Following sage advice from Jack Mehoff, Obnoxico’s Senior Corporate PR Consultant, Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson told shareholders at the company’s annual shareholder meeting “What good is it to save the planet if humanity suffers?”. Obnoxico advised Mr. Tillerson to take the Birkenstock sandal wearing, granola munching crowd head on and that is precisely what this brave, industrious man has done. Setting lower carbon emission levels would be devastating to Exxon’s quarterly earnings, earnings that have been breaking profit records for years now. Obnoxico recognizes and applauds Exxon Mobile’s achievement in maintaining record profits through the extraction and refinement of a non-renewable, 18th century energy resource. Fighting progressive energy initiatives and radical, data obsessed scientists is a difficult, thankless task..a task that Mr. Tillerson is well suited for. Hats off to Obnixico’s CEO of the Month!
