    I was born and raised in Hawaii. I’ve had the opportunity and great privilege of training at outstanding academic centers abroad, but I always wanted to come home. I’m so glad to be in Hilo.

    Before most Americans were even aware of global warming, Exxon was investing in high-quality research on the subject. According to reports in the Los Angeles Times and elsewhere, the oil company’s scientists concluded in the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s that climate change was real, would transform the Earth’s landscape and was driven by human activity — especially the burning of fossil fuels.
