Response to ForgoTheConsequence (Reply #4)

15. From what I've been reading

Ecuador is one of the most progressive countries on earth. They actually have protection of the ecosystem as part of the constitution.

"Ecuador has the first constitution to recognize the rights of nature. The protection of the nation's biodiversity is an explicit national priority as stated in the National Plan of "Buen Vivir", or good living, objective 4, Guarantee the rights of nature, policy 1: "Sustainably conserve and manage the natural heritage including its land and marine biodiversity which is considered a strategic sector"."

(from Wiki - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecuador#Biodiversity )

You have a lot less problems as a small country if you don't have a U.S. embassy...




And by paying attention to who is NOT paying attention, much can be learned...
