What does Rex Tillerson’s 41-year record at ExxonMobil reveal about how he will function as the President’s chief foreign affairs adviser?

On Monday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 11-10 to send Tillerson’s secretary of state nomination to the Senate for a full vote. During his confirmation hearings, Tillerson acknowledged “[t]he risk of climate change," but in 2008 and 2009, while CEO of ExxonMobil, the company doubled spending “to successfully thwart congressional and White House efforts to pass meaningful climate change legislation,” reports oil and energy expert Antonia Juhasz.
