If truly you think that Exxon or anyone else is making such a magnificent profit, you need merely invest in some shares to disabuse you of that falsehood. But again, whether a company makes profits has nothing to do with carbon in the atmosphere being either dangerous or benign. If only government could be prevented from making such "investments" (which are often paid for via property taxes, not gasoline taxes), maybe we would solve something. But the fact that government creates things unnecessarily is no excuse of them to then steal to pay for it. Make no mistake, that pilfered capital is pure profit to cronies, whether they ostensibly provide something of "value" in return or not. But this begs the question -- if it's not Exxon building the "roads, bridges, and infrastructure", then why are you blaming them for advocating for fossil fuels? It seems to me that government is the one advocating for it. They reap the most profits and also build our dependency on it! Exxon merely provides a product which anyone is free to buy or pass on. Only government forces you at gun point to fund roads you may not want. This still has nothing to do with whether or not CO2 is a threat, but at least if you're going to go off on a red herring, assign blame rationally.
