    The oil giant Shell issued a stark warning of the catastrophic risks of climate change more than a quarter of century ago in a prescient 1991 film that has been rediscovered. However, since then the company has invested heavily in highly polluting oil reserves and helped lobby against climate action, leading to accusations that Shell knew the grave risks of global warming but did not act accordingly.

    Interesting.. .thanks.

    Substitute the tobacco companies of a few decades ago and their internal research about cancer risks, and it’s the same story all over again.

    Here's the full film.

    Also, if you appreciate documentaries, “Merchants of Doubt”, which outlines the above, is a great watch.

    I'm afraid Trump knows about global warming.

    The other side of the story is that north pole has petroleum. Ice is a barrier for more drilling.

    For someone who wants to make "America Great Again", melting is good.
