The real price of oil

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the case of indigenous groups against Texaco/Chevron for polluting the Amazonian region of Ecuador. There is a documentary on this sordid tale that has just come out in theaters (currently in NYC and LA but coming out across the country over the next few weeks). It’s called Crude: The real price of oil and was shown at Sundance and other festivals. If you are in LA, it’s showing at the Nuart in West LA from the 18th-24th (and the filmmaker will be at showings on the first two days).

On a related note, Forbes recently published a commentary on the case by Steven Donziger, the attorney representing the indigenous groups in the case. Almost more interesting than the column itself (which is obviously not un-biased) are the diatribes against it from Forbes readers.
