Shell produced a report on global warming called ‘Climate of Concern’ in 1986. In 1991 they made the video documentary for the public. It warned that trends in global temperatures raised serious risks of famines, floods and climate refugees.
But in the quarter century since, Shell has continued to invest heavily in fossil fuels.
Already in the eighties, Shell understood that climate change would affect its own operations. In 1989, the organization changed the design of a drilling platform in order to take account of extreme weather and rising sea levels.
The Netherlands is to host a new Global Centre of Excellence on Climate Adaption (GCEA), set up by the Dutch and Japanese governments in collaboration with the UN environment programme (UNEP).
The centre will advise countries, businesses and organizations on how to adapt their practices to comply with the Paris climate change agreement, which comprises measures designed to keep the global temperature increase below 2 degrees.
Last year it was ratified by 193 countries.

Flared gas is a bigger problem than thought. Contrary to what has been agreed with the oil industry, worldwide the industry flared not less, but more gas.
In 2015, about 147 billion cubic meters which is a CO2 footprint of around 350 million tonnes!
The world bank published the figures in a report. Globally, over 16,000 oil wells are flaring gas.
The amount of wasted gas corresponds to the gas consumption of the UK, Germany and Switzerland together. If the gas was burned in a power plant, it could supply the whole of Africa with electricity. Read More
A study by Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd. shows that a 100% renewables is the cheapest electricity production option.
The transition can be achieved with very few energy storages and could be realized by 2030. Read More
