Is it possible some of the biggest anti fossil fuels advocates are changing their minds? Mark Zuckerberg appears to be; even meeting with oil and gas workers.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg visited Williston, North Dakota last week as part of his quest to visit all 50 states, sparking questions about a possible Presidential run. While in Williston, Zuckerberg met with oil and gas workers in an unusual display for a Silicon Valley mogul.
He actually talked to the people and did not issue the standard “fossil fuels are evil” press statement. Instead, Mr. Zuckerberg donned a hard hat, mingled and took to Facebook to remind people that while he sees climate change as one of the world’s most important issues, he encourages people to go out and learn about the situation from all perspectives.
