Re: Chevron refuses to pay due compensations for contaminating the Amazon in Ecuador

Of course the video takes it a bit far saying the Amazon is the lung of the planet. As if we should be mad about something like this just because it's the Amazon forest. This should cause indignation doesn't matter where it takes place or who's affected.

Well, it is not a clean source of energy, it wastes volumes of drinkable water, pollutes the river system, it kills wildlife, destroys ecosystems, produces tons of greenhouse gas and the industry does not have to return the land as it was...

NID, all oil companies are bad one way or another but Chevron and BP just win hands down when it comes to absolute douchebaggery, their social responsibility programs are massive smoke curtains and they never fully develop those anyway.

the main accusation towards chevron over this isn't the environmental damage per se but the damage caused to the peoples who lived around the contaminated areas. thousands of indigenous peoples have been affected either by an increase in cancer rates, birth defects, sickened farm animals crucial for their survival, displacement, etc.

to compare that with what happens in a rich country like canada (which i agree is bad too) is just silly.

it's the fault of the gvts as well who allow these bastards in.

big companies like chevron have 0 respect for human rights, much less the environment. they'd contaminate the entire country if they thought they could make a profit from it. absolute scum.
