We should take deforestation very seriously and immediately start putting bans and regulations on it before it is too late. The effects we have seen from deforestation so far have been very bad and destructive. This should be enough for people to realize how bad deforestation is hurting our environment. The effects of deforestation should be shown more to the public so they will realize this is a concern that needs attention. And the fact is that deforestation will affect all of us later on.
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 means to cut down a big amount of trees, which results in damage to the quality of the land. Forests cover 30% of the earth's land, but are lost every year. The rainforest could disappear in about a hundred years because of the existing rate of deforestation. There are many reasons why forests are cut down the main reason is money or the demand of people’s needs for them and their family. The main reason for deforestation is agriculture.
They keep the air and water clean, prevent erosion and flooding, enrich soil, make harness homes for animals, plants and bring aesthetic beauty to a place. It is essential that destructive actions such as deforestation have to be stopped. Deforestation in the Philippines mainly caused logging and agriculture expansion has brought forth great devastation not only in the country alone, but to the world as well. Animals have been stripped from their source of shelter which brings greater destruction. Without their natural habitat they are left weak and prone to extinction.
Swidden farming is a well known practice and is used by many loggin... ... middle of paper ... ... disrupt the well being of innocent bystanders. The overuse of chemicals and the act of burning will make the soil hard, leading to the growth of trees to slowly decrease and the labour to maintain and harvest will rise. Finally trees will run out for large scale industries. The Indonesian government is the main issue and must be dealt with first to be able to make any real changes. Once the corruption disappears, civilians will have better standards in living and, the logging industry will be more controlled.
These soils are reddish in colour and contain high levels of aluminium and iron, and resist leaching. Nutrients from decomposing organisms... ... middle of paper ... ...a home for people, whether farmer or tribal man. To conclude, the destruction of rain forests has continued to increase over the years; losing approximately 80 acres per minute every day and night (Medine 1). Despite efforts by some governments, national parks, natives and environmentalists the rain forests disappear at alarming rates. The benefits of the destruction will not last forever.
We live in a deteriorating world, one that is finite, yet we treat it as infinite. People live so carelessly that “between 10 percent and 30 percent of all mammal, bird and amphibian species are threatened with extinction.” (Lowy, 2005) Deforestation ravishes the world taking billions of trees away yearly, leaving the earth with little to no replenishment. The deforestation of the world needs to end. As the caretakers of God’s creation, the people of the world need to purposefully make preserving the environment a priority. We need to come up with new solutions to decrease deforestation.
Many different deforestation techniques could be used and I believe that everyone should be aware and execute the right way of deforestation. What is deforestation? There are many answers to this question but the definition that most people would use is, “the removal of a forest or stand of trees where the land is thereafter converted to a non-forest use.” (Wikipedia) This is exactly true considering humans for years have been cutting down forested areas in order to build towns/cities and clearing space for agriculture usage. Doing these kinds of thing have negative affects to the climate and atmosphere because without the forest trees around, there isn’t anything around that helps absorb some of the carbon from the atmosphere. Not all deforestation methods have negative effects, when cutting down trees properly and replanting trees, there would be some sort of balance in keeping the forest alive and while those cut down trees for resources.
Due to human expansions, many animals are on their way to extinction, it’s our job as human to protect these species from extinction. Some animals become endangered when human take over their habitats, which usually happens when a group of people want to have more resources in a specific area. Deforestation in the amazon rainforest, for example cutting the trees to make a good quality housing stuffs and constructions, or making papers. This will cause many species to leave those areas and reduce the population. It’s known that these materials are important for living and farming but people should not over extend their farms or resource areas.
The continual deforestation of virgin forests will lead to the loss of the homes of a variety of animal species. This could lead to the loss of entire species. Drought and famine are more likely to follow suit. The organizations ought to enlighten the government officials on these dangers that follow degradation of the environment. If this does not raise enough alarm to these politicians, the churches voting capacity ought to capture their attention.
