Palm Oil is currently used in thousands of products we use every day, from baked goods to cleaning products to shampoo. Unfortunately, tropical forests are being cleared at an alarming rate to make room for new palm oil plantations.

Signed with comment: "Since tropical forests are even more efficient carbon sinks than temperate forests, tropical forest destruction is extremely dangerous in terms of its effect on increasing global warming emissions. The world cannot afford more destruction of of these forests."

Thanks, sadly some corporations must be making a pile of money from palm oil. The rainforests are more important!

If we have no oxygen coming from our forests, we won't have to worry about what oil we are consuming.

All we have to do in the next election,is elect the Tea Party Republican GOP, so they can eliminate ALL restrictions placed on Big Business, at which point they can cut down ALL the rain forests. Holy mackerel, we can't restrict their efforts to increase their enormous wealth.

Who cares what happens to the rest of us?

When I came home from Borneo, I was so FURIOUS about the deforestation that I decided to BOYCOTT PALM OIL!

Not as easy as it sounds! It's in almost EVERYTHING and it's sometimes hidden as "vegetable oil."

Still...it's worth the effort. READ LABELS!

We've got to make sure we don't buy products with palm oil in them. These companies don't care about what is right, only what earns money. It makes me sick that they are so willing to sacrifice entire species and indeed our planet for the sake of the all mighty dollar. Speak out, tell your local retailer, don't buy this cr@p..
