Should I boycott palm oil?
Issue with one of the arguments adduced for not reducing palm-oil consumption: Allegedly, if less PALM oil were produced in Malaysia — more SOYBEAN oil would be produced by clear-cutting the Amazon rain-forest. However, news reports have stated that more and more Palm Oil is being IN South America, including the shrinking rain-forest. SO: less palm-oil consumption benefits biodiversity in BOTH Malaysia AND the Amazon rain-forest. Another point that was blithely thrown in, not as an argument but as a passing tidbit: (I paraphrase) “Many Malaysian Families have become wealthier due to palm oil, so that THEY’VE BEEN ABLE TO BUY CARS” — as if that in itself were a marvelous outcome.
