Barely a few minutes ago while I was reading today's copy of NST. I stumbled upon this article (can't find the latest one) about a politically motivated agenda by western based NGO's for pressuring international food companies to halt using palm-oilingredient for their consumer's product. The cause of this matter is just that Palm-oil industry is MAIN REASON for Tropical Rainforest DEFORESTATION!!! How pathetic is that??? What about other industries that contributed to deforestation and massive loss of fauna habitats in highly developed western countries (it's does surely puzzled us though).
GreenPeace and FOE, another moronic so called enviromentallist retard are known to be influencing Cadbury to remove the palm-oil content from it's chocolate ingredient and insteadt went far to replaced it with other rival vegetable oil which are lower yield to consumers. The only replacement they could use is, Chocolate Butter.
Well do they know much land the cocoa farmer needed to grow cocoa trees to extract another nuts to produce the same amount of unsaturated palm fat? I'm very sure that one day the cocoa plantation will doubled twice the size of the largest palm-oil plantation if subsidies were permitted to them. And this will lead to massive deforestation in all part of tropical rainforest around the world.
I still remembers two years ago after reading some articles in our local daily about a crazy environmentalist dude wearing anOrangutan suit to warn all shopper's in UK not to buy the Malaysian palm-oil for claiming that the plantation had threaten the lives of Orangutan in Bornean part of Malaysia on a massive scale.
Massive scale!!!??? Malaysia!!!??? Orangutan!!!???
IS MALAYSIA THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT HARBOURS ORANGUTAN AND HAVE THE LARGEST PALM-OIL PLANTATION???
HELLO!!! THE ORANGUTAN IN MALAYSIA ARE WELL SPECIALLY PROTECTED AS A NATURAL HERITAGE. WE EVEN HAD SANCTUARIES FOR THEIR CONSERVATIONS. THEREFORE, NO SUCH THING AS PALM-OIL PLANTATION THREATENING THEIR HOMES ON SUCH MASSIVE SCALE. PLUS, ORANGUTAN CAN ONLY BE FOUND IN BORNEO AND NOT IN THE PENINSULAR.
The moron's even demanded New Zealand dairy farmer to stop them (farmer) to use palm kernel to feed their dairy cows. Surely, these will have a greater consequence as the milk production will decline because the cow only produce more milk when comsuming the palm kernel compares to corn or soy meal diet. As a result, dairy farmers will need to enlarge the cows grazing area causing more forested area to be cleared. (Historically, New Zealand temperate forrest were wiped out by settlement and many trees were logged to make way for grazing lands in order to produce milk, meat and wool which now was her main exports)
The question is why agricultural product produced out of deforested lands in NZ are acceptable to GreenPeace whereas, the palm oil which is produced by Malaysia is demonised?
Was this the work of a capitalist 'Hidden Hand' trying to destabilised Malaysian economic growth. Why only the tropical rainforest are the targets of conservations. Be it, even the temperate forest are valuable for cleaning up carbon dioxides in our air.
Do these pathetic moron realised that in Malaysia and Indonesia, palm oils are planted in agricultural lands just like other farm based product in other developed countries. These industries are vital to combat poverties in these places. Therefore any attempi made by these radicals can be seen as massive threat to livelihood of farmers in developing countries.
Shacklesmith : Thank's for reading my articles for tonight. For your information, this is actually a repost from my old blog two year's ago. Yes, I do have a blog few year's before I opened this blog last November. The reason why I happen to remember this article is because my mind kept boggling about Kalimantan/Borneo after yesterday's incident of Indonesian angry mob's who laid siege upon the Malaysian Embassy over some false accusation by Indonesian opposition's of Malaysian authorities intruding Sarawak/Kalimantan Barat frontier.
My mind never stop thinking about it as Borneo has the largest palm oil estate in the world and home to Orangutan.
