Well, I can only imagine the quivering that’s going on at Shell HQ today.
What? They’re going to hang an ‘art installation’ up there? Oh noes! Art? We’d better think again about our entire corporate strategy! Let’s start breeding ickle fluffy kitteh catz instead. Everyone loves a kitteh, so we’ll become ShellFluffy instead.headfirstMember
Yeah what a waste of time, we should all let multinationals do what they like because we all know they’ve got our best interests at heart.
And Greenpeace have never had any effect on Shell’s actions….two words for you: Brent SparPosted 4 years agobigjimSubscriber
It’s probably good to raise general awareness of drilling in the arctic, but it’ll never be stopped. There isn’t an oil resource on earth that won’t ultimately be exploited, that’s one thing I’ve learnt from working in environmental consultancy.
Greenpeace are terrible negative campaigners though, by doing things that annoy and disrupt the public they put environmental campaigning in a negative light, I really wish they’d stop it, I guess this one isn’t too bad.Posted 4 years agoandyflaSubscriber
Brent spar was interesting, free peace told some outrageous lies about what was on the platform and then 6 months later issued a quiet press lease that they were wrong, I think it would have made an excellent marine refuge, much better than cutting it up on land, a bit like the rainbow warrior ?Posted 4 years agoandyflaSubscriber

One rule for Greenpeace (rainbow warrior ) and one for the nasty big companies.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

What’s wrong with drilling near the North Pole?
New drilling anywhere’s a bad idea (if you accept global warming, anyway), it’s all people thinking about prolonging fossil fuel dependance but drilling more oil = releasing more carbon.
The arctic campaign’s more or less artistic licence I reckon- release carbon > melt ice, and arctic drilling brings the 2 together.

That’s just a tiny bit biased 😆 They released bad info, was it an “outrageous lie” or was it a mistake? Mostly it’s accepted as being a genuine mistake based on bad sampling (the figure was extraopolated from an untypical sample, essentially, it wasn’t made up from whole cloth). And then they publically apologised when the figures were found to be wrong. (And worth mentioning, incidentally, that Shell’s claim was also wrong- less than half the real figure)
But in either case, their main campaign wasn’t based on the amount of oil on the spar- some folks claim otherwise but the reality is they only got that piece of information after they’d occupied the rig, well into the campaign, so that claim just doesn’t bear any inspection.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
What a fuss it would be if someone opened one of the windows to let some air in and then spotted a womnaz on the other side??!
Whatever the outcome for them it’s going to be mighty hot climbing…
Should have got Alain Robert to do it in under an hour 😆
I can see their reasoning (GPeace) but unfortunately this stunt falls flat.Posted 4 years ago
