The commercial shows a typical office setting. A worker sits drearily at a desk, shredding papers and watching minutes tick by on the clock. When his break comes, he takes out a Nestle KitKat bar....

THIS MUST COME TO AN END - IT IS UNSUSTAINABLE, ANTI-LIFE AND SUICIDAL
Palm oil, usually produced from a species of palm tree originally from West Africa, has emerged over the past 30 years as one of the world’s most widely used—and controversial—crops. Palm oil goes into a range of products available in virtually every supermarket, pharmacy, and department store. It is used in roughly half of processed foods, ranging from crackers to peanut butter to ice cream; beauty products like shampoo, cosmetics, shaving cream, and soap (which account for nearly 10 percent of global consumption of palm oil); industrial lubricants; and even for biofuel production. Its versatility, combined with a yield far in excess of any other oilseed, has fueled its rapid expansion across southeast Asia: today, Indonesia and Malaysia—which account for 85 percent of global palm oil production—have more than 50,000 square miles of palm plantations, up from fewer than 580 square miles in 1984. But the crop’s success has come at a great environmental cost: more than half of the expansion since 1980 has come at the expense of natural forests. As such, palm oil has been targeted by environmentalists and scientists concerned about biodiversity loss, greenhouse gas emissions, and pollution. Furthermore, the palm oil industry has been challenged by land rights issues and social abuses, since expansion is occurring in areas where communities may traditionally use forests but lack title to land. New development in these areas spurs charges of land-grabbing and can exacerbate social conflict

CANADIAN MINING CORPORATION, EAST ASIA MINERALS. IS "WORKING CLOSELY" WITH INDONESIAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TO DESTROY ACEH'S FORESTS FOR LOGGING, PALM OIL, MINING http://ow.ly/kfs44
This week, East Asia Minerals put out a press release announcing that the Ministry of Forestry is “close to accepting a proposal to open 1.2 million hectares of forest in Aceh province for mining, logging, and palm oil production”. This is, incidentally, the same Ministry of Forestry that told the UN Forum on Forests last week that the country was committed to extending the two-year moratorium on conversion of primary forests and peatlands...
