Why's nobody talking about this?This article is from 2015 and I only read about this now.

Major oil companies knew about climate change and its implications as far back as 1977 and the only thing they thought about is being able to drill for 5 instead of 2 months if the Arctic ice melts.

They knew about the consequences AND they invested in climate change denier movements.

This is outrageous!

@TheDinolass If you really want to blow your noodle, look into the connections between climate denial, young-earth creationists, religious fundamentalism, and the oil industry.
