    Shell CEO Ben van Beurden says he will not abandon oil despite the overwhelming evidence that we are on the brink of climate and ecological collapse.

    Exclusive: No choice but to invest in oil, Shell CEO says

    “Despite what a lot of activists say, it is entirely legitimate to invest in oil and gas because the world demands it,” van Beurden said. “We have no choice” but to invest in long-life projects, he added.
    Shell plans to greenlight more than 35 new oil and gas projects by 2025, according to an investor presentation from June.

    Australia’s prime minister pledges to outlaw climate boycotts, arguing they threaten the economy
    Morrison, an evangelical Christian and a vocal supporter of President Trump, finds himself aligned with the U.S. leader on support for the coal industry. Australia is one of the largest coal producers on earth, with the industry supplying roughly 50,000 jobs but disproportionately responsible for greenhouse gas emissions.
    During his speech, Morrison said his government was looking at “serious mechanisms that can successfully outlaw these indulgent and selfish practices that threaten the livelihoods of fellow Australians.” He argued that the “right to protest does not mean there is an unlimited license to disrupt people’s lives and disrespect your fellow Australians.”
