It goes hand in hand with our polluting of the world with wars for multi-national corporate interests and shirking accountability to the toll in human lives and suffering. Accountability is only for individuals, one without much money. Calling them filthy for having become polluted and putting up resistance..

I see that Chevron certainly is deserving, but I am not sure they are that obvious a choice as there are so may tough competitors out there

Chevron got my vote. Not just for filth and pollution but for displacing and causing deaths of so many indigenous tribes, then suing them for having the gall to complain. And they have found a very symopathetic judge, who has authorized them to read without warrant all the emails of anyone who ever signed a petition against them. Yes, that includes me.

Thanks everyone. It is hard to choose, because there are so many reprehensible contenders. Chevron did do some incredible damage to Indigenous lands, and the lawsuits against them for complaining about that are beyond belief.

I realize this is late information but I just received it -

"José Tendetza -- an Ecuadorian indigenous leader and environmental activist -- was found dead on December 2.

José was set to arrive at the UN Climate Change Conference in Peru on December 3 to raise concerns about a mining project in his community. Tragically, he never arrived.

Instead, a group of mine workers found his body tied up with a rope and floating in Ecuador's Zamora River. There were signs he had been tortured."

The fact that this happened in Ecuador points directly to Chevron, which has staked out Ecuador as its "personal" territory.

There is a petition to request an investigation:

Perhaps, Chevron should be our next target.
