Chevron Texaco and why we need green technology
Yesterday I met up with Nicola Peel. Nicola speaks all over the world about living a sustainable life, as well as advising businesses about ways to improve their green credentials.
Nicola told me about Chevron Texaco and the environmental disaster that is a result of them drilling for oil in Ecuador.
I couldn’t remember hearing about it before, so I promised to read her article about it. Which I did and which is here: http://www.eyesofgaia.com/pb/wp_07b2599b/wp_07b2599b.html
It paints a really grim picture of greed, carelessness and a complete disregard for the environmental impact the oil industry can (and still does) have.
Now, not being one to take anything on face value, a quick Google search turned up lots of information about the ongoing disaster and law suit. Here’s one such article I found on the subject.
It would be misleading to say that technology got us into this situation, because it is the actions of people that determine how we use technology. Now as well as questions about accountability, we need to ask, “How can technology get us out of this mess?”
