“60 Minutes” Wins An Award For “Amazon Crude”

Two “60 Minutes” segments received Edward R. Murrow Award for
excellence in journalism. One of them was for the investigation into
the Chevron lawsuit. It is great news since Chevron has been trying
to discredit the report from the very beginning.

I blogged a few days ago about Chevron’s own lawyer admitting under oath that Chevron has been lying about so-called “remediation” agreement signed by the Ecuadorian government and using it to avoid paying for the environmental disaster Texaco caused. The Chevron Pit posted some of Perez Pallares’ statements which contradict Chevron’s main defense argument.

I guess Chevron's CEO John Watson wanted to show everyone how much he cares about the environment when he asked the government for stronger safety standards that would prevent disasters like the one happening in the Gulf of Mexico now from happening again. Doesn't it sound though like he is saying that unless the government stops the oil companies, they will do whatever they want? While trying to save money they will put our world at risk and if anything disastrous happens, they will just find ways to escape the responsibility.
