Shell faces backlash on social media after deciding to wade into the debate on climate change and how best to tackle it

  • Shell tweeted to ask users what they were willing to change to reduce emissions
  • Oil company seemed to suggest that other people’s behaviour was to blame
  • Climate campaigner Greta Thunberg, 17, called Shell out for its part to play 

Shell has faced a backlash on social media by deciding to wade into the debate on climate change and how best to tackle it.

The oil company, one of the biggest in the entire world, seemed to suggest that other people’s behaviour was to blame for damages to the environment.

Greta Thunberg, the 17-year-old climate campaigner, said: I don’t know about you, but I sure am willing to call-out the fossil-fuel companies for knowingly destroying future living conditions for countless generations for profit and then trying to distract people and prevent real systemic change through endless greenwash campaigns.’

The massive oil company originally tweeted to say: ‘What are you willing to change to help reduce emissions?’

Even though only 199 people replied to the poll, the tweet quickly went viral as scientists and campaigners quickly pointed out Shell’s own contributions to climate change.
