A Biography of E.O. Wilson, the Scientist Who Foresaw Our Troubles
Wilson is a scientist who celebrates the wonder of nature. He popularized the term “biophilia,” defining it as the love for the natural world and “‘the rich, natural pleasure that comes from being surrounded by living organisms.” He eventually became an activist, one of the few scientists who dared to leave the comfort and security of the ivory tower. The trigger was, Rhodes explains, a report in the late 1970s, published by the U.S. National Research Council, which stated that the world was losing one species a day, rather than one a year as most biologists had previously believed. Rhodes describes how Wilson made it his mission to create public awareness of this mass extinction and loss of biodiversity. Wilson rallied fellow scientists, wrote articles and books, lectured and tried to convince others of his cause. He also underlined the importance of field biology. How can we hope to save species from extinction, Wilson asked, if we don’t even know them?

Oxfam study: Climate Collapse Unstoppable Without Social Change

Share of the rich in carbon dioxide emissions increases again significantly. It is not "overpopulation" but excessive consumption by the upper percent that is driving global warming.


That could go in this thread.

I looked for a list of companies.  Unsuccessfully.

Ecopetrol, the Colombian state-owned, publicly traded (EC.n) oil & gas company exploits a large heavy oil deposit in the Llanos basin named Campo Rubiales.  Much deep ground water is lifted with the oil.  That water is processed and then used to irrigate palm tree plantations in the relatively dry Savannah of the Llanos which lies in a rain shadow east of the Andes. 

Relatively little forest would have been removed for these Palm trees plantations.  The irrigation with deep processed water would likely increase the carbon sink potential of the area.  Social license is key to success in places like Colombia and I do not recall any local opposition to the Palm tree plantations. They would create employment opportunities for some local people.

When these palm oil plantations are carved out of more humid forests  the overall ecological outcomes can be very different.  Or so is my impression.
