Company’s CEO given top industry award as Greenpeace says it has spent £20m funding researchers and thinktanks that promote misinformation
A major oil and gas conference in central London was blockaded by a protest against a top industry award given to the head of ExxonMobil, the oil company that is reported to have funded climate change denial.
Protesters blocked the entrance on Tuesday evening by glueing themselves to the doors at the Oil and Money conference at the Dorchester on Park Lane, which brings together the most senior executives in the industry. Signs on their backs read “Climate change is nothing to celebrate” and “You can ignore the science but you can’t ignore us”.
