In an appearance on MSNBC, entrepreneur, climate change activist, and Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson expressed that he is “hopeful” about Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of State, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson.
About Tillerson’s climate change stance, Branson questioned claims that he is a denier: “He said, not so long ago that the risks of climate change are very serious, and they do warrant action.”
“What we’re hopefuly for is taht when he’s no longer running ExxonMobil and he’s actually in a position of great authority in America, in government, that he will actually be able to do something about [climate change]…but he is at least somebody that knows that climate change is serious and warrants action,” Branson said of Tillerson’s future as Secretary of State. Branson further said that he hopes to “work with [Tillerson] in getting something done.”
Asked how he can expect to work with the Trump administration if many of his cabinet members deny climate change, Branson expected Tillerson “to educate the rest of his Cabinet into the dangers of climate change and help business…do something about it.”
