Let all die

After decades of suffering from this grand scale of pollution many have died. Many more have tried to survive but they have NOT?

This environmental nightmare is recorded as good as it can get on film. When seeing anyone with any logic of common sense and reason can see the indigenous people plight and flight to try and make a home some how.

Simply put it is not going to happen. The oil and gas carcinogens are everywhere in the land water and all around where those people had lived for thousands of years undisturbed.

Likewise many of the original plaintiffs have died.

Those that suffered most in the Exxon Valdez case have never been paid. WHY let all die.

Exxon and Chevron are from the original oil companies founded by John D. Rockefeller he killed who got in his way then and now his legacy of getting rid of folks is still utmost important.
