CEO says Shell will not “go soft” on oil & gas, and vast reforestation will be needed for 1.5˚C target

Van Buerden insists that gas has a key role to play in a 1.5˚C world. “You can have an endless discussion about semantics. Is it a transition role, a destination role? In the end it is a bit of both.”

Reading the IPCC report this week, and seeing this said at the Oil And Money conference, the evidence of Shell’s disconnection from reality could not starker. How dirty are they going to be willing to play to foist “a bit of both” on the world?
