Climate Change Demands Action Now, Shell’s Chief Executive Says

By Ayesha Daya – Jan 17, 2011 4:17 PM GMT+0000

Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s chief said the implementation of climate change agreements made at Cancun last month “won’t happen overnight”, and policymakers must take action now “because the clock is ticking.”

“In the short term, we should focus on areas where we can get the cheapest and quickest carbon dioxide reductions,” Chief Executive Officer Peter Voser said at a renewable energy conference in Abu Dhabi today. “It will take a while for international standards to be implemented, but we are of the opinion that we have to move now.” read more

Shell CEO Voser claims technology is key to energy security

LONDON, July 27 (UPI) — The world is facing drastic energy shortages unless investors back technological advancements in all forms of energy, executives said in London.

Peter Voser, the chief executive officer at Royal Dutch Shell, told an audience in London that the global community needed to look for new ways to exploit renewable and fossil fuels.

“Even assuming heroic steps to use energy more efficiently, the world will need to develop all energy types,” he said.

Scientists at Shell said that without new ways to increase energy supplies, the world could face looming energy shortages in the coming decades even as new sources of energy such as Iraqi oil come on stream. read more

The View From Big Oil

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

MARCH 8, 2010

Peter Voser of Royal Dutch Shell talks about the kind of energy legislation he’d like to see

These days, giant oil companies find themselves trying to balance two big pressures on their business. Governments are trying to slash carbon emissions—but the world’s thirst for oil is growing by leaps and bounds. Peter Voser, chief executive officer of Royal Dutch Shell PLC, is navigating the situation by joining a business-backed effort to push for global-warming laws, and making sure Shell has a strong exposure to natural gas and alternative fuels.

Mr. Voser sat down with The Wall Street Journal’s Alan Murray and Kimberley Strassel to talk about the future of climate-change legislation, the company’s push beyond oil, the prospects for electric vehicles and more. read more

Dutch city taking legal action against Royal Dutch Shell on safety grounds

BARENDRECHT, Netherlands: A plan by oil giant Shell to store 300,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year in a depleted gas reservoir beneath a Dutch city has drawn the ire of residents and local officials who have vowed to thwart it. "We are going to do everything to oppose this project," declared Barendrecht deputy mayor Simon Zuurbier, who voiced fears for the safety of the city's 50,000 inhabitants. "We are taking legal action to get it cancelled and we'll approve none of the required permits."

Editors must love Shell. Almost whatever I have read about climate change and the UN talks in Copenhagen in recent weeks, it has been flanked by the familiar Shell logo somewhere in the background.

From geeky titles like New Scientist to politico mags such as Prospect and New Statesman; and newspapers like the Guardian, the world’s second largest corporation has been splashing out – filling screens and newsprint with adverts and underwriting special supplements. Shell also sponsored a major research project by the Economist Intelligence Unit, called Countdown to Copenhagen, launched early this year at a Shell-sponsored “sustainability summit”. read more

Big Oil Behind Copenhagen Climate Scam

Shell Oil and British Petroleum express their vehement support for a global carbon tax in “Copenhagen Communique”

Monday, December 7, 2009

The big irony behind top globalists descending on Copenhagen in luxury private jets and stretch limos is not just the fact that their own behavior completely contradicts their self-righteous hyperbole about CO2 emissions, but that their propaganda is vehemently supported by the very same big oil interests they accuse climate skeptics of pandering to. read more

Jim Hansen in the same bed as Exxon and Shell?

Strange bedfellows these, strange bedfellows indeed. On one side, curled snugly under the duvet, is Dr James Hansen, one of the earliest and most fierce prophets of climate change, and a man who has previously said that the chief executives of fossil fuel companies ‘should be tried for high crimes against humanity and nature'. Sharing a pillow on the other side are the chief executives of Shell and ExxonMobil, the world's biggest and second-biggest fossil fuel companies (actually biggest and second-biggest companies of any kind), Peter Voser and Rex Tillerson. As they wake up on this, the first morning of the Copenhagen climate summit, what is it that these former foes have found to unite them?

Politicians will put the focus on biofuels

...companies such as BP and Royal Dutch Shell, which have bailed out of some unproductive renewable energy sources, are directing most of their environmental attention towards next-generation biofuels designed to alleviate these problems. Shell, for example, is experimenting with cellulosic ethanol made from plant waste such as straw and wood chips and biodiesel made from algae, which can be grown in the sea. However, technologically advanced versions are unlikely to be widespread for another 10 years at least.

Let’s accelerate pace of new energy technologies

Times Online

Peter Voser, Viewpoint

The Times: December 5, 2009

We are seeing early signs of a far-reaching shift in our world’s energy system. Desire for secure energy supplies and concern over global warming have consumers, companies and governments embarking on a long journey towards a more sustainable energy future.

Government policymakers are in the best position to accelerate our trip. Starting with the climate change summit in Copenhagen this month, they will largely determine whether society steps on the throttle or idles along at the current speed. Building a new energy future will take huge effort. But it will be a boon for consumers, thanks to a great proliferation of energy types, from cleaner fossil fuels to renewables, such as biofuels, wind and solar, to nuclear and hydrogen. Everything from cars to fridges will be much more efficient than what we know today. read more

Europe Bypassed on Climate Summit

ArcelorMittal, a giant steelmaker, and Royal Dutch Shell, the oil and gas group, are among companies that have threatened to slow down investment inside the 27-nation bloc unless the rest of the industrialized world, and the United States in particular, adopt similar carbon-capping systems.

Peter Voser is reeling off Shell’s projects to develop the next generation of biofuels when he gets to its algae scheme in Hawaii. He stops mid-sentence with a doleful look on his face. “I’ve never been to Hawaii,” says Voser, whose whistle-stop tour of Shell’s operations around the world most recently took him to Qatar and Nigeria. “Such are our hardships,” he jokes. read more
