The EPA has recently made the preliminary finding that palm-oil based biofuels do not meet the greenhouse gas standards of the federal renewable fuels mandate.
Palm oil companies know that this is jeopardizing news to their multi-billion dollar industry. As a result, the EPA is being challenged by the lobby muscle of Indonesian and Malaysian palm oil industry--to leverage political influence over science. Two giant palm oil companies, Cargill and Wilmar, are claiming that palm-oil emissions are exaggerated-- making the EPA vulnerable to softening its standards.
Urge the EPA to choose science over political influence!
