Laughter erupted after former Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson refused to answer a question asked by, former Clinton VP choice, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.).

In Tillerson’s confirmation hearing, Kaine asked Tillerson about allegations that Exxon Mobil knew as early as the 1970s that the burning of fossil fuels posed a potential issue for the environment. In addition, Kaine insinuated that Exxon Mobil and Tillerson in fact funded a number of outside groups that downplay or dismiss climate change.
