The Agrofuel lobby which includes the The Malaysian Oil Palm Council have won the ‘Worst EU Lobbying Award’ for their use of misleading information and greenwash to influence crucial debates in the European Parliament and Council by claiming that agrofuels (crops used for fuel for cars and lorries) are sustainable.
We at What Rainforest? would like to thank all our readers who have taken their time off to vote. As a result, the agrofuel lobby raked in 52% of the votes, leaving its runner up, The International Air Transport Association (IATA) with only an appalling 14% of the votes.
This goes to show that the frequent trips made by our dear Plantations, Industries and Commodity Minister, Y.B. Datuk Peter Chin Kah Fui have not gone to waste. Heck, he flies there so often, he might as well work for the IATA too. Let us all give Datuk Peter Chin a pat in the back.
You go Pete!
