#ExxonKnew Activist Omits Key Facts In Testimony Before Human Rights Commission in the Philippines
Geoffrey Supran, the co-author of a Harvard study accusing ExxonMobil of conspiring to conceal the effects of carbon emissions, recently presented his findings to the Philippines’ Commission on Human Rights. But after being sworn in, the professor omitted key information from the panel, most notably about the criticism his research has faced.
Supran published his heavily criticized study, coauthored by Harvard professor Naomi Oreskes, in 2017. Professor Oreskes has been involved in the effort to undermine Exxon for years and was cited by the New York Times as an architect of the infamous 2012 conference in La Jolla, Calif., where activists devised their playbook for taking on energy industry. An Energy In Depth investigation of their study found that Supran and Oreskes omitted evidence and mischaracterized their data in order to advance their pre-determined narrative.
