1) The pollution in the Niger Delta will cost $1 billion and take over 30 years to clean.

2) Friends of the Earth and some Niger Delta residents are suing Shell in the Hague, in the Netherlands.

Read the full report by the United Nations entitled “UN environmental assessment of Ogoniland – Executive Summary”, which details the devastating pollution in the Delta.
