For years, Royal Dutch Shell has tried to portray itself as one of the good guys in the battle against climate change. It recently completed improvements to an oil upgrader in Fort Saskatchewan, near Edmonton, to capture up to a third of its greenhouse gas emissions – equivalent to removing the annual pollution of about 250,000 cars.

On its website, the company posts stories about how to achieve a low-carbon-future and sponsors a fuel efficient vehicle in the eco-marathon.

But a recent conversation left a high-profile Canadian university official concerned that the oil company might not be so nice if the school went ahead with divestment – a policy to eliminate its investments in fossil fuel companies.

“A senior executive at Shell… told me directly that the company is monitoring the university divestment movement closely and would look unfavorably on any university that divested in regard to future investment,” said Chris Moore, the Dean of Science at Halifax’s Dalhousie University.
