Palm Oil Plantation

Pahang, Malaysia

3.974338506°, 103.207269311°

 

The rapid expansion of palm oil plantations in the world’s tropical regions, particularly in Indonesia, is becoming an increasingly significant source of carbon emissions. Clearing the native trees to allow for the expansion of plantations as seen here in the Malaysian state of Pahang will add more than 558 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere by 2020 — an amount greater than all of Canada’s current fossil fuel emissions. The oil is most commonly used as a cooking ingredient in Africa, Asia, and Brazil.
