Shell: deep in the black stuff

Shell held a stormy annual meeting yesterday, but its problems are not confined to London. Next week, the company is on trial in New York, accused of complicity in human rights abuses – including the death of Ken Saro-Wiwa, a Nigerian environmental activist and author – and it also faces legal action in Holland over repeated oil spills. Meanwhile, fighting in the Niger delta is escalating, and the leading rebel group has declared all-out war on the company. Beleaguered Shell tried to pour oil on its troubled waters by saying that it has reduced its greenhouse emissions by all of 14% in 10 years.
