Earth Day 2015 Update & Correction on Palm Oil

Yesterday, on the Huffington Post website, a scientist named Elliot Negrin, a Senior Writer for the Union of Concerned Scientist posted an article entitled, “McDonald’s pledges to eliminate Deforestation from its entire supply chain.”

He mentioned Indonesia.  I noted Indonesia/Malaysia. His was the correct country.  My apologies to Malaysia.

Mr. Negrin noted the damage from Deforestation to produce Palm Oil.  You can access the article on either the Huffington Post or the Union of Concerned Scientist websites.

One final thing:  I had called for contacting and encouraging scientists to speak out about this issue; the Union of Concerned Scientist have been in the forefront of the struggle for 40 years.  Little did I know.
