‘Big oil is the new big tobacco’: Harvard professor attacks ‘denial and delay’ tactics of ExxonMobil

Europe Editor and Presenter

We were joined from Massachusetts by Dr Geoffrey Supran, the director of climate accountability at Harvard University and the author of a paper examining the public and private communications from ExxonMobil over the span of 40 years.

We also spoke to Dr Kerry Dinsmore, a chemical pollution expert at Fidra, a charity working to reduce plastic waste and chemical pollution in the environment, who was in Edinburgh, Scotland.
