The author states that salvage logging is beneficial both to damaged forest and to the economy and provides three reasons. In contrast, the professor states that this can result with environmental damage and it 's economical benefit is also questionable and she opposes each of the author 's reasons.
The government has passed many conservation policies to protect animals, eco-systems, plants and trees itself and indigenous people’s way of life, but many of these policies get overlooked and require a lot of extra work. How it affects the rest of the world- This action is permanent, and all of the world is targeted as a potential setting for deforestation. It is predicted that the continuing action may result in very few rainforest across the entire globe. Cutting trees can also be harmful to our ozone layer, which protects earth from dangerous radiation.
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?
IMPACTS OF GLOBAL WARMING ON THE ENVIRONMENT SLINDILE.C MAZIBUKO 215011983 UNIVERSITY OF KWAZULU NATAL WESTVILLE CAMPUS DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA ABSTRACT One of the biggest problems facing the world today is global warming. It is evident that there is climate change around the world. In recent years, we have so many unusual hurricanes, typhoons, floods, droughts and earthquakes. Plants and animals that lived in the cold climates are now disappearing.
A solution to this problem is to make a set of rules and laws to help protect the trees. Implementing these restrictions would force people to leave the trees alone because it would be against the law to harm the trees. It would automatically lessen the amount of trees lost because people would not want to break the law when there are other options. People focus on the economic gain deforestation, which encourages them to start illegally logging. If organizations and the government could enforce these laws, it would greatly decrease the number of trees being cut down.
1. Even though fracking reduces carbon emissions, it is still harmful to the environment. For example: water pollution/contamination. There can be accidental seeping of the chemicals (possibly carcinogenic) and can contaminate groundwater around the site due to bad practice (this imposes harm to both the ecosystem and people 's health).
Deforestation: Good or Bad? By Tristan McDermott (Final Copy) Deforestation is a controversial environmental issue, with some people believing that it is necessary to cut down trees to make room for things such as buildings and roads, while others believe that it is bad because it is destroying the environment. I believe that deforestation, while it does have a few positive effects, mainly has negative effects that massively outweigh the positive effects. According to an article written by National Geographic, (https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/global-warming/deforestation/) deforestation is a major contributor to global warming: “Trees also play a critical role in absorbing the greenhouse gases that fuel global warming.
By talking about actions (or organisms) like invasive species, climate change, CO2 emissions, and habitat fragmentation, Kolbert argues that these heavily human driven deeds are causing a negative impact on the species around us. Due to these occurrences and many more, humans have put the Earth in a dangerous position. Thankfully, there are actions that can be taken to save our planet, but we need to get started now. These actions lead up to very extreme, which includes tampering with our atmosphere or even building new civilizations on other planets or the moon. However crazy these actions may seem, it's unreal to think that us humans have caused the problem that is leading to these drastic
Introduction Mining is the extraction or removal of minerals and metals from the Earth, and the world market is expanding for mineral commodities. Chrome, cooper, coal, diamonds, gold, iron, manganese, nickel, silver, and zinc are just some examples of what is mined (Blight, 2011, p. 77). Mining is a money generating business that flourishes, in addition to governments receiving money from mining revenues; however, the effects of mining are often very damaging to the environment. As one of the foremost contributors of deforestation, trees and vegetation are cleared or burned, for the purpose of mining. Mount Polley Incident and Environmental Impact
It occurs due to rise in global warming which occurs due to increase in temperature of atmosphere by burning of fossils fuels and release of harmful gases by industries. Climate change has various harmful effects but not limited to melting of polar ice, changes in seasons, occurrence of new diseases, frequent occurrence of floods and change in overall weather scenario. • Loss of Biodiversity: Human activity is leading to the extinction of species and habitants and loss of bio-diversity. Eco systems, which took millions of years to perfect, are in danger when any species population is decimating. Balance of natural processes like pollution is crucial to the survival population is decimating.
Sarah K. Castle, in her science fiction “The Mutant Stag at Horn Creek” develops the story to tell the nature-culture hybrids and its effect on human-kind and other creatures. The story sets in one location called “Horn Creek” and the main character “Sue” a park ranger and a narrator of the story. The author shows the effect of human meddling with natures at the very beginning of the story. A “Grand Canyon” which is the story plays had been mined and it starts to be closed for visitors and Horn Creek was one of them. In this fiction author is more about to say that humankind intervention in nature is the reason for the natural world disaster.

Hence, deforestation increases. This is another effect of overpopulation that impacts the worsening of the environment . For example decreased forest size increases the amount of carbon in the environment. More specifically, deforestation affects the wildlife and results in biodiversity loss and species extinction .
With deforestation being one of these roles because when we chop down these trees and plants of where animals habitats our it also releases a lot of carbon dioxide into the air. And if you didn’t know forests are major carbon storage centers, when deforestation happens all the carbon dioxide that is stored in these forests; is released back into the atmosphere. Deforestation not only contributes to changes in the climate, it also causes localized changes in the weather. Trees transpire, or release water into the atmosphere, during photosynthesis. This water replenishes clouds and maintains rainfall.
