In Focus Ecuador: The New Law of the Jungle

Pulitzer Center's Kelly Hearn is in Ecuador covering what has been dubbed Ecuador's Rainforest Chernobyl and it could turn out to be one of the biggest legal environmental battles ever fought. A powerful movement of indigenous peoples accuses Chevron subsidiary Texaco of dumping billions of gallons of waste into the jungle over a period of twenty years. If Chevron loses, this landmark case could raise the cost of doing business for corporations that extract resources from remote regions.
