Pecunia non olet old boy

Why is the Science Museum still being contaminated by Shell’s dirty money?
George Monbiot

George went to a decent enough school didn’t he? He should know this?

  1. Sorry, I won’t read Guardian articles. Contaminated by the founder’s links to the cotton trade.

  2. Went to a decent school? So, another highly educated moron then.
    When he and his ilk stop using fossil fuels and their derivatives completely I might listen to them (actually, no I won’t).

  3. Presumably Moonbat uses the state services funded by Shell’s dirty tax money?

    Money might not stink, but sometimes it comes with obligations, as we see in the CCP-funded UK universities.

  4. I’ve been a hero. I actually looked at the Guardian article.

    I did notice that the Extinction Rebels pictured at the top seemed to have signs, clothing and equipment made of horrid plastic.

    I spoke to some who were blocking a road junction in Leeds a couple of years ago. They couldn’t explain why they were using propane to grill their vegan street food (for sale) and not organically sourced, free range charcoal

  6. Dear Mr Worstall

    Ought that not to read: “… by Shell’s customers’ dirty money?”?

    Those beastly folk who drive cars, fly away on holiday (perhaps again, one day, soon) and heat their homes with Shell products.

    Unless they walk or cycle, the Science Museum’s customers will have to use some oil product to get there. And the Science Museum will have to use some form of energy to heat and light the place and oil the escalators and lifts. Might not be a Shell product, so how much cleaner is BP’s by Mr Monbiot’s reckoning?

    Is Mr Monbiot’s entire existence fuelled by his outgassings from beans on toast?
