ABSTRACT
This article reports that shareholder and environmental groups are demanding one of world's largest oil and gas firms to tell them what it is doing about global warming. Exxon Mobil Corp. is the only major oil and gas company ignoring global climate change issues. Investors have a right to know whether the company has a plan is to deal with regulatory pressure to reduce carbon emissions. A report that was released May 13, 2003, recommends shareholder support for proxy resolutions that call for greater disclosure of Exxon Mobil's strategy to deal with climate risk and its response to pressures for renewable energy.
