The Guardian: Letters: Perhaps Shell might use some of its record profits (pounds 13.1bn) to comply with a recent Nigerian court decision…

* Perhaps Shell might use some of its record profits (pounds 13.1bn) to comply with a recent Nigerian court decision which declared the continued massive and wanton flaring of gas from the Niger delta oilfields to be illegal. The people of the delta have for five decades suffered gross air, land and water pollution that would never be tolerated on Shell's home ground in the UK and the Netherlands.

* Some see oil company profits as a case for higher taxes, while others believe this would damage business incentives and take away from our pensions funds. Perhaps a better response would be to place a statutory obligation on companies like Shell to invest a proportion of their profits in environmentally sustainable technology. Ten per cent of their profits invested in renewable energy would mean pounds 1.3bn extra in just one year.
