There are several negative effects of deforestation, it causes habitat destruction for several species in the area. Alternatives to this this mass devastation to nature include the use of hemp for paper products, and reusing areas already
Effects of Deforestation The subject of deforestation and the effects that it has on the environment have been heavily debated for a long time; particularly over the last few years. Governments and large lumber companies see large profits in the mass deforestation of forests and state that their actions are having few, if any, harmful effects on the environment. Most people disagree with this and think that the environmental effects are devastating and will become irreversibly disastrous in the very near future. Whether or not the pros outweigh the cons will be hotly debated for years to come but the fact is that deforestation is harmful to the environment and leads to declining wildlife populations, drastic changes in climate and loss of soil. The loss of forests means the loss of habitats for many species.
On the other hand, environmentalists think using too much forests or natural resources for any demands or commodities will impact native animals and plants life. Animals and plants habitat will be extinct soon if we still do cutting off the trees space in the world. First of all, deforestation is one of the biggest issues in the world. There are many problems as the result of deforestation. First impact is pollution gases, these gases will be affect the atmosphere in the world because trees always absorb carbon dioxide gas which is really benefit for trees (National Geographic, n.d., pp.
It is scary to think about the consequences we may suffer. Once all of these magnificent forests are gone the green house gas levels will increase and we also don’t know all of the harmful effects that this may cause. We need to do everything possible to develop a way to better manage the destruction of our rainforest before it is to late! Summary As our population grows every year, we lose very valuable resources. People are continuously reducing the biodiversity of our planet.
Deforestation should be banned Deforestation is an issue all over the world. It harmfully affects everything in a way or other, including the ecosystem, human beings, and the animals that live in the forests. The outcomes of cutting down thousands of trees increases as human beings increase in their population, and the long-term results can be shocking as more and more species of animals become endangered. I have three reasons why deforestation should be banned. Firstly, Deforestation cause loss of habitat for millions of species.
Deforestation in the Amazon rainforest can affect biodiversity in many different ways. Trees are removed for many reasons such as more farmland, wood products and much more. The results of this are very negative upon the species living in the rainforest. Some species lose their habitat and can’t survive. With species of plants and animals dying due to deforestation, the biodiversity of the area decreases.
Flooding can add to the profound impact clearing rainforests have on individuals. Many people’s lives and homes are lost due to the soil and roots not being able to contain as much water. Because the land can’t be reused, countries that rely on Brazil’s exports aren’t able to meet their demands and there is an increase in supply insecurity (Hyder 17). Also, once a species is gone, it is gone for good. Destroying plants reduces the variety of prospective drugs available and medicinal potential that could be possible cures ("Deforestation Facts, Deforestation Information, Effects of Deforestation”).
“Some 46-58 million square miles of forest are lost each year- equivalent to 36 f... ... middle of paper ... ... away the sense of protection those many woods provide animals with. It is as if their homes are being ripped away from them for the selfish use of humans. Deforestation also has an impact on the climate. “15% of all greenhouse gas emissions are the result of deforestation” (WWL). This is harmful to the climate as this leaves more carbon dioxide in the air.
Forming an issue Issue: Land Degradation Concern: land degradation, which is essentially erosion of the soil not only deteriorate the land but also causes several other complications in the nature that impacts the ecosystem and in turn humans. The major concern is relating to the food supply that these grounds cultivate. Causes: land degradation is caused by a number of reasons. To outline a couple would be coupled with human development. The major causes are deforestation in an effort to grow more food for the increasing number of population; overgrazing, agriculture that destroys the arable land beyond repair; industrialization are some of the major causes of land degradation.
There are major issues that are causing species to become extinct and hurt our way of life and other animals do to the change in food chain. Many of the issues of biodiversity loss can be traced back to human interaction to the environment. One of the issues is alteration and loss of habitats. A lot of this issue is based on the destruction of habitats and for the land to be used for human consumption. The land is either used up for agricultural use or for neighborhoods.
