Seven Nearly Extinct Sumatran Elephants Killed By Palm Oil Greed
UPDATE 2/26/14: P&G Using Conflict Palm Oil – Sign Petition
Still think checking those product labels for palm oil is too much of a hassle!?
These are nearly extinct Sumatran elephants we’re talking here. And the palm oil plantations don’t give a shit.
The sheer evil of palm oil greed knows no bounds. This is soul-breaking and heart-wrenching.
I hate the perpetrators. I do not give a shit what their reasons are, whether it’s poverty, crop preservation, self-defense, or something else. There’s no good reason for this. This is a crime against simply being a living entity on this planet all of us creatures share.
Mongabay, because it’s a top notch environmental journalism site, has to be objective by inserting the word “allegedly” into the story. However, I have no such requirement. I have the luxury of pointing fingers and being accusatory. Fuck palm oil plantations.
