Oil chief: my fears for planet

Last summer, but better late than never.

The head of one of the world’s biggest oil companies [Lord Oxburgh, Chairman of Shell] has admitted that the threat of climate change makes him ‘really very worried for the planet’.

Another good quote from the article: “In June 2002 ExxonMobil’s chairman, Lee Raymond, said: ‘We in ExxonMobil do not believe that the science required to establish this linkage between fossil fuels and warming has been demonstrated.'” Kinda sounds like a Tobacco industry executive a year or two before the multi-billion dollar law suits.
