Chevron Ecuador compares to Chevron Oil Refinery Accident? Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin can’t resist acting like an irresponsible and unknowing political activist, even as the Mayor of Richmond.

Ecuador President Rafael Correa has won reelection for a third term, but this time his massive 30-point victory is tainted by the mark of scandal. The basic assumption that comes with the news that an elected official has won reelection is the existence of a free press – that’s not the case in Ecuador. To be fair, before we continue, it must be reported...

Ecuador’s never good at listening, preferring to march against the World, and to the beat of its own, corrupt, legal drum. That habit caught up to the country in the Chevron Ecuador lawsuit, where an international arbitration tribunal at The Hague issued an award Thursday that went against the country. Basically, the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague,...

The news that an “Argentine judge has embargoed up to 19 billion dollars of Chevron Corporation’s assets in Argentina over an environmental damages lawsuit in Ecuador” is bogus.

Since 2008, this blogger has said that the Ecuador land damage that Chevron was blamed for was really the fault of the state-run oil company called Petroecuador, and because Chevron has not operated in the country since 1992, and over that time Petroecuador and other oil companies were and were using those oil lands that Chevron turned over to the state in 1992. This...

Lost in the flurry of lawsuits around the matter of Chevron oil production operations in Ecuador until 1992, – including Ecuador’s claim that Chevron did not clean up the land, and Chevron’s counter that it not only did clean up the land used, but that Ecuador’s state-run oil company Petroecuador took over the pits and caused many oil spills from...

There are calls in some media areas and by some oil industry analysts for Chevron to consider a payment settlement in the Ecuador case, and because the U.S. Supreme Court elected to hear the Shell Oil Nigeria Human Rights case.

All this blogger can say is “It’s about time” someone recognized just how bass-ackward corrupt the Government of Ecuador is and the efforts it has taken to mask the truth of how it treats its own people.

Wow, talk about a major conflict of interest, Patton Boggs, the Washington DC law firm that Chevron Ecuador plaintiff lawyer Steven Donziger brought in to take some heat and spotlight off of him as allegations of fraud and general Ecuadorian dirty-dealing surfaced, also lobbied for Chevron.
