Climate Protester Interrupts Rex Tillerson’s Confirmation Hearing

Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday.

During Tillerson testimony, a climate change protester interrupted Tillerson, shouting, “Please don’t put Exxon in charge of the State Department. Protect our children and grandchildren.”

Tillerson previously served as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ExxonMobil before being nominated by President-elect Trump.
