Should Exxon Pay For Hurricane Destruction?
As global warming kicks into overdrive - it's high time we started executing some corporations.
As the monstrous Hurricane Irma hurtled its way through the Caribbean towards Miami and South Florida, a new study published in the journal Climatic Change has revealed just just how responsible Big Oil really is for global warming.
As the study's authors wrote in the Guardian - their findings show that:
"... nearly 30% of the rise in global sea level between 1880 and 2010 resulted from emissions traced to the 90 largest carbon producers... More than 6% of the rise in global sea level resulted from emissions traced to ExxonMobil, Chevron and BP, the three largest contributors."
So, should Big Oil companies be slapped with a carbon tax or face the corporate death penalty?
