Hey everyone,

The idea behind this email action is to make sure that carbon rainforest protection payments actually do what they are supposed to do: protect rainforests, not destroy them!

Action on agrofuels

Recently, politicians in Europe have jumped on the idea that making fuel from plants could be a solution to climate change. But Europe’s increased demand for these agrofuels (also called biofuels) is likely to have devastating impacts on the developing countries which produce them.

Rainforests will be destroyed to make way for palm oil plantations and the poor will suffer as global food prices rise. Even in Europe, food is already getting more expensive and farming will need to become more intensive as agricultural land is taken up growing agrofuels.

The European Union’s policies are even accelerating these trends. An EU decision that 10% of all transport fuels must be produced from agrofuels by the year 2020 is driving investment into the agrofuels sector.

Action Alert: Climate Protection Payments Must Avoid Deforestation of Ancient Rainforests AND Their Industrial Diminishment

Ancient rainforests will only fully hold their carbon when strictly protected.
Selective logging diminishes primary and old-growth forests' carbon stores, ecosystems, and biodiversity; and has no place in proposed carbon market payments for rainforest and climate protection.

Our campaign against European biofuel targets now continues, as the EU are
consulting on proposals for future legislation. The EU are consulting on
‘sustainability standards’, but they make it clear that they cannot stop new
biofuel monocultures from pushing palm or soya plantations for food, or other
agricultural activities further into the rainforests. Under the proposed
standards, companies would have an incentive to sell palm oil or soya from land
logged in the past for biodiesel and cut down more forest for food or animal
feed. Moreover, biofuels from plantations where people have been poisoned by
pesticides, evicted or even killed will still be classed as ‘sustainable’.
Biofuels drive up the prices of palm oil, soya and sugar cane, all linked
directly to the rate of rainforest destruction. Only an end to targets and
incentives can bring hope to the world’s remaining rainforests and to many
communities in the global South.

More than 1,000 government delegates are now meeting in Bonn to try to break gridlock in international climate change negotiations amid widening public concern and widely evident global warming impacts. This is the first time government climate delegations have met since the U.N. sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a spate of reports this year, drawing on the studies of some 2,500 scientists, which predict grim consequences of global warming if swift action is not taken. These climate change policy-makers must be challenged to develop a strengthened Kyoto regime as soon as possible that transitions the world to low carbon societies.

This year's first IPCC report found global warming is almost certainly human caused and the second warned of the consequences already occurring and yet to come such as massive human death and disease, droughts, floods, and storms. The third report said fighting global warming would not undermine the world economy, and would be less costly if started now. Foremost, solutions were said to require greater use of renewable energy and setting a price on carbon to drive up the cost of using fossil fuels. Other key recommendations include not waiting for new technologies and proceeding immediately with policies such as shifting away from coal, embracing energy efficiency, reducing deforestation, implementing fuel taxes and strengthening Kyoto's binding emission limits.

Current Bonn talks are preparing for a meeting of environment ministers in Bali, Indonesia, in December. It is essential formal negotiations are launched in Bali to widen and strengthen the U.N.'s Kyoto Protocol as soon as possible, and certainly before the current Kyoto agreement expires in 2012. A new more comprehensive and aggressive international climate change policy must be developed that is sufficient to keep warming within relatively safe parameters. First and foremost, Kyoto's framework for cutting greenhouse emissions must be accelerated and expanded, minimally along the lines of already adopted EU policy to cut carbon gases by 20 percent by 2020, compared to 1990 levels (30 percent if other major polluters follow suit). The longer term goal must be to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050 or earlier.

On 6th and 7th of May, ministers from Europe and elsewhere will be
meeting in Kyoto for the 40th AGM of the Asian Development Bank. The
Asian Development Bank (ADB) have a long record of financing
rainforest destruction for palm oil plantations in Indonesia. They
are thinking of massively expanding their funding for palm oil and
other destructive monocultures through their 'renewable energy
budget'. Palm oil and other biofuels grown at the expense of
rainforests and other ecosystems, local communities and food
production are not renewable energy. ADB are already a major
contributor to global warming by financing new fossil fuel power
stations and exploration across Asia, and by financing
deforestation. Global warming is a threat to all rainforests.
Please write to ministers now to demand that ADB must fund neither
biofuel expansion nor fossil fuels. Many thanks.

Save the Cypress ! [09 Mar 2007|09:48am]

anjel_kitty
Help stop the mulching of these beautiful ancient sentinels of the swamp. Call Wal-Mart, Lowes, and Home Depot today and ask them to stop using cypress mulch:



Please call Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Lowe's to ask them stop selling cypress mulch and start promoting sustainable alternatives instead. The numbers and some easy talking points are below. When you're done, don't forget to fill out the form at the bottom to let us know you called and how the companies responded.
***************

1. For Wal-Mart, call 479-273-4000 and ask to speak with CEO Lee Scott. You'll be transferred to an operator who will ask your name and number. Make it clear that you'd like to talk to Mr. Scott, they probably won't let you, so just leave him a message.

Hello! My name is ________________, and I'm calling from _______________. I'm calling to ask Wal-Mart to stop selling cypress mulch. The mulch you sell is coming from endangered forests on the Gulf Coast. Those forests are the best natural protection we have from hurricanes and flooding. After Hurricane Katrina, Wal-Mart made a commitment to sustainability, and I want you to live up to it. There are plenty of sustainable mulch alternatives you can sell instead. Please discontinue all cypress mulch products. Thanks.


2. For Lowe's, call 704-758-1000 and ask to speak with CEO Robert Niblock. They should transfer you to his office, and if he's not available, just leave a message. Script below.

3. For Home Depot, call 800-654-0688, listen through the whole menu until the voice recognition part, when prompted say "Frank Blake" (he's the CEO). You'll probably end up at an operator, and then you can ask to be transferred to the CEO's office.
If that doesn't work, just call 800-HOMEDEPOT (800-466-333-768) and choose option 3. When you talk to the Customer Assistant make sure you ask for the CEO. You'll probably just have to leave a message for Mr. Blake.

Hello! My name is ________________, and I'm calling from _______________. I'm calling to ask [Home Depot or Lowe's] to stop selling cypress mulch. The mulch you sell is coming from endangered forests on the Gulf Coast. Those forests are the best natural protection we have from hurricanes and flooding. The [Home Depot or Lowe's] already has good sustainability policies, and its time to apply them to cypress mulch. There are plenty of sustainable mulch alternatives you can sell instead. Please discontinue all cypress mulch products. Thanks.

It only takes a minute of your time, and together we can all make a huge impact.
If you do call, please leave me a comment and let me know so I can keep a tally.
