Stop Burning Rain Forests for Palm Oil: Scientific American

Stop Burning Rain Forests for Palm Oil: Scientific American | Conservation and Bottlenecking | Scoop.it

December 7, 2012 - Scientific American

The world's growing appetite for cheap palm oil is destroying rain forests and amplifying climate change...

Palm oil exports bring Indonesia and neighboring Malaysia $40 billion a year.Yet this profit comes at a terrible toll. Converting forests into oil palm plantations destroys the home of not only orangutans but also such critically endangered creatures as the Sumatran tiger and the Sumatran rhino.

Moreover, the denuding of this land through logging and burning releases large quantities of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. Much of this forest sits on peatland, the draining and burning of which releases even more carbon dioxide than the clearing of the overlying trees does....  http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=stop-burning-rain-forests-for-palm-oil

Scientists estimate that during the Indonesian fires of 1997, between 0.81-2.67 gigatons of carbon were released into Earth’s atmosphere (Page et al 2002). This is comparable to 13-40% of the fossil fuels emitted globally that same year, catapulting Indonesia to be ranked the world’s third highest emitter of greenhouse gases (after China and the USA) according to some indices ... http://news.mongabay.com/2013/0626-op-ed-miles-fisher.html

Jonathan Geothermal's curator insight, July 5, 2013 4:20 AM

Palm oil is increasingly getting attention for being just as destructive to Indonesia's environment and international reputation as the country's coal industry. One more reason to hope Jero Wacik is serious about finally unlocking some of the country's clean energy potential during his time as Energy Minister.

We've all seen images of trash on beaches, or floating on the surface of the ocean. But a surprising amount ends up on the deep seafloor, at depths so great that it's been very hard for us to really know what the situation is.
