What are we doing to keep our planet habitable? Well, the oil industry certainly wants you to think that its continued existence is perfectly compatible with a non-deadly atmosphere, but is it? No, not really. By Climate Denier Roundup That’s a simplified description of findings from a new report from the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI), which […]
Royal Dutch Shell is a Dutch company which means it is subject to the laws of the Netherlands. On April 5, Friends Of The Earth Netherlands filed suit against Shell seeking to force it to address its role in the climate emergency confronting the world and all its people. The lawsuit includes 17,000 private individuals […]
British-Dutch oil major Royal Dutch Shell has made it clear this week that, at least publicly, it has no interest in doing business as usual, rebuking US President Donald Trump and his administration to tighten methane leakage. And Maarten Wetselaar, the Director of Shell’s Integrated Gas & New Energies division, sat down with Bloomberg Television on Monday […]
Why did Shell just acquire an EV charging company? (Hint: Executive pay now linked to carbon emissions!)
Money talks, that other stuff walks. That’s the takeaway from Royal Dutch Shell’s new policy of linking executive pay to carbon emissions. Shell announced the new policy last month, and it already seems to be having an effect. Yesterday the company announced it has acquired Greenlots, a leader in the EV charging field. By Tina […]
Royal Dutch Shell, better known simply as Shell, announced on Monday a target to reduce and maintain its methane emissions intensity for all its oil and gas assets below 0.02% by 2025 which will see the company implement a variety of programs.

By Charles Morris EVANNEX. Recognizing that they can’t beat ‘em in the end, three Europe-based […]
Earlier this week Royal Dutch Shell threw a curveball at the climate change denial movement by suggesting that the UK should shorten up its timetable for banning internal combustion engines, and today here comes the knockout blow from something called the ZEV Challenge. The newly announced global initiative aims to rally the purchasing power of governments […]
As Yogi Berra used to say, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over” — but it’s over. The reign of the conventional internal combustion engine vehicle is coming to a close and electric vehicles are poised to dominate. In the most recent development, last Friday the leading global oil company Royal Dutch Shell announced that it […]
Shell Oil seems to have acknowledged that the car of tomorrow will be powered by an electric motor, but the source of the electrons that power those motors is still a question mark. Shell thinks that the public’s familiarity with “filling up”, coupled to the “range anxiety” being expressed by the hundreds of thousands of […]
It hasn’t even been two years since Shell abandoned it’s stupid and expensive arctic oil drilling campaign. But the Trump administration – that never met a stupid idea it wasn’t gung-ho in favor of – has reopened the can of worms. And of course, there’s a hefty Russian connection. By Jeremy Bloom Royal Dutch Shell […]
This week’s London Camp for Climate Action is actually a training event, taking place within sight of the City of London and preparing activists for the UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen.

In 1995, environmentalist Ken Saro-Wiwa was executed by the Nigerian military government, along with eight other Ogoni activists, for protesting against the devastation of the Niger Delta by oil companies, particularly Royal Dutch Shell. If Shell is convicted, the case will provide precedence for holding transnational companies owned or operated in the United States responsible for human rights atrocities committed overseas.
