The location marked is not a desert or some otherworldly place as you might imagine. Its Ecuador on the edges of the Amazon. Apparently there is a lot of Oil in the Amazon. Ecuador is one of the locations mentioned in the book I am reading at the moment.
I had been meaning to pick up a book I had heard about recently. A few nights ago I finally got round to picking up a copy. I am only a little way in and already I fear it will leave me depressed at the prospect of finishing it. If even 1% of the information is true then the outlook for us all is rather bleak.
The book is Confessions Of An Economic Hitman.
While burning time before seeing “the Last King of Scotland”, a fantastically acted film, even if the subject was rather dark and horrific, I entered the book shop and figured I would ask the assistant to help me track the book down.
Helpfully he quickly went about entering the title into the computer.
“We don’t have that on our inventory, sorry”.
“Could you try just Hitman”? I offered.
“nope sorry, we don’t seem to have it, are you sure thats the title”?
I reiterated that I was sure and decided to meander the shelves ‘just to look see’. Sure enough 3 copies sat in the political section. Odd.
As I mentioned at the start, the book is really quite worrying. I imagine in the same way the film An Inconvenient Truth is (I haven’t seen it yet),certainly thought and conversation provoking like Loose Change.
I am not usually prone to believing in conspiracy, fact or theory, however on occasions information is presented that really leaves you only the choice to investigate a little yourself. Hence the map from Google.
