Alan Thornett (pictured with a trophy eel in 1949) writes:
The most disastrous consequence, of today's environmental crisis, is the catastrophic collapse of global biodiversity. This is now recognised as the greatest extinction event our planet has faced since the demise of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. We ignore it at our peril, since we cannot survive without the millions of other species that live alongside us.

Power, illegality and impunity in Indonesia's plantation zone

LI Tania

“Please tell me how I can make companies obey the law,” the official said.
He was exasperated by the companies whose oil palm plantations saturated the sub-district he headed in Indonesian Borneo. Their managers refused to give him information, address complaints or even come to his office when called, he told me and my co-researcher Pujo Semedi.
His complaint was not unusual. Semedi and I were studying everyday life in what we called the “plantation zone”—part of the vast swathe of rural (...)
