Last fall, ExxonMobil executives hurried along the hushed, art-filled halls of the company’s Irving, Texas, headquarters, a 178-acre suburban complex some employees facetiously call “the Death Star,” to a series of emergency strategy meetings. The world’s largest oil explorer by market value had been hit by a pair of multipart investigations by InsideClimate News and the Los Angeles Times. Both reported that as early as the 1970s, the company understood more about climate change than it had let on and had deliberately misled the public about it. One of Exxon’s senior scientists noted in 1977—11 years before a NASA scientist sounded the alarm about global warming during congressional testimony—that “the most likely manner in which mankind is influencing the global climate is through carbon dioxide release from the burning of fossil fuels.”

Gold in EUR at the highest price for 2 years

Gold Climbs to Two-Year High as UBS Sees Start of New Bull Run. In 2016 we have seen a sharp increase of the flows into the gold equity ETFs, with both the GDX (large cap gold miners) and GDXJ (small cap gold miners). Year-to-date, the GDX has seen total flows increase by 135% to $10.1B while funds in the GDXJ have increased this year by 192% to $2.5B. With this increase in volumes traded, the current fund levels in the two ETFs now sit at or above record high levels not seen since late 2012 after the announcement of QE3. (Bloomberg, 03.07.16)
