    A Brief Chat With Elon Musk About Climate Change, Rex Tillerson, and Donald Trump

    Bryan Menegus, January 26, 2017 (Gizmodo)

    Editor’s note: This piece reports Elon Musk’s views in his own words and is worth reading in full.

    “…[Tesla-SolarCity head Elon Musk’s explained his tweet] in support of Rex Tillerson, former CEO of ExxonMobil and likely Secretary of State under the Trump administration…[by saying] Tillerson obviously did a competent job running Exxon, one of the largest companies in the world…[As SecState, Tillerson will be] obligated to advance the cause of the US and [Musk said] he probably will…[Musk also supports Tillerson’s many public calls, going back to 2007, for] a carbon tax…[and said there] is no better person to push for that to become a reality…[Musk said pricing carbon] matters far more than pipelines or opening oil reserves…Many experts agree that a national carbon tax is needed…[but doubt Tillerson’s commitment to it because, during his leadership, ExxonMobil] gave over $3.6 million to the American Enterprise Institute from 1998 to 2012, an organization that has helped distort facts about climate change and undermine public confidence in the impact of carbon pollution…” click here for more
