1. Lead author of report to the intelligence community on "sudden surprises" and security threats of climate change by the National Research Council.
2. When the government is funded by the oil companies and not taxpayers - anything goes in Nigeria. Forty years of pollution hurts fisherfolk & farmers. Unlike BP after the Gulf spill, no compensation or cleanup.
But recent cases in the Netherlands, and the U.S. Supreme Court try to make these would be corporate "persons" responsible for the repression and torture they fund.
