The Yasuni National Park, known as "the lungs of the world" and one of the most bio-diverse places on earth, is under threat from oil drilling.
Since: Jan 10
It's all about the money in the end. The government has pledged repayment of $10 billion to the Chinese in barrels of oil.
In addition, when the 'threat' went out to drill or mine the Yusuni National Park, the president threatened that if the world community did not provide the funding needed NOT to frill, his government would drill. So it is a catch 22!
The Yasuni National park is in the Amazon where native peoples live. There is little income as there are no jobs there, very little infer-structure, etc.
And it sin't about for 'just the people that live here!' It has to do with protecting the animal species that is there, plants, the list is almost endless. The loss of this Park would be a blow to Ecuador, South America, and the world! I think the video made this pretty clear, no?
This comment is no doubt from one of the population from the so called "Civilsed Nations" who made their money by screwing third world countries in the first place, and who account for about 30% of the worlds pollution. A throw away society who need the raw resources because they have been unable to sort their own backyard out, so use monetary controls to ensure that those goods have to be supplied by countries that have those natural resources, then they can sit back and tell the world what a greedy country that third world place must be. Hypocrite!
Greed is the inordinate desire to possess wealth, goods, or objects of abstract value with the intention to keep it for one's self, far beyond the dictates of basic survival and comfort. It is applied to a markedly high desire for and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.(wiki)
So if Ecuador is using those resources in order to survive in the big wide world, it is not greed.
This president Correa is the worse thing that ever happened to Ecuador.
The son of drug dealer,
Who win the election with money from colombian cartels,
who export cocaine to Europe and USA I'm diplomatic pouches,
Downgraded our international credit by defaulting our national debt,
Now he wants 300 million dollars from the international community or else he will destroy Yasuni, that is called terrorism, and he will explore Yasuni anyway with or without the money.
He ignores people's needs
Only care about himself only
He doesn't represent my country, he represent himself.
It is said that uses drugs on the daily basis.
Even his own wife is ashamed of him, she doesn't want to be called the first lady of a tyrant.
