Shell (Sort Of): Tomorrow Is Yesterday, Accelerated, and You Can't Afford to Visit Pristine Wilderness Anyway

Amidst Shell's recent spate of closely-averted disasters, Greenpeace and The Yes Men are having a fine old time with a new mock Arctic Ready ad campaign in which Shell asks "Arctic-enthused drivers" to add their own slogans to images of nature, thereby showing "how Arctic energy production will transform the world." Their results: brutal and hilarious.

"Here at Shell, we’re committed to online social media. After all, it’s the fuel that lubricates the engines of internet communication."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
