I think your comment has some merit although for many people on the left virtually all that is bad is blamed on large corporations just like on the right everything is blamed on big government. But is is well known that Exxon funded a large disinformation campaign on global warming in the 1990s. At that time of course it was quite clear that global warming had the potential to be catastrophic and the initial IPCC report on global warming had already been issued and the UN was already having annual international climate meetings. So Exxon not only hid what they knew but was actively disseminating false information to prevent action. That being said, I think there is plenty of blame to go around and probably most American deserve some share of the blame. Despite what we now know I do not see any reduction of SUVs on the road. Flying is increasing not decreasing. People are still eating large quantities of meat and diary and I do not expect that to change. People are still filling their houses with all sorts of things, many probably not necessary. Overall I would say oil companies, and particularly Exxon, deserves more blame than anything else but oil companies should not take all the blame. It is a vast problem and certainly in developed countries and in countries with emerging economies the blame should be widespread. We need action from the highest level of government, all lower levels of government, all types of businesses and institutions, and individuals..
