Tell Shell: Stop Shelling Out for Climate Disinformation
"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 audicity 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.
