However, knowing EXACTLY what you’re talking about and avoiding confusion is A MUST. Transparency and truth must be preserved.
Presenting Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, member of the “squad” and hard-left heavyweight. Tlaib is a member of the House Oversight Committee — where, on Thursday, oil executives from ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron, and Royal Dutch Shell were paraded before the panel to take their licks from Democrats.
As The Washington Post’s Maxine Joselow and Dino Grandoni reported, “the left sought “to grill them about what Democrats say is their decades-long history of sowing doubt about the effects their products are having on Earth’s temperature and the stability of its climate system.”
However, she is not quite sure why she roasted the grill!
“During the hearing, Tlaib accused oil companies of funding trade groups like One Alaska and Colorado Rising, which opposed stringent environmental regulations, including the accusation that Chevron owned a firm that bankrolled Colorado Rising in part.”
“When you look at these ads, they don’t say the name Exxon, BP, Chevron anywhere,” Tlaib said. “Y’all hide and you deceive the public.”
Chevron CEO Mike Wirth would later clarify that Chevron didn’t own Noble Energy, the company that funded Colorado Rising, when it was giving them the money.
“Mike, Mike Wirth,” she said. “When are you going to cut the check?”
There was a pause. “Congresswoman, I’m not sure I understand the context of your question.”
“That’s OK,” Tlaib replied.
“Chevron has about 70 serious cases of environmental and community abuses in 31 countries worldwide, owing over $50 billion in judgments and settlements,” Tlaib continued after a short exchange.
Wirth said he wasn’t familiar with any of the data she was citing — and, also, she never offered a source for the information either.
