ABSTRACT
The article looks at Exxon Mobil and its chief executive officer Rex Tillerson. In 2005 Exxon returned to the number 1 spot on the FORTUNE 500, which caps its emergence as not only the biggest but also the most powerful U.S. corporation. The article also discusses the Senate Judiciary Committee that was set up to protest such things as Exxon's skepticism about the causes of global warming and its puny investments in alternative energy. INSET: THE WORLD ACCORDING TO REX.
