Interviewing Van Der Veer

Here’s a video (with an accompanying article) of George Monbiot interviewing Jeroen van der Veer, CEO of Shell. It’s worth watching, and the article is thoughtful as well. The key point, it seems to me, is that, as Monbiot says:
Saving the biosphere, in other words, cannot be left to goodwill and greenwash: the humanity of pleasant men like Van der Veer will always be swept aside by the imperative to maximise returns. Good people in these circumstances do terrible things. 

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
