Shell boss under fire for saying cutting fossil fuel production is ‘dangerous’
Image of post in post detailed view


Climate campaigners have criticized Shell CEO Wael Sawan for his recent statements, labeling them as "cynical," which suggested that reducing global oil and gas production would be dangerous and irresponsible. Sawan argued that such reductions could lead to higher costs of living and negatively impact global energy supplies. However, activists argue that Shell's comments ignore the urgent need to address climate change and prioritize renewable energy alternatives.
Friends of the Earth's head of climate, Jamie Peters, emphasized the irony of Shell's position, stating that the company profits from fossil fuels while fueling both the climate crisis and soaring energy costs. He highlighted the necessity of investing in clean, affordable renewables and energy efficiency for a sustainable future.
Shell's decision to abandon plans to cut oil extraction and focus on increasing shareholder payouts has further raised concerns among environmental groups. They argue that these actions prioritize short-term profits over long-term environmental goals.
Critics pointed out that ongoing fossil fuel production is incompatible with global climate targets and ignores the need to limit temperature rise. The International Energy Agency has stressed that new fossil fuel projects should be halted to prevent catastrophic climate change.
In response to Sawan's claims, climate policy experts and activists emphasized that renewable energy sources are cleaner, more cost-effective, and promote public health. They called for a just transition away from fossil fuels, ensuring a fair and equitable future for all.
It is essential for companies like Shell to acknowledge the urgency of the energy transition and take decisive action to address climate change rather than perpetuating dependence on fossil fuels.

      Rapidly phasing out fossil fuels is critical to address the climate crisis because fossil fuels are the biggest driver of the climate crisis.
