  1. Yesterday (May 25) two new board members were elected to the board of Exxon.  These new board members have climate concerns!!!!  Who would have thought 5 years ago that climate activists would be on the ExxonMobil board! 

    Hopefully industry will start to work on climate solutions instead of denial.  There is hope for the future.
