Tell Shell: Stop Shelling Out for Climate Disinformation

Climate sci vs fossil fuel fiction

"I'm well aware that the industry's credibility is an issue," the CEO of Shell said during a recent moment of candor on climate change.

Our new infographic, Climate Science vs. Fossil Fuel Fiction, illustrates exactly why the fossil fuel industry lacks credibility on climate issues. Oil, gas, and coal interests have been deceiving the public for nearly 30 years.

And Shell continues to fund the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a group that spreads disinformation about climate science—just as they have done for years. Shell admits to funding ALEC, yet has the audacity to claim "We're not aligning with skeptics."

More than 100,000 people have called on Shell to stop funding ALEC—and we're just getting started. Keep up the pressure!

Tell Shell to stop funding ALEC's climate disinformation today. Join us in sending a strong message to Ben van Beurden, CEO of Shell.

Please send this letter to Ben van Beurden, CEO of Shell

Dear Mr. van Beurden,

Shell needs to take greater responsibility for its political spending. I ask you to no longer support the American Legislative Exchange Council and begin to engage honestly and openly about drastically reducing carbon emissions from fossil fuels.
