Agricultural production, economic activities and deforestation add more atmospheric CO2 than the sum total of cars and trucks on the world’s roads. According to the World Carfree Network (WCN), vehicles contribute 14 percent of global CO2 emissions, while others touch the peak. The reason that cutting the trees is so bad for climate is that when trees are felled down, they release the carbon which mix up with the other greenhouse gases and account for global warming. The environmental defense fund, a current leading green group, 32 million acres of tropical rainforests were cut down per year between 2000 to 2009, and in recent it exceeded. The destruction of trees can cause climate instability, desertification, soil erosion, fewer crops, loss of habitat for the species, flooding, increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, decrease the water on atmosphere, and the host of troubles for the humanity.
Deforestation loses the 70 percent of the world’s biotic shelter. The most frightening impact is that we lose the animals and plant species due to their loss of habitat. 70 percent of ground animals and plant creatures live in the forest. Not only deforestation threatens species known to us, but also those of the unseen. The trees of the forests not only provide shelter for the majority species as also it provides the canopy which regulates the temperature within it. Deforestation results irregular variations from day to day, much like a desert, which could helpless the survival.
Disturbance of forests disturbs the cyclic circle of water. The trees that help to sustain the water level in the atmosphere by helping to regulate the water cycle. In the deforested areas, there found least water drops in the air to be returned to the soil. The dryer soil causes the inability to grow crops, and less productivity, higher demand, but no soul cares about the united future. As an injury to one as injury to whole humankind, because each creature sacrifices itself with the flow of dehydration.
Soil erosion drinks the food on our planet, increases the coastal flooding, and results in earthquake. Trees help the ground to retain water and topsoil that provides the rich nutrients to maintain additional forest life. The absence of forest erodes the top soil, eradicate the fertility, causing farmers to leave and perpetuate the cycle. The barren land which is left behind in the wake of these unsustainable agricultural practices, and then loss of forests.
Lastly, destruction of forests not only harm the own category, but also destabilizes the entire cyclic flow of food, water, and air system of the universe. “Unless we change the present system that rewards forest destruction, forest clearing will put another 200 billion tons in coming decades.” The nature still humbles us to establish the environment, otherwise, we hot ourselves in the ground.
