Over on TheDiscerningBrute.com, our buddy Joshua Katcher recently interviewed Jeff Corwin — a wildlife conservationist and television host/producer.  Corwin is well-known for producing the documentary 100 Heartbeats for MSNBC and has a lot to say about the state of our environment.

During the interview, Jeff discussed controversial palm oil plantations and how the harvest of the resource is related to habitat loss and species extinction. He says:

“One out of every ten things we use in our lives comes from palm oil, and if it continues…we will lose all our rainforests in that part of the world in the next 10 years. There’s over 700 billion tons of carbon locked up in these forests, so when they’re caught and deforested and the flames goes up, that carbon goes in the atmosphere. The forests go away and the species are exposed, and that’s why we’re losing species. Habitat loss, climate change — they’re connected.”

Wowzers, right?
