Chevron operated an oil concession in Ecuador's rainforest from 1964 to 1992. The company admits during this time that it dumped 18 billion gallons of toxic waste in an area that was home to six indigenous nationalities -- one of which is now extinct. For the last four decades, Chevron has treated Ecuador as an image problem to be managed rather than a humanitarian crisis that compels a compassionate and real solution. When one connects Chevron's dots in Ecuador, what emerges is a coordinated series of frauds marked by misinformation designed to deceive courts, the public, shareholders, and the financial markets. The purpose of this scheme is to avoid paying the cost of a real cleanup, and it matters not that vulnerable rainforest peoples -- among them thousands of children -- have died or suffer grievously as a result.
