His idea suggests that if the objective is good, then it doesn’t matter if the way we achieve it is bad, wrong, or evil. Why do people continue supporting deforestation? This question has many answers, but relies on a behavior problem, lack of respect, and necessity to survive, mostly from very low-income humans. The government allows deforestation to expand, and this creates the following main consequences: Disruption of hydrologic cycle, erosion of soil, loss of biodiversity, and the increase of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere. The tree is an essential element in the forest, yet ... ... middle of paper ... ... part of our world.

The land desertification can be a huge area and it is almost cannot be able to control. In addition, it is not only threatening the people and animals in the Amazon, the world is also threatened by deforestation. Thus, deforestation is one of the biggest problems in the world that people have to consider because it costs three main long term effects: land desertification, species extinction and climate transformation. The research paper will discuss and consider the long term negative effect in the Amazon rainforest which is caused by deforestation. First, the paper will present the cause and effect of land deforestation.
