Madre de Dios: Latest photos of the environmental disaster

Via the twitterfeed of wonderful Frank Bajak, the AP reporter who's been there and reported on the shame of all Peru, your author is given the headsup on the latest set of photos from the Madre de Dios region of Peru featured on the reliable eco-site Mongabay. Here's just one in the extensive collection there, make a point of clicking though to see them all.

Words fail me. I mean, disgusting is just scratching the surface. More photos here (and be warned, they don't get any prettier)
