How reader engagement helped unearth the Shell tape
Ernst-Jan Pfauth

I remember Shell sounding the alarm on the impacts of burning fossil fuel when I was in high school in the 1970’s. I don’t think they called it climate change back then. They were one of the first to invest in solar. They sponsored the solar challenge. I remember Shell being the one of the first to talk about the energy needs of the “future”. 
But was anybody listening? Only those interested in technology… Over time, more have joined the conversation. With mountains of data, it’s amazing some lawmakers are still not listening… What’s even more amazing, we keep electing them to office.
