EPA must not approve palm oil!

Orang-utans lose their habitat because of the deforestation for palm oil

Dear friends of the rainforest,

The rainforests are the lungs of our planet and must be protected. Stop the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from bowing to lobbyist pressure to overturn their recent decision that palm oil should not be included in the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Next week an EPA delegation will visit a palm oil plantation on Sumatra island and then meet the Indonesian agriculture minister, Gamal Nasir. Among the victims of the deforestation for palm oil plantations in Indonesia are the helpless and endangered orang-utans.

Regarding this visit, it is extremely important to make the EPA aware of the environmental hazards caused by the cultivation of palm oil.

Please sign now and urge the EPA to not include palm oil in the federal renewable fuel standard:


Many thanks and best regards

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