Deforestation must be "Green"
Interestingly, a large chunk of the deforestation is caused by bogus "sustainable" policies.
Mandatory biodiesel requirements in the EU and US have led to the clearance of vast swathes of native rainforest for palm oil plantations.
The almost bizarrely insane conversion of, previously unsubsidised and cost-effective, coal-fired power stations to burn wood chips leads to heavily subsidised generation at the cost of bulldozed US hardwood forests.
Neither policy leads to any reduction in CO2 emissions and may actually emit more.
