Dubious deletion of Wikipedia article about Shell environmental issues

Published in The Washington Post in relation to their article: ‘Shell foresaw climate dangers in 1988 and understood Big Oil’s big role’

By John Donovan
It may be relevant that in 2010 an entire Wikipedia article devoted to “Royal Dutch Shell environmental issues” was deleted. A copy of the deleted content can be viewed on my Shell focussed website:

I can provide Shell internal documents about Shell’s wish to covertly edit Wikipedia articles about its activities and information indicating that Shell employees did do so.
This website and sisters,,,, and, are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia segment.
