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 to show "how Arctic energy production will transform the world." The results: brutal and hilarious. "Here at Shell, we’re committed to online social media...It’s the fuel that lubricates the engines of internet communication."
"After nine years of promises without proper action and decades of pollution, the people of Ogoniland are not only sick of dirty drinking water, oil-contaminated fish and toxic fumes. They are sick of waiting for justice, they are dying by the day."
"At shareholders meetings like this, money is the only priority—even if it is...
"It's about getting them to pay for the damages they knowingly created."
