Unused plant parts are incinerated at a palm oil production facility in Malaysian Borneo. In addition to the emissions produced by this process, thousands of acres of tropical forest are felled for palm oil plantations, including the unique jungle near this mill that is home to orangutans, proboscis monkeys, and other rare and threatened species.

Deforestation is responsible for 20% of global carbon emissions - more than that emitted by all modes of transportation combined. Yet palm oil is being championed for its growing use in biofuels.
