The Amazon Chernobyl
The disaster has been dubbed the Amazon Chernobyl. Between 1964 and 1992, the oil company Texaco, later acquired by Chevron in 2001, was allegedly responsible for the dumping of over 30bn gallons of toxic waste and crude oil into the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador. The impact on local communities has been devastating, destroying livelihoods and causing a spike in cancer and birth defects. Lead US attorney for the indigenous plaintiffs Steven Donziger joins host Ross Ashcroft.
