Oil companies continue to pretend that they are “concerned” about the global warming movement.
In actual reality, oil companies like Royal Dutch Shell were in on the ground floor of funding the environmentalist movement, driving them in the direction of global warming.
Please, just go read about Maurice Strong, the oil billionaire who invented the climate change hoax.
Environmentalists will claim that the oil companies were “paying off” environmentalist movements – and that is true, but not in the way you think. They were paying them to focus on global warming. What global warming means is that oil costs a lot more. It means the oil companies are allowed to charge a lot more.
A Dutch court on Wednesday ordered Royal Dutch Shell to cut its carbon emissions by net 45% by 2030 compared to 2019 levels in a landmark case brought by climate activism groups, which hailed the decision as a victory for the planet.
The Hague District Court ruled that the Anglo-Dutch energy giant has a duty of care to reduce emissions and that its current reduction plans were not concrete enough.
The decision could set a precedent for similar cases against polluting multinationals around the world. Activists gathered outside the courtroom erupted into cheers as the decision was read out loud.
“The climate won today,” said Roger Cox, a lawyer for the Dutch arm of Friends of the Earth, which was one of the organizations behind the case.
“This ruling will change the world. Worldwide, people are in the starting blocks to take legal action against oil companies following our example,” Cox added.
The Hague court did not say how Royal Dutch Shell should achieve the ordered cutback, saying the energy giant’s parent company “has complete freedom in how it meets its reduction obligation and in shaping the Shell group’s corporate policy.”
In a written reaction, Shell said it expects to appeal the “disappointing court decision.”
Shell says it has set “an ambition to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, or sooner.”
The court said in an English language summary of its ruling that Shell was not currently in breach of its obligation to reduce emissions, as the environmental groups had argued, because the parent company was tightening its emissions policy.
The case in the Netherlands is the latest in a string of legal challenges filed around the world by climate activists seeking action to rein in emissions, but it is believed to be the first targeting a multinational company.
One of the first successful climate cases also was in the Netherlands, where the Supreme Court two years ago upheld a 2015 ruling requiring the government to cut emissions at least 25% by the end of 2020 from benchmark 1990 levels.
In February, a Paris court ruled that the French government had failed to take sufficient action to fight climate change in a case brought by four nongovernmental organizations. Last month, Germany’s top court said the federal government must set clear goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions after 2030.
Donald Pols, director of Friends of the Earth Netherlands, called the ruling in The Hague, “a monumental victory for our planet, for our children and a big leap towards a livable future for everyone.”
At no point are the oil companies going to make less money because they are producing less oil.
People can’t stop using electricity. All that can happen is that governments AND “fossil fuel” companies can charge people a lot more for energy so that paying for energy helps to dissolve the middle class. It doesn’t matter to someone who is rich whether they pay $1 or $25 for a gallon of gasoline, but it is enough to drive a middle class person into poverty.
That is what the global warming movement has always been about: creating a global tax to bury the middle class while also justifying the existence of a world government.
The Daily Stormer needs to do a big report on Maurice Strong and the foundations of the climate cult. Strong was the man who convinced Al Gore to start this hysteria; he literally invented the warming movement in the 1970s.
Everything is a gigantic hoax.
Global warming is the backbone hoax that ties together all other hoaxes.
The elite are not going to drive themselves back into the Stone Age. What they are going to do is force you into tiny apartments in high-rise buildings, where you will eat bugs and masturbate all day.
You will not breed, and you will die off, and then this elite class thinks it will become cyborgs and live forever and invade outer space.
