Not sure if you were referring to me or not but for the record, while i have not given actual $$$ to Nigeria or Sudan, i have been actively involved in local action groups trying to raise awareness over some of the horrendous situations occurring on the continent in recent times.
I believe the idea behind the OP was to show that the oil spill in the Gulf isn't as bad as it seems, and to show how subjective our view on reality is.

On topic - Yes oil spills are a big issue right now for the ATS populace, weather you think so or not. I believe the idea behind the OP was to show that the oil spill in the Gulf isn't as bad as it seems, and to show how subjective our view on reality is.

The point I took away from the OP was not that the Gulf spill wasnt bad, it was more that Nigeria has been suffering at the hands of big oil for a long time, and Americans and Europeans are largely unaware or uncaring about it.

Resources for the greater good yes. We are on board with that. We want thier oil. Homestly though no one gives a crap about them as human beings or about keeping thier land clean of contaminents.
Am I lieing here or what?
Deniers come forth and dispute me.
