The High Cost of Oil Photograph by Ed Kashi
A Shell clean-up crew wades into oil leaking from a shut-down well in Oloibiri, Nigeria, where the first petroleum was pumped from the Niger Delta in 1958. Since then Nigeria has become one of the world's major oil exporters, shipping out nearly 400 billion dollars of petroleum. But rather than prospering, the Niger Delta has suffered. Oil spills, explosions, gas flares, and fires have polluted and ruined its farms and fisheries.
