Definitely a boost in the right direction:
"Along with Chevron, the board of Exxon is being urged by over 1,000 leading academics from some of the world’s top Universities to vote in favour of resolutions which are demanding greater openness by the oil giants on how climate change impacts their business strategy."
Protests. Pressure from the academic world. Divestment campaigns... and of course, the disasters issuing forth from an Earth that's WAY out of balance.
Will the oil barons change course? Or will their efforts finally be countered by an engaged world citizenry not willing to allow a relative handful of ridiculously privileged persons to sign their death warrants?
