Grief at the fate of the people of Ecuador’s rainforest.
For nearly 30 years between 1964 and 1992, Texaco-now-Chevron yanked oil out of the ground, profited grandly, and left behind a horrendously shocking mess, violating all regulations of the time. It’s pretty clear they would have never made such a mess had they been extracting on US property. The mess contaminated the water, soil, and caused disease, misery and death for the local residents, who rightfully sued the company.
In 2011 it was determined that the Ecuadorian people were owed $18 billion. But now that ruling has been contested, of course, by Chevron, which claims the judge was bribed and the ruling was rigged.
