Besides the financial issue which is what the clip is about, it's interesting to see the enormity of the plantation, one of many in Malaysia where the tree grows naturally.The vast tract of land used to be a jungle inhabited by thousands of species of fauna and flora. Loss of habitat is one of the primary causes of species extinction. Imagine how many animals have died to make room for these trees? You will notice that nothing grows except the palm oil trees. Not a blade of grass, not a stray weed, and no animals can live in this inhospitable man-made forest.It is also interesting to see the tree up close and how the nuts are harvested.
Palm oil is used in almost all processed foods and in cosmetics.
