In case your permanent state of infuriation was starting to wane, here’s some more evidence that the oil companies knew about the dangers of climate change long before the rest of us did, and that they financed climate denialism despite what they knew long before the rest of us. From Inside Climate News:

They show that as the company pondered its responsibility to act, Shell's scientists urged it to heed the early warnings, even if, as they said, it might take until the 2000s for the mounting evidence to prove greenhouse gases in the atmosphere were causing unnatural climate change. "With the very long time scales involved, it would be tempting for society to wait until then before doing anything," company researchers wrote in a 1988 report based on studies completed in 1986. "The potential implications for the world are, however, so large that policy options need to be considered much earlier. And the energy industry needs to consider how it should play its part." Otherwise, a team of Shell experts said, "it could be too late to take effective countermeasures to reduce the effects or even to stabilize the situation.

The parallels to the way the tobacco industry used to operate are becoming very hard to ignore.


The scientists told the truth. The profit over people and planet Shell corporate board of directors did what they have always done about "externalized" costs.

Yep. VERY, VERY IMPOSSIBLY HARD TO IGNORE.
