You might say " but she worked for 3 years as an engineer for exxon/mobil."

She has been endorsed by the NRDC and the Sierra club. Here is what she said in 2007 about working for exxon/mobil:

You began your career as an engineer for Mobil Oil. Now you run one of the most environmentally conscious businesses in the United States. What did you learn at Mobil that you use in your current job?

What are the environmental challenges? What's the water quality in the community? These are all things that, when you see them on the ground, you recognize that there is a cost to consumption.
