Is Chevron scared of "Crude" the movie?


uk.reuters.com

One of the stars of "Crude," a documentary about a $27 billion environmental lawsuit filed against the company on behalf of residents of Ecuador's Amazon, certainly thinks so. A spokesman for Chevron (CVX.N) vehemently denies it.

The film's New York opening on Wednesday is the latest twist in a class action case that began 16 years ago, which argues that Chevron should compensate some 30,000 Ecuadoreans who live near waste pits left by oil exploration going back to the 1960s.

Sounds like an interesting movie, here's a little more about it:

It really makes me sick how these kind of companies treat the world, and especially in counties where it's really difficult for the people to do anything about it.

For those of you who don't care about other counties, they are poisoning the US too, for example



Chevron’s activities in Richmond, California have been the subject of ongoing controversy. The project generated over 11 million pounds of toxic materials and caused more than 304 accidents.[15] Chevron’s Richmond refineries paid $540,000 in 1998 for illegally bypassing waste water treatments and failing to notify the public about toxic releases

I don't even know what we can do about these kind of companies, we need to get onto some other types of energy like solar and wind, but they either seem depressingly far from being ready for use, or very slow to get going due to resistance to move from the status quo.
