Please boycott palm oil! Nutella, "natural no-stir" peanut butter, instant ramen noodles, "yogurt" covered snacks, and many brands of microwave popcorn and margarine contain palm oil.

Thank you! (s, n, p, t) We have to share the news and petitions with everyone we know and beg them to do the same to save our planet from utter destruction! We must bombard all of the governments of the world with petitions and phone call and force them to wake up and stop the destruction.

Noted. So sad, too terrible, how can they ever repair the vast devastation they have caused! Do these evil people evil have a conscience, somehow I doubt it.
