Big Oil execs testifyExecutives from some of the world's biggest oil companies denied in U.S. congressional testimony on Thursday that they continue to misinform the public about the role of fossil fuels in climate change and resisted calls to ask lobbying groups they fund to stop obstructing climate-friendly policies.

It was the first time executives of the top oil majors - ExxonMobil (XOM.N), Shell Oil (RDSa.L), BP America (BP.L) and Chevron (CVX.N) - and the heads of the American Petroleum Institute (API) and Chamber of Commerce answered questions about climate change in Congress under oath.

Democratic Representative Ro Khanna said at the House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Reform hearing that oil companies have started to improve their talking points around climate change. But Khanna said their support of lobbying groups that either deny climate science or work to kill major climate policies contradicts their statements.
