The flipside of the Gates givings

From the LA Times (link unknown), via SMH, a brief story showing the lesser-known side of the Gates foundation

The Gates Foundation has poured $US218 million ($280 million) into polio and measles immunisation and research worldwide, including in the Niger Delta. At the same time it has invested $US423 million in Eni, Royal Dutch Shell, Exxon Mobil, Chevron and Total of France – the companies responsible for blanketing the delta with pollution, beyond anything permitted in the US or Europe.

The song my #2 shuffle chose to play right now is JT’s “What goes around/Comes around”. Serendipity is grand 🙂
