Re: Climate Change: 97% scientific consensus? Try 99.94% insteadApr 10th, 2018
A Shell report predicted how devastating climate change would be — it’s from 1988
More notably, the report reveals that Shell knew decades ago that fossil fuels, and the oil and gas industry in particular, would play a major role in greenhouse gas emissions.
It estimated that in 1981, 44 per cent of carbon dioxide emissions came from oil.
“With fossil fuel combustion being a major source of CO2 in the atmosphere, a forward looking approach by the energy industry is clearly desirable,” the report urged.
Just like Big Tobacco and Ford. They understand the damage and the risk and the liability and they calculate that their profits will outweigh their expenses.
