Re: [greenyes] Interesting job opening
I would like to Shell do some social investment in Nigeria, from which it extracts huge amounts of petroleum, with no return to the Ogoni and other tribes who live in the oil-rich Nigerian delta. These people have suffered for years from environmental effects (oil spills; flares), political repression (the military-led regime preceding the election of President OBASANJO in1999 was horrific), and, ironically, fuel shortages in a country that exports millions of barrels of oil per day.
