ExxonMobil: "Green Company of the Year?" | Mother Jones

OK this sounds pretty crazy and the thinking here is that Forbes is utilizing a "shock-jock" mentality by making such a controversial claim. It seems that ExxonMobil may be making up for lost time by going to natural gas production, and going forward, that may be "helpful". But it could also be considered too little too late.

And let us not forget the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, which has caused an unthinkable amount of environmental damage. So, the question is, do we give ExxonMobil the benefit of the doubt as if they are doing pennance for past deeds and at least trying? Or is this just another publicity stunt to benefit both ExxonMobil and Forbes?

I guess it really boils down to the answer to this question: with this on its cover, will you buy Forbes?
