The Amazonian rainforest
Frrom the department of perfect timing: as I was finishing the previous post, I received an email alert from an organization called Amazon Watch. They have a video that is an "open letter" (so to speak) to the citizens of the United States of America from 30,000 Ecuadoran plaintiffs in the recently decided Chevron v. Aguinda environmental lawsuit. Chevron lost the suit but has sworn that they will never pay to remediate the region they have contaminated beyond habitability. Please take a look at the not-quite-three-minute video and sign the letter if you are so moved, as I hope you will be.
