Nestlé’s wet greed, Chevron sues rainforest, EPA’s ethanol pyramid scheme

A small victory by activists in Ontario, Canada, who were able to pressure their government to keep Nestlé from conducting water extractions during times of drought. Han Shan, spokesperson for Ecuadorian Victims of Chevron Contamination, talks about the decades-long legal battle between oil giant Chevron and indigenous residents of Ecuador’s rainforest who suffered from a massive oil contamination. Activist and musician Eleanor Goldfield, front woman of the band Rooftop Revolutionaries, discusses bridging art and activism, and why modern musicians don’t tackle politics. Finally, Erin Ade, host of the new show ‘Boom Bust’, talks about the EPA’s unregulated creation of ethanol credits and Wall Street’s monopolizing pyramid scheme over the industry.
