Postcard – Peatland loss fuels climate change
Climate mitigation and adaptation
The title of this postcard is “Peatland loss fuels climate change”. It is a cartoon showing the conversion of peatlands into palm oil plantation, which causes the release of CO2 through burning practices as well as oxidation of the peat soil from the deforestation and drainage. The palm oil company employee has his pockets filled with dollars, stating “We plant oil palm to save the climate, and get REDD and biofuels subsidies”.
