Multinational networks and the exploitment of natural resources in developing countries Multinational networks and the exploitment of natural resources in developing countries
A generalized diagram of how multinational networks exploit and natural resources in developing countries through numerous temporary subsidiaries and the use of corruption and security firms to ensure rapid exploitation and maximum profits - but still having their hands 'clean'. Arms trading has been reported from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, while the bribes and 'security firms' also play a major role in Indonesia.

Indonesian exports of forest products Indonesian exports of forest products
Exports of wood products from Indonesia, with final destinations such as China, Japan and North America. Almost three quarters of the wood end in destinations in Asia. In the black market, with illegal timber, the products are known to change country of origin and their labeling and classification as they are smuggled.

Two scenarios for biofuels by 2030 Two scenarios for biofuels by 2030
Biodiesel is produced from oil, which can be sourced from oil seed crops such as rapeseed, soy bean, sunflower or jatropha and from waste oil such as cooking oil. Water and other contaminants are removed from the oil and the fatty acid content present in the oil is separated and ransformed. Biodiesel can be blended with conventional diesel in vehicles, usually in a 5 per cent blend (B5).In some countries it is sold in blends up to 20 per cent (B...

World Greenhouse gas emissions by sector World Greenhouse gas emissions by sector
All data is for 2000. All calculations are based on CO2 equivalents, using 100-year global warming potentials from the IPCC (1996), based on a total global estimate of 41 755 MtCO2 equivalent. Land use change includes both emissions and absorptions. Dotted lines represent flows of less than 0.1% percent of total GHG emissions.
