Yasuni Green Gold: The Amazon Fight to Keep Oil Underground
by Gines Haro (Author), Georgina Donati (Author), Troth Wells (Editor), Mauro Burzio (Photographer)
New Internationalist
Sep 2008.
 
Price in UK pounds
Price in US dollars

The Yasuni National Park is one of the most biologically diverse forests on the planet. It is home to the Huaorani and some of the last indigenous peoples still living in isolation in the Amazon. But their ancestral lands sit on top of Ecuador's largest undeveloped oil reserves. At the end of 2007, the government of President Rafael Correa made an unprecedented proposal: Ecuador will not allow extraction of the oil fields in Yasuni if the world community can create a compensation trust to leave the oil permanently in the ground and fund Ecuador's sustainable development into the future. This book offers a simple message to the world: close the region to the black gold of oil exploration and instead acknowledge that Yasuni's value is priceless, and protect it and its people-without condition.
