May 1, 2008 -- The Rockefellers went to the mat with Exxon Mobil yesterday, leveraging their ancestor's role as company founder to press the oil giant to look to the future.
Descendants of John D. Rockefeller, who founded Standard Oil, criticized Exxon Mobil for its short-sighted focus on soaring oil prices and natural gas in the face of rapidly changing energy markets, and called for restructuring.
"They are fighting the last war, and they're not seeing they're facing a new war," Peter O'Neill, a great-great-grandson of the entrepreneur, said yesterday.
The oldest continuous shareholders in Exxon Mobil, the Rockefellers have rallied together 84 percent of their adult family members over age 21 to push for a split in the position of chairman of the board and CEO and address the need for cleaner technology.

It provided the mind-set for the Reagan administration, and it has come to ultimate fruition during the presidency of George W. Bush.
