Palm oil for power station in Hawaii threatens forests and communities

Hawaii's largest electricity company, HECO, could soon become one of the largest US importers of palm oil.  They have been given permission to burn 2.56 million gallons of palm oil in two large power stations for a 'test phase' – and  they want to burn far more after that.   HECO's so-called 'clean energy' will mean more deforestation and land-grabbing in South-east Asia and West Africa, and more climate change. Please go to 

and write to policy makers in Hawaii, requesting that they withdraw permission for HECO to burn palm oil or other agrofuels.  Please let friends and family know about this alert.  Many thanks.

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.
