Deforestation in tropical rainforests adds more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than all of the cars and trucks combined. According to the World Carfree Network (WCN), cars and trucks take up about fourteen percent of global carbon emissions combined, while deforestations takes up to more than twenty percent. The reason that burning and cutting down trees is bad for the climate is that trees release the toxic that they’re storing into the atmosphere when they are cut down, therefore, contributing to global warming. According to the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), thirty-two million acres of tropical rainforests were cut down between the year 2000 and 2009, yet, the pace of deforestation is still increasing. “Unless we change the present system that rewards forest destruction, forest clearing will put another 200 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere in coming decades [...]” (Environmental Defense Fund). Tropical forests help adjust rainfall and prevent both floods and droughts. Limiting deforestation is not only a beneficial action against global warming, it also can make important benefactions to saving biodiversity and supporting a stable world.

The importance of the environment appears when many disconcerting events throughout the years have emerged: tsunami and flooding, drought and starving, pollution, declining animal populations and many others. Looking behind these events is make us realize that we have caused irreversible damaged, through our daily behaviors.
Imagine taking a look outside and not see anymore trees. The once thick and abundant forests completely gone. The beauty of nature completely wiped out. Imagine all the animals we know today not being around anymore. The animals that we take for granted and don't think twice about.This is all because of deforestation. Deforestation is the the act of clearing a wide area of trees. Deforestation comes in many forms, including fires, clear-cutting for agriculture, ranching and development, unsustainable logging for timber, and degradation due to climate change.(----) At the rate at which deforestation is occurring the later generations might never get to experience and see these luxuries. Some 46-58 thousand square miles of forest are lost each year—equivalent to 48 football fields every minute.(---) Deforestation also has many other effects on the planet. things The environmental costs of deforestation can include species extinction, erosion, flooding, reduced land productivity, desertification, and climate change and increased atmospheric carbon dioxide. As more habitat is destroyed, more species face extinctions.(“Deforestation” 3) In today’s world, deforestation is a problem and should be put to an end.
A place without life is hardly even a place at all. The waves would flow over the oceans rocks, the sun would shine on the green leaves without prevail. The world builds with pollution, plants expand, and food virtually ends. In an environment, lacking the fundamentals of life, the existence of humans would experience complications of survival and health. The living cells of species provide a world of opportunity, health, and life. Over the last one hundred years, the population of endangered species has drastically risen. With the inadequate decisions regarding living species, the rate of endangered and threatened species will continue to increase. Through many different developments, species can be considered endangered or threatened and this condition can result from a multitude of factors and direct effects to the species. Groups, services, and organizations work together to protect these species through conservation practices and government assistance.
The only way to stop the manslaughter of endangered species is to have everyday people and governments take interest and action to save our environment and help endangered species by protecting them and their habitats. We need to stop the killing of animals and destruction of their habitats. Without meaningful governmental support to maintain the environment and save endangered species, we will not have a way or real means of stopping the extinction of animals. We need laws and penalties to stop the slaughter of animals. I picked to research the Bengal tiger which is an endangered species. “It is the most numerous of all tiger subspecies with more than 2,500 left in the wild.(worldwildlifepg1) ”.
Hi Christina! I agree with you that the global climate change is one of the most important issues in our society today. Many people deny this, but there are so many proofs that we cannot deny. For example, the pollution in the capital of China, Beijing, has change their lives. They have to wear mask on the street and they cannot see the sun very often. If we don't do something about our pollution, our earth might also end up like Beijing.
Every single year humans cut down at least 7.3 million hectares (18 million acres) of forest land. While cutting trees down allows for animals to graze and urbanization, all people should know how deforestation affects them and the world because many species of animals and natural medicines could be gone forever, there would be little to no oxygen filtration, and all rainforests could disappear in less than 100 years. As humans and animals, in general, they all require oxygen which is filtered by trees and plants but if they are being cleared so rapidly and ultimately harming the atmosphere when cut, people should not be slashing and occasionally burning these nonrenewable resources (51 Facts About Deforestation).
Global warming has been an increasing problem throughout the world. Over the years people have worried about the situation and tried to come up with ways to solve the situation. What exactly is global warming, and how could we stop it?
Every day we use paper, and every day we sit on or use furniture that is made of wood. Look around you, how many things are not made out of wood? Deforestation is the destruction or removal of forests. In fact, 50,000 trees are being cut down every minute. The issue deforestation links directly with the issues of air pollution, loss of animal habitats and climate change as well as several health problems. Deforestation can be solved if everyone helped, but not everyone has the same perspective. For example, some world leaders like Donald Trump do not believe that climate change is an issue, and a lot of people do not care about deforestation because they are unaware or because they do not care about anything beside themselves. I became interested in this topic after knowing that in countries where deforestation is a bigger issue, people are less healthy. Although Canada does not struggle with deforestation as much compared to China and the US, I do not want the same to happen.
Armrests are very critical to be at chairs where it helps to relax the shoulders, neck and back stress. Armrest could lead to minimizing the pressure on the body by providing good surface area to contact. Armrest should be adjustable in and out, as well as up and down. This allows for convenience and better control of comfort. Armrests shouldn’t be something hard like wood, because this would cause pain for the elbows. The degree at which the armrest lays at with the arm should be more than 90°.
Global Warming will continue to be a monstrous problem to be dealt with, when thinking of the future what needs to be considered is how long can the Earth keep sustaining life with little to no change. Change cannot happen overnight but, with nations working together to fix a common goal it is possible to put in motion a considerable change that will benefit the generations to come. Global warming cannot keep being put off, the risks are to great to ignore anymore, it is everyone’s problem therefore, it takes everyone to make the situation okay. Scientists need to keep raising awareness to get people to jump into action, the quicker the better. Politicians like Al Gore need to be more involved in the truth and facts surrounding climate change
Mike Huckabee once quoted; “The most important thing about global warming is this. Whether humans are responsible for the bulk of climate change is going to be left to the scientists, but it’s all our responsibility to leave this planet in better shape for the future generations than we found it.” I have travelled back in time to warn you guys that Global warming DOES exists. In fact, global warming is a huge issue. We need your help to take care of our planet for the sake of our future generations.
Global Warming is becoming a very important matter now that we recognize it as a threat and the temperature is still rising. Global warming has affected our ecosystems and put the world in a state of worry. Global Warming is the result of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane and the overuse of these gases. Global warming also can’t be eliminated because these gases will continue to lurk around in the earth’s atmosphere. Global warming is also a key role in ocean water levels rising due to the glaciers melting.
