Stop Burning Rain Forests for Palm Oil: Scientific American

Stop Burning Rain Forests for Palm Oil: Scientific American | Nature Animals humankind | 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.

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

 

Indonesia lost 8.8m ha of forest in the 2000s, generating 7 billion tons of CO2 http://www.scoop.it/t/biodiversity-is-life/p/3579095895/indonesia-lost-8-8m-ha-of-forest-in-the-2000s-generating-7-billion-tons-of-co2
