Palming Off: the ecological disaster of palm oil

Palm oil is an unnecessary and offensive ecological disaster, the production of this one item is causing as much climatic damage as every single motorcycle, car, truck, train, boat, and airplane on earth. Further tropical forests have been and are being burned recklessly and extensively to make way for ever-more palm oil monoculture. The palm oil industry is boasting that our demand for palm oil is set to quadruple, vast and beautiful tropical Peat forests will be burnt to meet that demand, our demand, but only if we allow it. All this mindless destruction is they say just the law of supply and demand in action.
