Great report, sad though that as usual nature is duped bt human greed.
I dug a bit into the money-trail.
Lots of corporations indeed stacked onto each other,
Like you said Global infrastructure partners made a 1,5 billion dollar deal with El Paso corp.
One of the partners from GIP is East India Petro.
Then we get this from 2007, Zeus Infra Management bought over 70% of East India Petro
Private equity firm Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) on Wednesday said it has acquired 74 per cent stake in East India Petroleum Ltd (EIPL). The stake was bought by GIP through a joint venture with Zeus Inframanagement, a company release said here. GIP holds 80 per cent equity stake in the JV with Zeus Inframanagement
Zeus Inframanagement is owned again by GIP at 80%
this from 2008
Another similar deal was when Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), an infrastructure sector focused private equity firm backed by Credit Suisse and General Electric, formed a joint venture with Delhi-based private equity fund Zeus Inframanagement to pick up a 74% stake in Vizag-based East India Petroleum Ltd.
BP en GE work together, so the circle is round again.
BP and GE to make new hydrogen energy
But what I found more interesting personally was that one of the major holders (2nd) of El Paso Corporation is again State Street Corporation, that bank has more tentacles than Goldman Sachs.
State Street Corporation is also the main holder of Exxon, Chrevron, BP and Halliburton
I hope this information helps a bit, it was about all I could find.
"The Bureau of Land Management’s top priority is to ensure the health of the public lands so that the species depending on them – including the nation’s wild horses and burros – can thrive. To achieve that end, the BLM’s wild horse and burro program must be put on a sustainable course that benefits the animals, the land, and the American taxpayer."
Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has proposed a national solution to restore the health of America’s wild horse herds and the rangelands that support them by creating a cost-efficient, sustainable management program that includes the possible creation of wild horse preserves on the productive grasslands of the Midwest and East. The initiative has received wide support from local and state agencies as well as advocacy groups.
The BLM estimates that more than 38,000 wild horses and burros are roaming on BLM-managed rangelands in 10 Western states. Wild horse herd sizes can double about every four years. As a result, the agency must remove thousands of animals from the range each year to control population. New research on and stepped-up application of fertility-control measures will help bring herd sizes down to appropriate management levels.

Let's get something straight... The ISSUE isn't about Britain. It's about US Government Employees cozying up to Big Oil and Big Agriculture.
Everybody knows BP is a multinational oil company like every other major is.
It IS about U.S. Government employees who are selling our heritage to the provider of the best gifts/graft.
These government employees need to be fired and brought up on charges where it's proven they failed us for personal benefit. The Public Lands policy needs to reviewed and reformed to make sure the tax payers are getting a fair deal for the exploitation of our resources and that the Federal Laws enacted to protect the wildlife are being obeyed/enforced.
WRT "the range can't support the Mustangs"...
the horses are being denied the resources on their land via fences that block them from grazing and water in favor of cattle and sheep who reside within the fences where the water and grass grows. The range has been stolen from the Mustangs.
The BLM has determined that the estimated current free-roaming
population of wild horses and burros exceeds the AML that can exist in balance with other public rangeland resources and uses by about 10,300 animals.
To help bring herd populations into balance with rangeland conditions and the AML, the BLM gathers wild horses and burros from public rangelands each year and offers them for adoption or sale to individuals and groups willing and able to provide humane, long-term care. Further, the Secretary of the Interior recently announced a proposal for a new wild horse and burro management program whereby the BLM would establish new wild horse preserves across the nation, especially on the productive grasslands
of the Midwest and East, and begin applying new strategies aimed at slowing population growth rates on Western public rangelands
As with livestock grazing impacts on restored construction areas, wild horses and burros could be attracted to the new plant growth in reclaimed areas, and their grazing could affect the seeding success and recovery of right-of-way vegetation. Ruby has committed to working with the BLM to limit wild horse and burro grazing along the reclaimed right-of-way for 3 years following construction by providing water sources away from the right-of-way, including low-palatable plant species (such as sagebrush) in
the seed mix, placing temporary fencing, and/or reducing wild horse and burro populations in appropriate HMAs. Any efforts to reduce wild horse and burro populations would be done in consultation with the BLM and in accordance with BLM policies.
Northern CA Twin Peaks herd is targeted for a destructive multi-million dollar summer roundup
The Cloud Foundation opposes and is calling for a stop to the proposed roundup of over 2,500 mustangs and burros from one of the last viable herds in California. To avoid conflicting with deer hunting season, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) plans to unleash contracted helicopters in the August heat to round up 2,500 mustangs and burros, including their young foals, from the Twin Peaks Range near Susanville. Vastly outnumbered by thousands of corporate-owned destructive livestock thecloudfoundation.wordpress.com... the public’s wild horses and burros are the BLM’s scapegoats for damage on the range. Over 2,000 are now slated for removal despite healthy range conditions and an outdated census.
Anne Novak, with the Cloud Foundation, is an East Bay resident and fifth generation Californian. She visited the HMA outside of Susanville last week and recounts, “We were looking forward to seeing a lot of wild horses on the range after hearing the BLM’s reasons for the proposed roundup but we didn’t see any horses at all. We found three pronghorn and a small group of burros after covering the range all day on safari.”
The Twin Peaks wild horse and burro herd area is larger than the state of Rhode Island at 1,250 square miles. Despite the vast landscape, BLM wants to slash the herd from what they claim are 2,585 horses and burros to only 450 wild horses and 74 burros.
ELKO, Nevada – Over 1,400 federally-protected wild mustangs, including the very young, are to be startled from their pastoral fields, in their family groups, and attacked by BLM helicopters that will drive them running in the desert heat until some of them drop dead from heat exhaustion or their hoofs fall off. They will start off well fed and watered as opposed to what the BLM has told the public. And those that make it will end up broken away from their family groups, held in pens on private property where public watchdogs cannot see their death and destruction and suffering. There they will suffer even more injustice as medical problems mount.
The roundup takes place in the Tuscarora area of Elko County Nevada during the hottest month of the year. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is violating their own set-protocol for waiting six weeks after the main foaling season, so that young foals can escape the inherent danger of a high-heat summer roundup. The BLM will dispatch privately contracted choppers to run the Tuscarora mustangs over miles of rugged terrain in a taxpayer-funded roundup expected to last three weeks and result in the removal of some 1,100 mustangs. Only last month, Oregon BLM wild horse managers postponed a planned roundup that would have started the day after foaling season – opting to begin instead in mid-August for the horses’ safety.
