This is infuriating. We are destroying everything we come in contact with. How do we stop this?

Let macaque monkeys live their lives. Of course human beings have to intervene, as usual.

If we all REFUSE to buy products with palm oil, they will stop destroying forests for the oil palm plantations. Please boycott Nutella, International Delight Coffee creamer, most margarine and microwave popcorn, "yogurt" or 'white chocolate" coated snacks, instant ramen noodles, etc...

Human activities and over population are destroying the Erths animals and like a line of dominos, life supporting systems will fail and "fix" the human overpopulation problem!

Man thinks he knows everything. Humans can be, and are pathetic. I also will not buy products with palm oil.

We humans just destroy everything nature has given us. Greed and profit.
