Shell A Hard Protective Outer Case For Humanity? If So Perfect! If Not? Perhaps We Should Bombard With Ethical Shells.

Addressing the Energy-Water-Food challenge
Hosted by Dick Benschop, President Director Shell Netherlands and Jeremy Bentham, Vice President Global Business Environment 27th September 2012 

By 2050, the population of Earth is likely to reach nine billion. As living standards improve, many will also rise out of poverty and live longer, healthier lives.
Yet the world’s growing prosperity will also put stresses on energy, water and food supplies - all of which are closely intertwined. Water is needed for almost all forms of energy production; energy is needed to treat and transport water; and both water and energy are needed to grow food.
In the coming decades, these vital resources will come under even greater pressure. According to the United Nations, by 2030 the world’s growing population and increased prosperity will push up global demand for water by 30%, energy by 40% and food by 50%.
Scott Northcott
Scott Northcott Visionary & Founder of The QU Consortium &The ARK Foundation, Buckinghamshire, England. Good morning Dick Benschop & Jeremy Bentham, plus all colleagues at Shell. My question is what is Shell doing verses other corporation to exceed & excel in attaining or working towards equilibrium & balance to safe guard our depleting natural finite resources? 
Dick benschop
Hi Scott, thanks for your question. Through partnerships with environmental experts and by using new technologies we are finding ways to help reduce the impact of our operations on the environment. We plan to spend $100 billion from 2011-2014 to support new energy production. We are entering more challenging environments to unlock new resources and boosting production from existing fields so that the rate of depletion might not be that once thought. At the same time, we are using new technologies and an innovative approach to limit our impact on the environment and find effective ways to engage with communities near to our operations. Considering our impact on the environment runs through everything we do.
New Lens Scenarios: A shift in perspective for a world in transition
Hosted by Jeremy Bentham 3rd June 2013
Shell's webchat, led by Jeremy Bentham and an expert panel, took questions from participants across the globe on the recent thinking from Shell's New Lens Scenarios. It explored what the world might look like over the 21st century and how the energy mix could develop given various social, economic and political trends.
Scott Northcott
From a Public Relations perspective as one of the largest petroleum organisations in the world it would be prudent, cautious & conservative, plus Eco-Ethical kudos to execute, perform & deliver a balanced equilibrium in energy terms i.e. carbon & clean 50/50 mix. Obviously there are associated benefits over & above environmental attributes, such as economic and financial. Whilst QU & ARK hasn't shared our allocentric “Community Minded” concept, vision & dreams for a balanced world & equilibrium I can categorically assure you there is not an organisation in the world doing what we are about to embark on. Recent world events have proved that unless social, economic and political trends are met unrest & dissatisfaction, plus turmoil will prevail. Therefore we all need to be Eco-Socially Responsible in meeting consumers expectation beyond a mere & pure monetary perspective.
Charles Kalshoven

Thanks Scott, what comes out of the scenario work is the need for collaboration between governments, NGOs, businesses to cope with resource stresses related to energy, water and food. The demand for water energy and food could rise by 40-50% in 2030. Both scenarios have their own challenges though.
Scott Northcott

Views opinions & perspectives on micro energy generation verses macro?

Richard Moore

Thanks for your question Scott. In Mountains policies tend to drive macro responses whereas in Oceans market forces dominate, so we may see more micro solutions emerge, particularly as energy prices are expected to be higher, incentivizing consumers.

Scott Northcott

Thank you Richard Moore for your reply QU & ARK have identified, qualified, quantified, plus rectified, whilst constantly verifying micro alternative energy sources harnessing Earth, Water, Air, and Fire that are cost effective but more to the point efficient.
Scott Northcott

It is fair to say that the protection of green belts are as vitally important to Shell as they are to the rest of humanity. Whilst we cannot bulldozer the current inefficient built environment. We can all be responsible for the evolution of the next built environment i.e. "The Paradigm Shift."

Esther Bongenaar

Hi Scott, I would say it is important to Shell too. We analyse the differences between compact and urban-sprawl cities. A supplement publication on compact cities will be published in some time, in which we will share our findings.

Scott Northcott

Hi Esther "Restraint" is the change-maker & those that attain plus achieve this will exceed not only their employees expectations but achieve consumer kudos. Monty Python Holy Grail of the previous built environment, we have some content scheduled that will engage, entertain & educate people in the necessary meaningful changes & vital differences that need to occur!

Scott Northcott

Thank you Shell Dialogues Team for the invite, exchanges, plus collaboration. QU4ARK Queue You For Architecture Responsibility Kudos. We all need to be engineers for a more sustainable future! This is a step towards that process! Good day, week & month all...

Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"

Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.

Should Donald Trump have been given the go-ahead for his golf resort?

Local Heroes

The spirit, camaraderie, unity of the residents at Menie has not truly or honestly been captured. We intend to signify their courage and conviction in the face of belligerent and arrogant tyranny.

The World Need a Jolly Green Giant

We don't have a "Jolly Green Giant" Corporation but we do need an Eco Environmentally Sustainable Iconic Brand, with ethical values and principles via it's environmental stance.

Angels Of The North "Scottish Angels & Saints"

Calling Scottish Patriots romantic & passionate about Eco values. Creative enlightenment revived, vigor & valor of our spirit, culture, heritage and history, renew innovation. Takes one icon to act.

Thinking out of the box

Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

Your Country Needs You

Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country. Or go further what can you do for the people of this World? "Be a Social Responsible Entrepreneur" Action!

I Stand For Goodness What Do You Stand For?

We all have the ability to stand up and be counted. Lift our heads above the parapet, make a difference, be that change. Especially unique and innovative ethical ideas for the better of all.

Other Local Heroes

Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
