The UK Student Climate Network (UKSCN) recently protested against the Science Museum's announcement that a new gallery would be supported by a subsidiary of the Adani Group, the multinational business involved in coal extraction and coal-fired power stations.
The museum has also faced criticism for partnering with Shell to fund an exhibition on carbon capture and storage.
Russell-Cooke partner Pippa Garland comments in CityAM to express her surprise at the museum's choices of partnership and to predict further public scrutiny.
