Update on April 15, 2013

This is pure craziness but British taxpayer dollars are being used to subsidise palm oil as biofuel.

The EU biofuel mandates are also having hugely distorting effects in the marketplace. Because used cooking oil is regarded as one of the most sustainable types of biodiesel, the price for it has risen rapidly. Rob Bailey says that towards the end of 2012 it was more expensive than refined palm oil."It creates a financial incentive to buy refined palm oil, cook a chip in it to turn it into used cooking oil and then sell it at profit,"

Please urge your friends to make the pledge and power down for the orangutans!!
