Summary
Once widely considered a sustainable energy source, some forms of biofuel are now seen as exploitative and environmentally harmful. This program examines the global dilemma over palm oil-a fuel source championed by the European Union before the effects of its cultivation became apparent in the developing world. Viewers meet members of Indonesia's Orang Rimba tribe who have drawn sustenance from the rainforests for millennia and now watch as their lands give way to palm oil plantations. The film highlights efforts by tribal and Western activists to fight deforestation, as well as the work of E.U. leaders like Claude Turmes, who once supported agrofuel quotas but now recognizes their destructive impact
