    Chevron's Dump of Eighteen Billion Gallons of Poison

    Into the Amazon rainforest water basin in Ecuador:
    During its operation in Ecuador Amazon until 1992, Texaco [now called Chevron] spilled 17 million gallons [around 64 mln litres] of oil from its pipeline and dumped 18 billion (!) gallons [around 68 bln litres] of toxic waste directly into the rainforest, and thus contaminating 1,700 square miles [around 442,000 ha] of pristine Ecuador rainforest with extremely dangerous chemicals.
    Ecuador Rainforest And Its Devastation by Oil Production

    American "philosophy" spilling into pristine tropical rivers, poisoning entire ecosystems, this is the corporate global school of absoo=lute domination philosophy.

    Thank you, Almighty Great God Unregulated Capitalism!

    I seem to remember that the Soviet union had a less than exemplary record in these matters. I believe they were not capitalists too

    "Communist" China sure is a major mover in the world of Capitalism. It has amassed so much capital that the U.S. has to borrow money from China now.

    It is debatable as to whether or not Russian and China were truly "communist." I don't think that any nation has ever practices "true communism."

    The truest communists are probably those small groups of Christians who gather in Hutterite or Mennonite or Amish communities.
