Thread: Shell & Palace

    Shell & Palace


    0 Not allowed!
    Shameful half page ad in the Times today (anyone lift?) shows a couple of pretty male models @ Selhurst, complete with fake scarfs, a virtually empty Arthur Waite and an uncanny Croydon's Burning supporting headline 'Let's light up our cities.....with a cleaner source of energy'..

      Exiled amongst the red and white, at the wrong end of the A/M27. (P)

      I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.........Time to die.

      So there is an advert for Shell using Selhurst as a backdrop?. I really dont see any issue with this, am sure if Shell had come to the Amex, Paul Barber would have welcomed the revenue with open arms

      Shell - we've made huge profits from polluting the planet - now we're gonna bang on about cleaner energy like we give a **** - we're already rich - when the planet goes to shit it won't be us suffering. Sort of thing.

      Also not cleaner, not clean. So basically "We're still polluting, just less now! Aren't we wonderful?"

      Shell have actually been loading their energy mix much more towards gas and away from oil. That said, there's a squeeze on gas prices at the moment so they'll start to see profits under pressure.

      Unfortunately, unless we change our behaviour we are going to need fossil fuels for a mighty long time, so investing in technologies that can produce clean energy using these sources is the best option. The bad news is that there ain't enough wind, solar or wave around to satisfy our greedy needs. We like to blame the dirty oil companies because we can't be bothered to modify our own behaviour. Human nature isn't it.

      Nevertheless, I shall be boycotting Shell for this shameful advert. Croydon!
      Either that wallpaper goes or I do

      Is this because Sellhurst is just a Shell of a Stadium
