Quote from the copywritten article at the site:
"Amazon Watch said the deal would violate China's own new investment guidelines, issued jointly by the ministries of commerce and environmental protection last month. The third clause of the guidelines says Chinese enterprises should "promote harmonious development of local economy, environment and community" while operating abroad."

Some days it's just too over whelming to consider the massively destructive power of chasing the profit motive.

Many of our own indigenous people held a tribal belief that each decision must consider the affect on the next seven generations. We don't even consider own generation, much less our children and their children. Profit today just might be the roots of horrific poverty for tomorrow.

Those poor people, they are being screwed out of their land by the rich bastards. Money grubbers, that's all so many think about.

Terrible, we should protect forests and reduce fossil fuel extraction.
