Guardian Reports Environmentalists Say Shell Strategy Risks Catastrophic Climate Change
Leaked internal Shell documents reveal Shell believes temperature will rise 4°C, then 6°C above today's

Terry Macalister at The Guardian reports that internal Royal Dutch Shell business planning documents have been revealed which show that Shell knows its current plans will cause Earth's surface temperature increase to exceed by 2 to 4 degrees Celsius the internationally agreed-upon maximum of 2°C, the level above which global climate change could easily run out of control. Shell has not yet publicly admitted that its production plans assume this larger temperature rise. Until the matter of this known deception is resolved, I recommend we do not believe any public statements by Shell. I suppose we should have known that one or more big oil companies would make matters as difficult as possible.
