More on the Hypocrisy of Petro-Politics

George Monbiot has an article excoriating global leaders for their hypocrisy in petro-politics. Monbiot compares the condemnation of Evo Morales for nationalizing Bolivia's oil industry (to help the poor) with the global silence when the government of Chad spent its oil revenues to acquire more arms and torture its political opponents, even though Chad had made agreements to spend the money on the needy.
