Making biofuel out of palm oil causes more environmental destruction than petroleum. They literally burn down disappearing rain forests to grow one crop of trees, and then the land is dead and useless (unless you want the torrent of CO2 and methane it releases afterward) so they torch up more each year. Indonesian rainforests are almost completely wiped out and the palm oil industry is not slowing down one bit.
