The Limits to Certainty in Title Examination; Bright Lines and Sharp Corners vs. Holistic and Harmonizing, and Those Pesky Fact Questions (Apr 2020)

Identify the factual matters that affect or determine ownership but cannot be addressed by an examination of record title, and the presumptions regarding these facts that allow title examiners to render opinions. Analyze the effect on title examination of recent cases that reject “bright lines and sharp corners,” magic words, mechanical rules and historic canons of construction in favor of a holistic and harmonizing approach to better discern the intent of the parties as expressed in the four corners of the conveyance.

Outlook for Energy: A Perspective to 2040 (Apr 2020)

The Outlook for Energy is ExxonMobil’s global view of energy demand and supply through 2040. It also highlights the dual challenge of providing affordable energy to support prosperity while reducing environmental impacts – including the risks of climate change. ExxonMobil uses the Outlook to help inform its long-term business strategies and investment plans. 
 
Energy is fundamental to modern life, and as the world’s population approaches 9 billion people in 2040, we are challenged to improve living standards everywhere. Understanding the factors that drive the world’s energy needs – and likely choices to meet those needs – is the mission of the Outlook. By sharing the Outlook with the public, ExxonMobil hopes to broaden that understanding. Energy matters to everyone, and we all play a role in shaping its future.
