A senior consultant at Shell has resigned, condemning the fossil fuel giant for expanding its oil and gas production despite mounting scientific warnings that this would lead to a climate catastrophe. Caroline Dennett worked for the company for 11 years and was based in the United Kingdom. She shared news of her resignation in a video posted on LinkedIn.
Caroline Dennett: “Today I’m quitting because of Shell’s double-talk on climate. Shell’s stated safety ambition is to 'do no harm.' It’s called 'Goal Zero.' And it sounds honorable, but they are completely failing on it. They know that continued oil and gas extraction causes extreme harms to our climate, to our environment and to people. And whatever they say, Shell is simply not winding down on fossil fuels. They’re expanding, with new exploration and extraction projects, against the clear warnings from scientists and dismissing the huge risks from climate change. And I just can’t be a part of this anymore.”
