Keith McCoy, the Exxon Mobil Corp. lobbyist who was secretly recorded detailing what he said were the oil giant’s efforts to undercut efforts to fight climate change, is no longer with the company. 

“I can confirm that Keith McCoy no longer works for the company,” spokesman Casey Norton said in an email. “It is a private personnel matter, and we will decline to provide further comment.”
