According to Shell’s New Lens Scenarios, we’re headed for a carbon-free future, where solar will be the dominant energy source by 2100. The report got almost universally upbeat press, praised in business and even environmental websites. Amory Lovins, Chief Scientist of the Rocky Mountain Institute, endorses Shell’s study: “Shell is the most far-sighted and strategic of the majors, largely because the Scenarios informed the thinking of Shell leadership and many others in the energy ecosystem.”

And Shell gets the highest social responsiblity rating from CSRHub of any big oil company.

But as study after study predicts, “carbon emissions will grow by roughly three percent a year… (exceeding the) 565-gigaton allowance in 16 years.” We’ll be facing Armageddon long before we’ve shifted from carbon-producing fuel to Shell’s scenario.
