Cadbury ‘pushing orangutans towards extinction by wrecking habitat for palm oil’

  • The maker of Cadbury chocolate bars, Oreo biscuits and Ritz crackers is accused of destroying tens of thousands of hectares of orangutan habitat in just two years for palm oil.
  • The new investigation, carried out through mapping Indonesia, discovered that between 2015 and 2017, 22 of the company’s palm oil suppliers cleared at least 70,000 hectares of rainforest – an area bigger than the City of Chicago, where Mondelez is based.
  • In September this year Greenpeace International published Final Countdown, a report that showed Mondelez was sourcing palm oil from 22 of 25 destructive producer groups.

Sessions 'confident' Mueller probe will be handled 'appropriately'

  • Sessions' successor at the Justice Department, Matthew Whitaker, has faced criticism for his previous comments arguing that Mueller's investigation goes too far.
  • Despite his past comments, however, Whitaker appears unlikely to recuse himself from overseeing the investigation.
  • Sessions told the Journal that if given a second chance, he would still recuse himself from the probe despite the decision angering President Donald Trump.
  • "No one is above supervision," he told the Journal.
  • Sessions was fired as attorney general with a call from Trump's chief of staff John Kelly on Wednesday afternoon.
  • Sessions' last day was busy but routine -- until Kelly's unexpected call just prior to Trump's 11:30 a.m., post-election news conference, he told the Journal.
  • He declined to comment on his discussions with White House officials about his ouster.
  • Sessions told the Journal he has no concrete future plans.
