"This is the future: Peruvian gas by Peruvians, for Peruvians and for the development of Peru," Humala has said.

Peru and the Planet would be well served to develop Green Energy technologies, to keep Peruvians healthy and safe. I admire these tribes that straddle both worlds working for the lands they are the keepers of.

Noted, Thank you Cal.
