On Monday, Shell put out a Twitter poll asking what YOU are willing to change to help reduce emissions: 

As one could imagine, this tweet did not go over very well. According to Green Matters, out of Shell’s 551,000 Twitter followers, only 199 people participated in the poll.

People have spoken out, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying what they will do is hold oil giants accountable. 

“I’m willing to hold you accountable for lying about climate change for 30 years when you secretly knew the entire time that fossil fuels emissions would destroy our planet,” she said. 

“The audacity of Shell asking YOU what YOU’RE willing to do to reduce emissions. They’re showing you RIGHT HERE how the suggestion that individual choices—not systems—are a main driver of climate change is a fossil fuel talking point,” she added.

Many others have also drew outrage and outspokenness among climate advocates and activists:
