ABSTRACT
The editorial contrasts the vision held by the John D. Rockefeller family for the future of Exxon Mobil Corp with the traditional thinking of Exxon's stockholders and chairman of the board and chief-executive officer Rex Tillerson. The author explains that the Rockefellers want Exxon to transition toward developing renewable energy sources, while Tillman, corporate executives, and the stockholders believe in continuing the corporate focus on petroleum-based fuels.
