Conflict: Indigenous People, Palm Oil, Conservationist and Carbon Trading

Conflict: Indigenous People, Palm Oil, Conservationist and Carbon Trading


Redamazon, 12 November, 2007

http://redamazon.wordpress.com/2007/11/12/conflict-indigenous-people-palm-oil-conservationist-and-carbon-trading/

Read the interview below, it is a good example of how the energy shift is going the wrong way. Everyone wants a piece of the Indonesian Rainforest: logging companies, palm oil companies, carbon offsetting companies and conservationist companies such as WWF.

Open Letter

To: The Council of the European Union, the European Commission, the European Parliament, and citizens in Europe

We are extremely concerned by the plans as presented by the European Commission to adopt a mandatory target for biofuel use in transport.
