The palm-oil crisis isn't over, but it has reached a critical inflection point - instead of just shouting from outside the gates, the environmentalists are inside, working hand in had with business leaders who have tremendous power to drive change.

So, our tropical forests of the world, are also the world's LUNGS?? I believe that easily. My goodness, we have openly then caused Cancer of the world's lungs by the destruction to date of these magnificent rainforests ----how stupid can we humans be? Once gone, they are not coming back. Over and Over I read and hear and see that humankind if openly killing off our home, which is Planet Earth. And, the question with it is always, How Stupid Can Humans Be??

Shirley - that's a question without an answer, I fear! Every time one thinks - can't get worse .... there's another law or policy or government action endorsing destructive action by Big Business, showing that the depths of stupidity are even greater than one could imagine!!

I've said it many times, and I say it again; -Palm oil is a bloody curse!
