The Amazon Rainforest trees provide the air that we need and the trees are been cut down which means we will have less oxygen in the atmosphere and more carbon dioxide. Eventually, all living things die. Deforestation increases the amount of carbon dioxide in the air because when the trees die they release carbon dioxide in the air. Native tribes rely on the trees for shelter and medicine. If the people living in the Amazon rainforest breath all the carbon dioxide in the air they will at some point get sick and die because they have little medication.
Rain forests and other forests produce most oxygen that we need. By cutting down the trees for our own needs we are selfishly and slowly killing the world, but there are ways people could fix their mistakes before it is too late.

The deforestation in the Brazilian rainforest first began in 1970. The rate of deforestation has only increased rapidly since then. Rain forests cover over 30% of Earth’s land.

This explains how Haitians are scared of having another devastating natural disaster and they know that their government won’t do anything for the affects and will do anything to avoid it. Not only does Haiti have poor infrastructure in the sense of roads, buildings and more but it effects their water which is potentially deadly.
NAFTA needs to address the conflicts that Mexican farmers are facing because a large portion of Mexican farmers are losing their jobs, making sacrifices, and stressing their lands causing environmental problems. When NAFTA took place in Mexico, an estimated 1.43 million farmers lost their jobs. After NAFTA removed tariffs, maize and other types of grain were exported at a cheaper cost than their actual worth. As a result, Mexico highly imports American corn rather than buying from their own farmers.
