    The fact that environmentalists are claiming credit for Chevron’s decision six months ago to abandon the project doesn’t make it so. The cited reference also states, “Seven of the 11 multinationals which invested in Poland – including Exxon, Talisman and Marathon
    – have already pulled out, citing permit delays and disappointing results.” — which has been what we have been hearing for some time now. Furthermore, whilst it would certainly make sense for Russia to encourage Green activists to prevent the development of local energy supplies, where was the Polish government, which recognizes the need and had issued permits for the project, in all this?
