Shell is one of the biggest climate polluters in the world. This transnational company has known about the severity of climate change and the impacts of oil and gas drilling for decades, but has not only misled the public on the issue, it continues drilling for fossil fuels. Across the world Shell’s climate wrecking activities are leaving a trail of devastation, from Australia to the Netherlands. We cannot save the climate if large corporations continue to pollute the planet. This is why Friends of the Earth Netherlands is taking Shell to court.
This historic case could set a powerful legal precedent: if we win, one of the world’s biggest polluters will have to stop wrecking the climate. Join the case against Shell as an honorary co-claimant.
I support the legal action taken by Friends of the Earth Netherlands to demand that Shell stops its climate-wrecking activities and keeps oil and gas in the ground.
Shell’s oil and gas reserves in Australia contain some 1,000,000,000ton of CO2. Over the last 10 years Shell has invested more than $50 billion in Australian oil and gas projects, many which will continue produce fossil fuels for the over 25 years. This is not in line with the Paris Climate agreement and the court should require Shell to limit carbon emissions from their polluting business.
