The government of the United Kingdom already has a policy on its use of palm oil and states :
"Palm oil production is often linked to deforestation and peatland drainage,mainly in Indonesia and Malaysia. This has major impacts on biodiversity, climate change and also land rights for local people."
France and Germany made a commitment in September 2013 to the use of sustainable palm oil as well by 2015.
Americans must not be used as unwitting partners in causing global warming when we are fed unsustainable palm oil nor can we be part of the problem of wildlife extinction .We must stand up in the fight against climate change when better versions of the product are readily available.
