The potential to make a lot of money + corruption go hand-in-hand. Big oil doesn't have a conscience. I wouldn't expect anything less...

Greed will destroy this planet.

"Only after the last tree has been cut down, only after the last river has been poisoned, only after the last fish has been caught, only then will you find that money cannot be eaten."

I sometimes despair about the amount of stupidity in the world. We have Global warming that will destroy us, but now we are really scrambling for oil and the devil may take the consequences. Corruption is just the icing on the cake.

We sadly take all of this corruption for granted. We should be horrified and our elected officials should be as well.

Oil companies have the money to buy any politician, judge or head of government agency they want to do their bidding.

And to add to the frackin' ,friggin' ,well testin'frustration: "There is no obligation on companies to declare what they pay foreign governments for access to oil and governments donít have to make the contracts public."
