This is The Worlds dirtyest Oil far worse then the Alberta Oil Sands will ever become!!!
Message from Ecuador to Chevron CEO John Watson
A heartfelt message from the Amazon rainforest communities in Ecuador to new Chevron CEO John Watson: "We don't want to continue dying of cancer." This video message appeals for Chevron to clean up its massive contamination of the Ecuadorian Amazon that has devastated the environment and continues to cause widespread cancer, birth defects, and other ailments.
Chevron operated an oil concession in Ecuador's rainforest from 1964 to 1992. The company admits during this time that it dumped 18 billion gallons of toxic waste in an area that was home to six indigenous nationalities -- one of which is now extinct. For the last four decades, Chevron has treated Ecuador as an image problem to be managed rather than a humanitarian crisis that compels a compassionate and real solution.
When one connects Chevron's dots in Ecuador, what emerges is a coordinated series of frauds marked by misinformation designed to deceive courts, the public, shareholders, and the financial markets. The purpose of this scheme is to avoid paying the cost of a real cleanup, and it matters not that vulnerable rainforest peoples -- among them thousands of children -- have died or suffer grievously as a result.
