‘Greenwashing’ and ‘dirty tricks’: Shell sparks fierce backlash with emissions tweet

‘Greenwashing’ and ‘dirty tricks’: Shell sparks fierce backlash with emissions tweet

AOC and Greta Thunberg lead criticism of multinational fossil fuel firm

Her tweet refers to executives at Shell who have publicly admitted they knew decades ago that burning fossil fuels would cause the planet to warm. Shell chief executive Ben van Beurden said in a Time magazine interview this year: “Yeah, we knew. Everybody knew.”

Harry Cockburn: 03 Oct 2020

Multinational oil and gas company Shell – the second-largest investor-owned company in the world – is no stranger to the criticisms and concerns of the environmental movement, but this week, the energy giant inspired fresh anger with a tweet asking how people were reducing their emissions. read more

We welcome the #energydebate, the oil major counters

Royal Dutch Shell PLC had a poll for consumers this week: What habits are individuals willing to give up to cut emissions, it asked.

A stampede of Twitter responses had a follow-up for the oil-and-gas super major: Are you serious?

Some comments, which eventually topped 4,000 as of Tuesday, made note of the less than 200 poll responses (for an account that has some 550,000 followers) to this four-answer query: read more

Shell’s climate poll on Twitter backfires spectacularly

Shell’s climate poll on Twitter backfires spectacularly

Oil giant accused of gaslighting after asking users: ‘What are you willing to change?’

Damian Carrington Environment editor: @dpcarrington: Tue 3 Nov 2020 13.09 GMT

A climate poll on Twitter posted by Shell has backfired spectacularly, with the oil company accused of gaslighting the public.

The survey, posted on Tuesday morning, asked: “What are you willing to change to help reduce emissions?”

Though it received a modest 199 votes the tweet still went viral – but not for the reasons the company would have hoped. The US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one high-profile respondent, posting a tweet that was liked 350,000 times. read more

NEW YORK INTELLIGENCER: Shell Is Looking Forward

EXTRACTS (Entire New York Magazine article can be read here)

Since 2017, when I published a book about American millennials, I’ve had the occasional cold call from corporations to come talk about my work, all but one of which I’ve turned down. But last fall, the Shell Scenarios team — as in Royal Dutch Shell, one of the biggest oil companies in the world — offered me £2,000 in exchange for a 15-minute talk and my participation in a group exercise. Its internal corporate think tank was holding a daylong conference about how generational change would affect the hopefulness projected in what the company calls the “Sky Scenario,” which it describes as “a technically possible but challenging pathway for society to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.” I’m not a climate expert, but apparently I qualify as a generational whisperer, at least to Shell, and to talk to me about global warming, the giant energy conglomerate wanted to fly me to London from Philadelphia, business class. I warned them that I couldn’t keep their money and asked if I’d need to sign an NDA. When they said no, I saw an opportunity to report on the oil company, undercover while in plain sight, without technically lying to anyone. It was too good to pass up. I said yes, then I emailed my editor. read more

3 Climate Change Student Conferences to Attend in 2020

Guest article

Climate change is one of the biggest concerns of humanity right now. Never in history, such changes have occurred so quickly and led to the results they do now. Today, the consequences of a hurricane over the Caribbean islands can be felt in Australia. The entire world is affected like never before.

Greta Thunberg has made it common for young people to speak about climate change with adults. Student engagement in pro-climate movements has largely increased. It is not purely research work that evaluates the impact of changes. Such a job can be done by professionals from EssayPro.com Customer Research Paper Writing. It is more about taking a proactive position to prevent such changes from happening. read more

Big Oil Climate Suits

MARIA DINZEO: FEB 5, 2020

(CN) – The Ninth Circuit waded into a thorny jurisdictional dispute Wednesday over whether federal or state law governs a spate of city and county lawsuits against oil and gas giants like BP and Chevron.

In 2017, Oakland and San Francisco filed twin lawsuits demanding billions of dollars from the big oil and gas companies to abate the public nuisance of global warming, caused by an alleged 50-year disinformation campaign designed to deny and discredit climate change science. read more

Risk of a sharp collapse in asset prices of oil companies

The $1.3trn cost of leaving energy underground

Unless a solution is found for climate change in the coming decade, there is a risk of a sharp collapse in asset prices of oil companies. 

Alan Livsey: Feb 5, 2020

Donald Trump was thinking about the teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg when he took aim at what he called the “prophets of doom” at Davos in January. But just as easily he could have been targeting global investors whose trenchant criticism of hydrocarbons has led to a shift in investment away from the traditional energy sector and into renewables.

This move represents a big problem for energy groups such as Exxon, BP and Saudi Aramco. Vast swaths of their oil, gas and coal reserves may never be extracted and burnt because doing so would intensify global warming, worsening weather events and threatening the loss of farmland and huge population displacement. read more

The Telegraph: Why pensioners can’t afford to stop investing in oil

THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH:

: 26 JANUARY 2020 • 5:00AM From page 9 of the Money Section

Why pension savers cannot afford to be ethical

There’s a climate crisis, but investors are increasingly relying on oil and sin stocks to survive, finds Harry Brennan

The world is currently on fire, according to the teenage climate change campaigner Greta Thunberg. Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos last week, the green activist demanded world leaders and money managers halt investment in fossil fuels and immediately, and completely, divest from “carbon assets” to avert a climate apocalypse and save the planet.

But can savers truly afford to put their money into exclusively ethical investments? read more

THE SUNDAY TIMES: You can be sure of Shell, if you dare

Thanks to Greta Thunberg — who last week took her campaign to business leaders gathered in Davos for the annual World Economic Forum — the climate-change debate should have reached every boardroom.

The implications are greatest in the oil and gas sector, which is wrangling with the imminent shift to low-carbon businesses.

“There are some investors who would be concerned that the capital being deployed in low-carbon businesses will not earn returns that would be as good as in the base businesses of these companies,” says Jason Gammel at Jefferies. read more
