There goes the old man…

Looks like we’re gonna kill off the Orang Utan.

Well done us, when God told us to look after the world, or bring the good news to all creation, we really took that one seriously!

Actually the Orang Utan thing is a good case in point about what I blogged earlier, the need to change the way we think about consumption, the Orang Utan’s are dying because we’re destroying their habitat, in pursuit of palm oil.

Here’s what the The Observer says: “Palm oil is seen by critics as a cautionary tale about good intentions. As a vegetable oil it can enhance a healthy diet, and as a biofuel it can reduce carbon emissions which contribute to climate change. Yet it transpires that humans’ pursuit of an ethical lifestyle could inadvertently mean a death sentence for one of the great apes. ”

Ho hum.
