Rockefellers at war: Famous family feud after some descendants speak out against ExxonMobil – the company to which they owe their fortune – for downplaying climate change truth

  • Some members of the Rockefeller family are speaking out against ExxonMobil, which grew from ancestor John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil 
  • The descendants had funded research, showing that ExxonMobil knew more about global warming earlier than they let on 
  • They now want the company to apologize for its past 
  • Not all in the family agree with this contingent however 
  • ‘I don’t think denouncing a family legacy is the best way to go about doing this,’ Ariana Rockefeller said
