Here you go.It is already being pushed too fast. We have wind farms that generate more energy than can be used in remote areas with insufficient transmission line to get it to users who need it. Wind farms are far less efficient than advertised. Wind farms change the climate by adding resistance to the wind patters, changing them. Turbine blase wear out about three times faster than predicted, need costly maintenance, and are not recyclable. Wind farms kill endangered raptors. Solar is a better choice, bet neither wind or solar generate power 24/7/365, which means we need some kind of power storage. Wind and solar are only affordable because of subsidies, and adding enough power storage for peak usage, and night, will dramatically increase electricity prices to consumers.
The energy companies will enjoy making a profit off of renewables, just like they do with oil.
Yet you don't link it. As for Shell, I believe you are in error as them claiming it would have a dire outcome. Link please. I have read accounts of Shell and Exxon doing research in cooperation with government agencies, and I do not remember "dire predictions."
Benjamin Franta: Newly found documents from the 1980s show that fossil fuel companies privately predicted the global damage that would be caused by their products.
I urge you to watch this 3 part doc from PBS:
