he Science Museum has been accused of being “staggeringly out-of-step” after it revealed Shell is a “major sponsor” of its climate exhibition.

The Our Future Planet exhibition is due to open on 19 May, and will focus on carbon capture and storage.

“Carbon dioxide is essential to life on Earth but over the last century industrialisation has increased levels of it in the atmosphere with devastating impacts,” the description for the exhibit reads.
