Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell is taking the road less traveled by supporting strong cuts to greenhouse gas emissions.
Shell signed a non-binding document, called the Trillion Tonne Communique, along with 70 other companies like Adidas and Unilever, which calls for ambitious timelines to bring global greenhouse gas emissions to "net zero" by the end of the century.
"We recognize that over the long term, net global emissions must trend towards zero. Both of our New Lens Scenarios show that this objective can be realized by the end of this century, but not without action by governments to stimulate changes in the energy system and considerable deployment of carbon capture and storage," a spokesman for Shell said in an email to The Hill.
The communique is sponsored by the Prince of Wales' Corporate Leaders Group, which brings business leaders from across the globe together to address climate change.
This communiqué sends a clear message from business at a critical time, when events in the Ukraine have refocused global attention on energy security, and just as the scientific consensus reminds us all of the imperative of collective action, said Eliot Whittington, deputy director of the Corporate Leaders Group, in a press release.
Companies that signed the document are endorsing action to limit overall greenhouse gas emission to less than 1 trillion tons of carbon since the start of the industrial era, a target the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released in a report last year.

If I were a tired multinational with zero initiative, I’d be very interested in making it harder for new competitors to get started. Allows me to continue achieving nothing for years to come.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
“This should go over well with the stockholders”
Astronomically expensive regulations also keep those pesky competitors off your playing field.
Follow the money. Basically a payoff to the enviro nuts. Just like the lib billionaires. Its an insurance policy.
Now go screw with our competitors. And make it harder for start ups.
Corporations are easy for the left to scare into their corner
Corporations are being BLACKMAILED into supporting “climate change”.
How? you ask.
Energy companies are dependent on about a dozen government entities for approval of every aspect of their on-going operations.
Defense companies are dependent on the government for about 90% of their business, and the gov’t tells them “Hey, we need about a BILLION DOLLARS worth of satellites to “prove” global warming”...Oh, and we need you to tell the public what wonderful work you’re doing to “SAVE A PLANET AT RISK”....
Its truly disgusting!
If you drive through Wilmington Delaware you see some DuPont buildings. One has a tower with a small wind turbine, another has a small array of solar collectors.
DuPont is green!...... they have the proof for all to see.
The same is true for many companies...... sign the paper, put up a display and photograph the hell out of it.
Remember when BP pushed for enviro cred with their “Beyond Petroleum” advertising campaign?
Fat lot of good that did them once they had that spill in the Gulf.
Who are these idiot companies??

The Prince of Wales??? Isn't that Charles, the man with the Dumbo ears?
