With wildfires burning in Colorado and thousands of heat records being set across the country, Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson had the temerity to claim that:
‘‘We have spent our entire existence adapting. We'll adapt . . . . It’s an engineering problem and there will be an engineering solution.’’
Of course, we need to continue developing and deploying new technologies, but we cannot merely engineer our way out of this crisis. We need policy change on a global scale and Exxon has been at the forefront of those blocking change.
