Shooting Down the Doves

FOREST BURNING IN BORNEO BY UNILEVER PALM OIL SUPPLIER


THREATENING THE ORANG UTANS


THE AFTERMATH
In the United Kingdom, at the Unilever factory at Port Sunlight, near Liverpool, sixty Greenpeace activists occupied the production lines, while in London employees at Unilever's HQ were greeted on their way to work by screeching mating calls and orang-utans clambering all over the building.
At Unilever's Rotterdam HQ, in the Netherlands, six activists scaled the waterfront building and hung a banner reading, "Unilever, Don't Destroy the Forests".


In Rome, another ten orang-utans stopped Unilever employees entering their Italian HQ. Jumping out of a huge box marked, "Stop Dove from Destroying Rainforests," the orang-utans handed out flyers outlining the palm oil situation and demanding a moratium.

From just tens of miles away from our rain forests, we are watching people from other continents several thousand miles away fighting for our rain forests. Isn't it funny?
...
and shameful?

Your website reminds me of one thing.

DOo we ever pay carbon tax for what we've done?

In Malaysia, so far there have been no carbon tax. However, it is implemented in most of the developed countries. If you emit carbon or have a high carbon footprint, you will have to pay for it in the form of taxes by the government. There is a carbon credit program going on in Malaysia where the companies which reduce carbon emission will be awarded with subsidies or cash under an international emissions trading. Anyway, thanks for dropping by, Melvin.
