The Guardian brings to attention a video by Shell's film and video unit called Climate of Concern. Already in 1991, the oil giant warned that the use of fossil fuels would have a detrimental impact on climate, and going as far as suggesting "a new era of technical and economic cooperation" to prevent a catastrophe. Unfortunately, it seems that the oil industry has decided to go for a different approach, prioritising profits, not the environment.
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”. That was the startling warning issued by the oil giant Shell more than a quarter of a century ago.
The company’s farsighted 1991 film, titled Climate of Concern, set out with crystal clarity how the world was warming and that serious consequences could well result.
