Starting to get into the Sacred Headwaters/Amazon Bullshit

Looks like there is some really excellent financing from powerful institutions to stop oil/gas extraction from the Amazon Headwaters, which the usual suspects have titled "Sacred Headwaters" to give a false impression of small size and religious importance.

It's a huge area, big chunks of about a third of Columbia, Ecuador, and Peru. There's nothing sacred about it, people who live there sleep, eat and fuck over the 100M hectares.

Seems like an anti-development crusade.

Pachamama, one of the larger conglomerates, received $5M in 2018, and $4M in the year before that, is based out of San Francisco.

The guy behind it is a wealth guy whose son, Basil Twist Junior, is a puppeteer whose "Art" has been celebrated by the NY Times. He also lists his occupation on some donations as a "Rancher", so "Gentleman Farmer" tax exemption. He's given to Warren, Pelosi, Kerry, Moveon.org, and Mayday PAC (Larry Lessig).

Interesting that the Pachamama idols that were brought to the church to be worshipped by Pope Francis recently...
