Court Orders Shell Oil To Cut Its Carbon Emissions

Shell should start by refusing to sell its products to the Dutch court system. They should ban the members of the court from purchasing any of their products. All this ruling will do is raise prices and cause more problems for consumers. And a ruling in favor of the climate cult is rare, but, the judges are being captured by the cult

Court orders Royal Dutch Shell to cut carbon emissions by 45% by 2030

A court in the Hague has ordered Royal Dutch Shell to cut its global carbon emissions by 45% by the end of 2030 compared with 2019 levels, in a landmark case brought by Friends of the Earth and over 17,000 co-plaintiffs.

The oil giant’s sustainability policy was found to be insufficiently “concrete” by the Dutch court in an unprecedented ruling that will have wide implications for the energy industry and other polluting multinationals.

The Anglo-Dutch company was told it had a duty of care and that the level of emission reductions of Shell and its suppliers and buyers should be brought into line with the Paris climate agreement.

Judge Larisa Alwin said Shell must “at once” reduce its CO2 output, adding that the ruling would have “far-reaching consequences” for the company and may “curb the potential growth of the Shell group”.

Roger Cox, lawyer for Friends of the Earth Netherlands, also known as Milieudefensie, called on organisations across the world to “pick up the gauntlet”, and take legal action to force multinationals to play their full part in tackling the climate emergency.

He said: “This is a turning point in history. This case is unique because it is the first time a judge has ordered a large polluting corporation to comply with the Paris climate agreement. This ruling may also have major consequences for other big polluters.”

Climate cultists can’t win by convincing people, so, they’re using the courts to jam through their cult beliefs. This won’t harm Shell: it will just increase the cost of product. Which means the cost of other goods that are delivered by fossil fueled vehicle, plane, and ship will increase. That’s a win, right?

If Shell played this right, they’d cooperate by first refusing to sell its products to the Dutch government. Let’s see the Dutch government operate. Then by moving their company, all its assets, and all its operations out of the Netherlands. Which means all its tax money goes bye bye, and citizens and companies are left with fewer options for filling their fossil fueled vehicles. Shell will have carbon neutral footprint then, eh? Instead, they’re playing this game

A Shell spokesperson said: “Urgent action is needed on climate change which is why we have accelerated our efforts to become a net-zero emissions energy company by 2050, in step with society, with short-term targets to track our progress.

“We are investing billions of dollars in low-carbon energy, including electric vehicle charging, hydrogen, renewables and biofuels. We want to grow demand for these products and scale up our new energy businesses even more quickly. We will continue to focus on these efforts and fully expect to appeal today’s disappointing court decision.”

Well, good luck in putting yourself out of business.

    Teach in 1995 you could buy a share of Shell zzstock for a bit over 30 bucks
    It is the same cost now
    Big oil companies know their future lies not in fossil fuels
    All have pledged to be carbon neutral by 2050 All are investing in renewable energy
    Teach is that the way you would run a phone store? Piss your customers off? Threaten not selling them things if they complained about your environmental policies?
    Shell is a 50% owner in Atlantic Shores wind turbine project off of New Jersey
    They are a major player in Euro wind
    The future is in renewable electricity not coal

    Never could get my car to run right on Shell gas despite multiple tune ups. Haven’t bought a Shell product in nearly half a century. On the other hand, the items made from Shell oil like plastics interior car parts, ect will go up in price causing more problems for low income individuals.
