IN RESPONSE TO the oil and gas giant Shell reporting record annual profits of £32.2 billion, the international development agency Christian Aid has called on polluters to “pay up to repair the damage they have caused to the climate.”
Pete Moorey, Head of Campaigns and UK Advocacy at Christian Aid, said: “Across the globe, it is the people who have done the least to cause the climate crisis who are facing climate shocks, damage to harvests, to homes, and worse.
“It is sickening to see companies like Shell recording record profits yet failing to be held to account for the damage they are causing the planet.
“It is time the UK Government forced polluters to pay up to repair the damage they have caused to the climate.”
