San Francisco Sentinel – GULF COAST OIL SPILL MAY PALE IN COMPARISON TO AMAZON WATCH COVER UP OF PETROECUADOR SPILLS IN RAINFOREST
Date: May 5, 2010
As the world watches the BP oil disaster along the Gulf Coast, a small but curious group of environmental activists, attorneys and government officials are involved in the largest cover-up of an oil disaster in world history.
For nearly 20 years, hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil have spilled into the Amazon River region of Ecuador. You might think it’s hard to hide that amount of oil. And, you’d be right. But the bad guys aren’t hiding the spill, they’re involved in a massive fraud to hide the party responsible for the spill.
