”There are always oil spills in the Amazon. Because the criminal predator oil companies care nothing for the environment, the health of the people or even the genocide of whole indigenous nations. this has been going on for 50 years, the biggest crimes being the 1000′s of spills and abandoned chemical lakes created over 30 years by Texaco (now Chevron) which even today uses it’s massive wealth to defend its impunity. Today while science proves that 60% of fossil fuels will have to stay in the ground to save us from catastrophic climate change, the race to extract continues worse than ever, with the connivance of ourselves, the 1st world fossil fuel junkies!
Amazon oil spill has killed tons of fish, sickened native people

Community leaders called the emergency number for Petroperu, the state-run operator of the 845-kilometer pipeline that pumps crude oil from the Amazon over the Andes Mountains to a port on Peru’s northern coast Continue reading
Indigenous Vow: We’ll Be ‘Dead Or In Prison Before We Allow’ Keystone Pipeline
On February 27, Oglala Lakota and American Indian Movement activists joined in a four-directions walk to commemorate Liberation Day, an event to mark the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. As they do each year, four groups gather to the north, south, east and west and then walk eight miles until converging on top of Wounded Knee, where they honor the fallen warriors and the tribe’s rich history of resistance……
…………The Oglala Lakota Nation is actively fighting the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. This 1,700-mile pipeline, which would carry 830,000 barrels of crude oil each day from western Canada through South Dakota en route to Texas. At two points it would even intersect with a pipeline that serves as a main water source for the Sioux Nation, affecting all of the Pine Ridge reservation as well as the nearby Rosebud reservation.

Typhoons are heat engines.. there’s a direct link between severity and sea temperatures.. there’s also a direct link between sea temperatures and levels of CO2 released into the atmosphere. Typhoons are normal, super typhoons of unprecedented power are fueled by Climate Change. Responsible for the deaths of at least 5000 innocent people, and the horrific destruction caused by Haiyan/Yolanda are the companies who get over $500 billion a year subsidies on top of their profits to extract and burn fossil fuels when cheap renewables are available.
