Writer Huw Hennessy, who I recently met in the Galapagos, has written an account on the Ecuadorian rainforest that I think all should read. In the Independent (What lies beneath the rainforest – Nature, Environment – The Independent) he discusses the Chevron disaster – and the ensuing $27 billion lawsuit that Chevron has refused to pay – and the Yasuni-ITT initiative that will keep oil companies out of Yasuni National Park. It’s a tragic story and everyone should pay attention.
