This is the 1991 Shell tape that has been hidden from the public revealing the devastating impacts of climate change and fossil fuels.
Shell spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying against serious climate policy and funding disinformation campaigns of climate science ($22 million annually).
Yet they knew (as did Exxon as the historical record clearly shows).
The 28-minute film was uncovered by Dutch journalist Jelmer Mommers of The Correspondent, along with a raft of internal documents and reports by the company’s scientists that show just how thoroughly and precisely Shell understood the the damage caused by its product. Burning fossil fuels, the film warned, was causing climate change “at a rate faster than at any time since the end of the ice age. Change too fast, perhaps, for life to adapt without severe dislocation.” The Secret VHS Tape That Could Have Stopped Climate Change
It’s plainly obvious when you grasp the fundamentals of this gigantic coverup by Big Oil that they chose greed over human survival. And now the entire world, the whole of humanity, and the entire future of the human race, and every other living creature is having to pay the price for their greed.
And now, the Trump Administration intends to exploit every possible fossil fuel resource. We’re simply too stupid as a species to finally put a stop to this ecocide.
