  2. That's enough to stop me buying palm oil products from now, but how do you do that?
    In Australia, products aren't clearly labelled whether they have palm oil or not.

    It's a losing battle.

  3. What did the Indonesian people do, until Harrison ford had to come all the way and settled this forest problems. The question is what did Indonesian people do? The Indonesian people who in charge are corrupt, they know everything but just don't take action because this person in charge take corruption money. This the difference between east and west.

  7. deforestation is true, but the fact is all of us use that oil. u want to change palm oil with what? sunflower, corn, canola? come on, you need double deforestation for sunflower, corn or canola to produce oil that equivalent with palm oil. Palm tree is the most efficient tree to produce oil. Vegetable oil is needed because we use it, if we stop using palm oil that means we will make more deforestation to replace palm oil. If we want stop deforesation, stop using vegetable oil.

  9. Palm oil is a healthy oil, but the European oil industry is spending a lot of money to sabotage palm oil industry. The European vegetable oils such as sunflower, corn, canola, are low yield crop oils. Palm oil plantations produce 10x more oil than all the European vegetable oils, so the European oil industry wants to put a stop to palm oil. What do they do? 1. They fund the Environmental Groups and activists to say the rainforest and orangutans are dying "all because of palm oil". But in actuality there are many other factors to deforestation such as construction, farming, development, timber trade, etc. But they only blame palm oil. 2. The European oil industry tries to boycott palm oil by forcing manufacturers such as Nestle and P&G to stop using palm oil. 3. The latest accusation is that palm oil "the evil industry" is using child labour. Untrue. Not all palm oil plantations use child labour. In Indonesia, the people are so poor and often the family needs the children to help out in easy tasks part time such as sweep the leaves, collect some loose fruits. But only in small percentage of cases. You can't ban palm oil just because a small percentage use child labour, you might as well ban Nike and Adidas shoes and Iphones. 4. The Europeans are now forcing big banks to stop funding planters who are in the palm oil business, unless the planters join a "Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil" controlled by the Europeans. Yeah very smart, after they join, you Europeans control the palm oil industry for your own profit.
