The Mauritius oil spill's tanker just split in two. Damage to the Indian Ocean ecosystem is TBD.

The ship originally "ran aground on a coral reef on July 25 and a week later began leaking over 1,000 tonnes of oil into a protected marine park boasting mangrove forests and endangered species."[1]

Capitalism and colonialism serve the same master; each always fails to correctly assign loss to themselves; why so many times must cleanup and damage control be done by volunteers[2] and donations? Why do corps get to minimize their portion of responsibility for environmental mistakes while maximizing their own profits?

There's something big missing here.

Tortoise Mountain Natives Do Not Like English Ivy

It is time to stop Ecological and economic genocide upon people of color. Tortoise Mountain and Turtle Island natives are the original Ecosteaders. Long before European and other settlers with delusions about government-subsidized Farmworld and Cafeworld development in "blocks" of colonialist infrastructure, Native Land Before Invasion was organic. And there never were opportunities or roles for a white male "Chief" Executive Officer. Fix the problems plaguing Europe before testing your ideas here.
