„Für jede in Deutschland durch den Biodiesel eingesparte Tonne Kohlendioxid werden in Indonesien bis zu 30 Tonnen freigesetzt. “
„For every ton of carbon dioxide saved in Germany by using bio-fuel (biodiesel made from vegetable oils) there are 30 tons of CO2 produced in Indonesia.“
This is because Germany needs so much fuel, that it has to import palm oil — which is grown in Indonesian plantations in areas that used to be rainforest before, and the rainforest when being burned to free the ground emitts enormous amounts of CO2.
Biofuel is green washing at its worst. Supported by the German government (headed by the CDU and Angela Merkel, the „climate chancelor“), even though the disastrous consequences are by now well know.
