But this clause was never part of the original plan, he says. This could be considered unconstitutional.
Tech Raptor. Hussain was critical of some of the story and felt some of the worlds "feel either empty or lacking in what they offer", but did praise the design of the worlds, while also enjoying the amount of gameplay variety. Action role-playing. At that time, the worlds in the first section were said to be 90 percent complete and development of the middle section at around 60 percent. Our Zelda: Link's Awakening walkthrough and guide can help you with the critical path, including the Eagle's Tower and Turtle Rock dungeons. Food, Drugs, Healthcare, Life Sciences. While those titles aren't PS4 exclusives, we learned that Sony's console is the lead platform, with the Xbox One version effectively built as a port.
Mazabanda from Amazon Watch says the referendum question was a deception from the beginning. The people should have asked more directly whether they thought oil extraction should happen in Yasuni at all, he says. The way the question was posed shows that the government did not have the best interests in mind for the environment or the nearby indigenous communities, says Mazabanda. Kelly Swing, director and founder of the Tiputini Biodiversity Station with the University of San Francisco Quito, has long been studying the impacts of the oil industry on the Amazon rainforest. Better equipment today has reduced the risk of spills and leaks, and new extraction sites no longer use gas flares that emit toxins into the atmosphere.

One of the textbook examples of this environmental catastrophe is the Texaco owned by Chevron since oil field that opened in the north of Ecuador in , which for decades had been dumping toxic waste into the Amazon. No one has ever assumed responsibility for cleaning up the toxins, and black pools of oil still sit in the rainforest, also affecting the communities just outside the city of Lago Agrio. In the case of the Amazon, extracting near bodies of water is particularly risky as these exacerbate the spread of oil.
Last year, state-owned PetroAmazonas started exploiting the Tambococha oil wells, which lie just behind the Tambococha and Jatuncocha lagoons. Locals and environmentalists are concerned that if there was a spill in any of the Tambococha wells, it would reach the lagoons and destroy the area. One of the bigger concerns for environmentalists is the construction of roads to access these remote extraction sites.
These roads often create a chain reaction that invites agriculture or other human activity, leading to mass deforestation. The area was once pristine rainforest but was opened up to extraction activities in the s, and today is almost completely surrounded by oil palm plantations. If this were to happen near Yasuni, it would be a disaster not just for the region but for the climate. New science is increasingly pointing to the need to save tropical forests as an essential way to address climate change. A Yasuni park guard, who asked not to be named as he was not authorized to speak to the media, says he is impressed by how PetroAmazonas has been running its operations in ITT.
The oil company has its own monitoring system, including camera traps, has modest-sized roads, and has employed biologists to ensure that its operations have the least environmental impact possible. This includes the 40 park guards working in Yasuni and staff from other environmental monitoring bodies. Granizo, who is currently the senior manager at the World Wildlife Fund in Quito, says he continues to promote the growth of the bio-economy.
This includes focusing exports on more sustainable initiatives, supporting local production and reducing consumption worldwide.
