Shell Has NOT Learned From Its Mistakes

Haley Rabic

Shell claims to have learned from its mistakes. Not quite.

Have you heard about when Shell tried to drill in the Arctic three years ago?

Shell’s fleet entered the Arctic for exploratory drilling in the summer of 2012 with two rigs, the Kulluk and Noble Discoverer, both owned by Noble Drilling. Challenges started early for the Noble Discoverer — in early July the rig might have ran aground during a storm, but the Coast Guard cleared the ship to move on.

Thank you, Ms. Rabic for spelling it out and making it clear that it is SHELL that has not learned from ITS mistakes rather than falling back on the irresponsible use of one all-encompassing collective WE frame, the favored PR collateral used by far too many writers and would-be serious journalists... and assorted pro-industry paid shills.

I disagree that Shell has not learned from its Arctic misadventures.

It has learned that, no matter what it does, it can count on the US government to bail it out.

But wait! Look at Rabic's final paragraph.

Shell is on the path to make many of the same mistakes as it made in 2012. And with Obama’s own administration citing that there is a 75 percent chance of an oil spill in the Arctic, WE can’t afford such insecurity. (emphasis mine)

In fact, Rabic DOES fall "back on the irresponsible use of the all-encompassing collective WE frame"!!!

Oh, the horror (not to mention the hemhorroid-producing embarrassment)!
