Science Museum: drop Shell now!

Science Museum: drop Shell now!

Scrap your sponsorship deal with Shell - don’t let the dirty fossil fuel polluter use you as a means to clean up its image.

Why is this important?

It’s just been announced that Shell is sponsoring a major new climate exhibition at the Science Museum. This is completely irresponsible!

The museum should represent the very best of what we can achieve when we work together. It’s about discovery, facts, and creating a better world. It’s where children come to learn. We must not let Shell, which has spent decades devastating the planet for frontline communities across the world, anywhere near this exhibition.

The museum cannot let itself be used by a fossil fuel corporation - especially in the year the UK is hosting the COP26 climate talks and must show climate leadership. We demand they reverse their decision - now.

Reasons for signing

  • This is mind-numbing stupidity - clearly we now have a Non-Science Museum!
  • When our Govt levy a £1 per mile duty on ALL air tickets, and Shell steps in to pay the levy for all fliers THEN I'd support their sponsoring of a "Climate Exhibition"
  • Ive signed this please can u..x
