an interview in today's Guardian Life section, Ron Oxburgh, chairman of
Shell, says 'No one can be comfortable at the prospect of continuing to
pump out the amounts of carbon dioxide that we are pumping out at
present ... with consequences that we really can't predict but are
probably not good.'
His words follow those of the
government's chief science adviser, David King, who said in January
that climate change posed a bigger threat to the world than terrorism.
'You can't slip a piece of paper between David King and me on this position,' said Lord Oxburgh.
Leading oil execs can see it. Leading insurance execs can see it.
Leading chemical company execs can see it.That's big business, so you'd
think leading Republican execs could see it too. Apparently not.
