This explains why the proposed EU biofuels directive threatens rainforest and peatlands in South East Asia

A really excellent clip from a recent More 4 (part of UK Channel 4 network) news programme is available at the link below. Broadcast on February 19th, it explains why the proposed EU biofuels directive threatens rainforest and peatlands in South East Asia, and WHY drained peatlands create absolutely massive carbon emissions that add significantly to the global total of carbon in the atmosphere and hence to climate change. It uses simple graphics to explain these issues very clearly.
