David John Nilsson is a self-confessed Carbon Cowboy, who according to "60
Minutes" reporter Liam Bartlett, is behind one of the most brazen and
potentially disastrous scams he has ever come across. Previous to being
reborn as a Carbon Cowboy, David Nilsson was a real estate broker in Australia
was accused in Parliament of selling non-existent plots of land in
Queensland and of
to have the support of government officials.
In addition, he operates an alleged
"become a millionaire scam" in Queensland called Refund Real Estate
Group, presumably with the support of his wife,
Polly Lau (aliases Ling Man Lau and Liu Lingwen). Now David Nilsson has popped up in the Amazon Rainforest, where the new
carbon trading market has opened up huge opportunities for scams disguised as
carbon projects and he now falsely claims that his new company, Amazon Holdings
Limited, has the support of the United Nations. Basically what Carbon Cowboys do is falsely promise

David Nilsson. These
unscrupulous carpetbaggers plan on logging old growth forests,
and replacing the native rainforest with environmentally disastrous palm oil plantations.
Monocultures of palm oil trees devastate the Amazon Rainforest, destroying the
biodiversity of the forest and causing the extinction of endangered plant and
animal species. Unfortunately, due to potentially large profits,
palm oil is being promoted by
large corporations and international aid organizations. To make matters
worse, recent legislation in Peru
has given economic incentives to plant palm oil plantations. Scientific studies have shown that palm oil plantations dramatically
increase the incidence of malaria in the Amazon, resulting in the increased
mortality of indigenous Amazonians. At present,
carbon cowboys and palm oil
represent an enormous threat to the survival of the Amazon Rainforest and its
