Dutch court orders Shell to reduce its emissions

A civil court in the Netherlands has ruled in a landmark case that the oil giant Shell must reduce its emissions. Shell must cut its CO2 emissions by 45% before 2030 as compared to 2019 levels, the court ruled. The Shell group is now responsible for its own CO2 emissions and also its suppliers. It is the first time a company has been legally obliged to align its policies with the Paris agreement.

Will they hold battery and electric car manufacturers to the same standards? Currently electric car technology and use is responsible for more environmental impact than a comparable number of gas/diesel vehicles. When should we expect the new tech to be more environmentally friendly than the past generation of tech?

Shell, don’t appeal the decision, just move. Find a nice third world country that will appreciate the money you would bring to their economy and move. Shut down those 17,000 high paying jobs you have in the Netherlands, those people will all find work somewhere else probably doing something carbon friendly. They ( the government and people.) don’t want you, they just want you to pay and pay and pay. They will curse you into bankruptcy and when your gone they will curse you for not being there to give them more money so save yourself the pain and leave now.

Good, one of the most profitable companies in the world can afford to invest in carbon capture and diversifying into offshore wind.

Why is this news? "In other news the monarchy in the netherlands told their own private state owned oil company to cut emissions." You think the king and queen just shook hands? Like seriously why is this news?
