A plunderer is a plunderer

Document Actions

Kudos to Jonathan Thompson for bringing attention to the growing plunder of Western resources by multinational corporations (HCN, 7/25/11). Not only are rare minerals being extracted at a record rate, more importantly, irreplaceable wilderness areas are being devastated in the process. And what about those American corporations that shamelessly violate and destroy our precious public lands all in the name of profit? At the end of the day, it matters little whether the company that levels a forest, dams up a river, or eviscerates a whole mountainside has its headquarters in Shanghai, Toronto or Denver.
