As a company we have an absolute commitment to the principle of action on climate change. We're very proud of our values But as one of the major contributors to co2 emissions and as we begin to contend with the real world effects of climate change we have to prepare ourselves for the next step in addressing our corporate responsibilities in this area While the steps on the surface seem to be in opposition to our self-interest the reality is however that they are actually in opposition to our self interest. So we recognize what we call "The Gap" "The Gap" is the problem of simultaneously holding two contradictory positions. On one hand to act on our responsibility to humanity but on the other hand to deliver on our commitment to superior value for our shareholders we needed to take a leap of faith An intuitive step outside the limitations a science-based argument. I'm proud to announce the company's new policy of fuck you Fuck you is more than a policy. It's a philosophy where we are able straddle the dichotomy between what we know is true and how we can benefit by ignoring that truth Fuck you means we can be passionate about our values, but not act on them our present-day financial burden away from us and transforms it into a chronic, economic, social, cultural and political crisis the future generations the genius of this however is that we transferred away from us It ensures solid returns to our shareholders. by killing their grandchildren With this policy we delay action and leverage the gap and are able to maintain our role as a global leader in destroying the planet ultimately this is a reflection of the values of our shareholders. Everyday Australians have chosen to invest $20 billion dollars into the company but we prefer to think of it as 20 billion fuck you's to the Australians of tomorrow. There will come a day when my moral choices will no longer be beholden to the shareholders and a wave of profound regret and a sorrow will engulf me as I realize with painful clarity the enormity of the damage I have perpetrated upon humanity and even if I plead with whoever has succeeded my role in the company to stop putting co2 in the air for the sake of my daughter's grandchildren he or she can turn to me and simply respond with... fuck you and that legacy really does make me very proud
