Stop Arnold Schwarzenegger from terminating rain forests
Action Alert - Friday, May 23, 2014 

The first mass-media program to highlight the rain forest destruction driven by palm oil, Years of Living Dangerously, is a great show. But behind the scenes, one of the show’s star producers, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is profiting from forest destruction as part-owner and a major client of Dimensional Fund Advisors, a money manager with nearly a billion dollars in logging and palm oil companies — the very same ones that are burning and bulldozing the forests of Southeast Asia, threatening rural communities and some of the last wild populations of orangutans, rhinos and tigers. Urge Schwarzenegger to terminate his ties to rainforest destruction. ~ Friends of the Earth
