Rex Tillerson, the former chairman and CEO of Exxon Mobil, was confirmed by the Senate in the most contentious vote for Secretary of State in recent history (the final vote was 56 to 43).
Make no mistake, Tillerson’s confirmation represents a hostile takeover of US foreign policy by the fossil fuel industry and threatens to roll back decades of progress to address climate and transition to a clean energy economy. The only experience Mr. Tillerson has is advocating for the fossil fuel industry which will now be official US foreign policy.
Together, we must RESIST this hostile takeover and ensure that action to address climate change and transition to a clean energy economy is not undone. Together, we will stand up to the fossil fuel industry and continue to move Oregon forward as a leader and model for the rest of country on climate action and clean energy jobs.
