Read the Guardian interview by David Hill of E-Tech Chief Engineer Bill Powers, at a June oil industry conference, concerning oil company road building in the supposedly roadless and protected Yasuni-ITT region of Ecuador.   There are very intense efforts to halt all oil exploitation in the region but the Ecuadoran government has at a minimum promised no roads although it appears corporate plans differ.......please pass this on.  It follows the release of Matt Finer remote sensing photos in recent weeks.
