If we continue cutting down forests then soon we will no longer have any forests. It is extremely unfortunate how over 50% of the world forests have been cut down. As a result animals are loosing their habituate and species are going extinct. Not only are animals effected but even humans and the rest of the environment. Rain forests and other forests produce most oxygen that we need.
Effects such as these can have unpredictable effects on the environment. The effect of reduced forest size has already had a measurable impact on the composition of our atmosphere in the relatively short amount of time we have been cutting them down(6). Ironically however it is the conversion of forest land to urban and agriculture use that has a more permanent and detrimental impact. Logging and urbanization lead to forest succession. Forest succession happens when there are changes to an environment that causes the composition of plant and animal species to change.
The world’s most expansive forest, the Amazon, is the site of the greatest projected loss of natural life-sustaining habitat and beauty due to deforestation which makes efforts to conserve the forest and save its defenseless inhabitants a critical priority and essential duty of our time. Deforestation affects the world in a negative way, with the most dramatic impact being the loss of habitat for millions of species. In fact, “80% of Earth’s land animals and plants live in forests.” (National Geographic Deforestation 1) Animals would lose shelter, food resources, and breeding area. Without an ample number of trees, the forests would lose its canopy which would cause extreme temperature
The Congo basin supports a large rainforest ecosystem, which contributes on a large scale to stable the world climate. But this ecosystem is endangered due to the vast wealth of resources and accompanied illegal mining activities, particularly in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Diverse case studies about Congo’s Kahuzi-Biega Park, Okapi Reserve and Virunga Park ascertain that deforestation, water pollution as well as hunting and poaching are the most common environmental impacts. Observations show that only approximately 20 % of mammals are still alive in some heritage areas. These impacts lead to a high loss of biodiversity and results in a dramatically change in rainforest ecosystem services.
It has affected the environment by have deforestation problems. Deforestation is when people remove and cut down trees for special purposes such as getting wood to make houses. As Rwanda is a land enveloped in lush green vegetation there are lots of trees being cut down it can affect the ani,mals there by not having food and die and when the animals die there will be less food for people to eat so that will affect people dieing because of hunger. This causes a cycle of so many death that is why it needs to be stopped. Rwanda has already made a ban of having no plastic bags as it is not biodegradable and it affects the environment by it bringing pollution problems which focused on a different thing.
Increasing proportions of deforestation is because of industrial activities and large scale agriculture. By the beginning of the 2000’s more than three quarters of forest clearing was for cattle farming Illegal logging is a main cause of deforestation in the vicious cycle of rainforest destruction. This is when farmers remove valuable timber from areas that they have illegally occupied. This results in land grabbers building roads that lead into untouched parts of the Amazon which opens more doors into the wonders and exposes the forest to exploitation and destruction without even a second thought or an understanding of the damage being done and the consequences of these
They impact The combination of selective logging and wildfire damage turns these once lush rainforests into measly scrubs of smaller trees and vines, which stores 40 percent less carbon than undisturbed forests. It’s important because if the 40% keeps growing more and more every year then the time we know it the rainforest will be gone. Loggers don’t just cut down trees they also make roads in the rainforest, also they also clear areas for farmers and cattle ranchers, which needs a lot of land to feed lots of cows and plants that need space because of their roots. When loggers cut down trees what will happens to all the animals that live in the trees? The animals will have to find a new home in the rainforest, but then what will happen when all the trees are gone?
Therefore, a big problem we have now is deforestation of the Amazon. People harm this environment and this affects our climate. People illegally cut down trees in the Amazon, harming the economy. The influence of the Amazon is so great that there is even a preservation law to prevent deforestation in Brazil (according to WWF International). As you can see, people are worried about our Amazon Rainforest and are trying to preserve it as best they can to further help our
Also, I think we'll be a magnet for climate refugees or migrants and we'll strain to deal with the numbers of people who may want to come here. Domestically, the effects of sea level rise will be a growing issue, and the costs of adapting could be large, with more frequent floods, and droughts that damage agricultural production. The difference between gross and net is explained by cutting down trees, basically. Our "sinks" of CO2 have decreased as forests have shrunk. Our sources have grown mostly from transport and industry.
