BP is being fined $4.5 billion. Their spill per Wikipedia was 4.9 million barrels. So they are being fined $920 per barrel. At that rate Chevron's fine should be about $2.5 million not $18 billion. In addition the Chevron spill caused no environmental damage or loss of life. Chevron has already paid $17.3 million so how much do you think is fare? In addition BP is back in operation in the Gulf and Chevron is not. This shows how screwed up Brazil is especially when you consider it is costing Brazil millions in lost revenue.
because Brazilian anti-American (Gringo) gangs are running the government. look at how long it took a guy named Goldberg to finally get custody of his child who his divorced mother abducted to Brazil before she died).... chaos rules down there, along with a prediliction to pick american pockets !
