VOA: In the Galapagos archipelago, in Ecuador, they accuse the Chinese fleet of causing the increase in plastic garbage that water currents carry to the islands. Plastic bottles of Chinese brands that are not marketed in Latin America, reach the shores of this Natural Heritage of Humanity. The Voice of America traveled to one of the places in the archipelago most affected by the accumulation of plastic.

THEY ARE BACK !!!

ImageChina pays 22 cents per tree
The push that China is giving to clean energy contains a paradox: the incentives it gave to discourage the use of coal sparked excessive interest in the raft that has razed the trees in the Amazon. Meanwhile, the indigenous community members who own these territories continue to live precariously and say they have been robbed by intermediaries.

Infobae - Argentina - La pesca ilegal china causa miles de millones de dólares de pérdidas para los países en desarrollo

Chinese illegal fishing causes billions of dollars of losses for developing countries
According to other research, with nearly 3,000 boats, China built the world's largest fishing fleet in 20 years. The numerous ships of the Asian giant travel the length and breadth of the planet in search of fish, since it has exhausted its resources in its own waters.

Anyone who follows international football in South America will know that Ecuador have a pretty formidable record at home. They’ve relied on this to qualify for three of the last five World Cups and although they weren’t present in Russia, their own backyard is where they managed to pick up 17 of their 20 points during the qualifying stage. But why is this? Having watched some Ecuadorian club football on the TV, it’s not down to ability. Strong teams like Brazil and Colombia have managed to come away with a win, but it’s not easy. The simple reason for this is, as I found out last week, the altitude.
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care; They pursued it with forks and hope; They threatened its life with a railway-share; They charmed it with smiles and soap.

Quito is only 200 meters higher above the sea than Bogota!

The Ecuadorians prefer the high ground.

Alexander von Humboldt came up with a powerful phrase that could be considered to be one of the most fitting descriptions about Ecuadorians, which was the following 
“Ecuadorians are strange and unique human beings, they sleep peacefully amid smoking volcanoes, they live in poverty amid incomparable wealth and they cheer up with sad music”
