I am not surprised to hear that Chevron told a whole bunch of lies to Columbia Journalism Review’s Martha Hamilton about the well site Shushufindi 38, featured on 60 Minutes last year. What amazes me is that it took Chevron a whole year to respond to the CBS program.
Chevron is trying to blame Ecuadorian oil company Petroecuador, even though the court documents show that Texaco was the only operator at this site.
Chevron also claims there is no contamination at Shushufindi 38, while the test show that levels of toxins are over 400 higher than legal limits in Ecuador and over 4,000times the legal limit as allowed in most states in the US!
