Greenpeace Responds to Shell Leaving ALEC Over Climate Change Denial

WASHINGTON -

Today, Shell announced that it has left the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) over its climate change denial.

In response to the news that Shell has left ALEC, Greenpeace spokesperson Travis Nichols said:

“It’s a bad sign for the climate denial movement that ALEC’s rhetoric is too extreme even for a cynical exploitative corporation like Shell. It’s also clear that Shell’s ill-conceived Arctic drilling plan is causing a PR panic, but this move won’t fix Shell’s bad name. It’s completely absurd for Shell to claim it wants to confront climate change while engaging in this destructive plan to drill in the Alaskan Arctic.”
