Another announcement of an agreement to supply palm oil to create biofuels: Malaysia, South Korea Sign MoU On Biofuel

As I noted the other day, the hidden issue in this is how the palm oil is gathered. Large palm tree plantations are constructed, generally by cutting down swaths of rain forest.

Hence this is one of those times where the solution may be worse then the problem we're trying to solve.
