Exxon Mobil or ExxonMobil (NYSEXOM) is the world's biggest oil and gas company. It was created when Exxon and Mobil, both companies formed after the John D. Rockefeller's original Standard Oil company split apart, joined together in a merger to become one company. ExxonMobil has been involved in the global warming controversy[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12], as have other Big Oil corporations such as Royal Dutch Shell[13][14]
