Palm oil is food not fuel: ban the use of crop-based biofuels in the UK!

    1. Petition by

      Palm Oil Consumer Action

The UK's Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation calls for the use of crop-based bio-fuels which will cause food prices to soar and make global warming worse as more forests are lost to the cultivation of these crops. Conventional palm oil especially is one of the biggest causes of global warming and it must not be allowed to be used as fuel!

      I'm outraged at the devastation palm oil is wreaking on the environment and on the lives of animals who depend on the forest.

      Hemp produces much better fuel without destroying such ecologically necessary forests. Stop destroying the habitat of endangered species to make fuel where there are better options available! We need to stop treating like this planet like we have another one to go to once we destroy it!
