Most people in Honduras live in the north where most of the factories for work are located, but indigenous people and anyone else living in the rural areas deal with most of the effects of deforestation. When you remove large areas of forest the climate will begin to change and effect anyone living around it. Since Honduras is a poor country it is harder to protect yourself from environmental changes. Also, by deforestation the water sources they use are no longer protected and leave rural and urban areas without good drinking water. Illegal logging is still a rising problem, because those doing so are not having to pay taxes on sales to other countries, and this is taking away from all wood sellers in the Honduras community.
According to the article Tropical Forest In Our Daily Lives, the rainforest provides so much for us. Basically, the land would be used to give and provide not only us but others in need all around the world. Proving that they provide food, medicine, shelter, cleaning, cosmetics, and much more to those in need on our planet. Lastly, in the article Deforestation: Positive and Negative Consequences, it talks about the negative and positive consequence of deforestation. Some of the positive consequences talk about how deforestation allows the process of communities to built be possible and how the land could be used to be converted into a productive land for agricultural uses.
Evidence from Doc D, shows that over 100 million acres were harvested crops. How this was possible was advances in machinery. The tractor at the time was a new type of technology used to help farmers plant soil for crops. Since the soil was not watered because of the drought in the previous paragraph, this caused the soil to turn into dust. The third cause of the Dust Bowl was short grass prairie.
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?
Through geographical and social factors the Anasazi, migrated and settled. The Anasazi would usually consists of a migration pattern, this pattern would be that they settled in a place where theres resources and after some time they would leave and not come back until after about ten years.The Anasazi moved but didn 't really settled for a long time due to climate change, deforestation, agriculture and structure building. The depletion of the land resources was the main reason the Anasazi migrated a lot. The Anasazi were attracted to places that were moist, cool areas for dry farming. They usually farmed corn and beans.
During the period of deforestation, loggers and cultivators clear forest lands and convert them into agricultural lands to meet the increasing demand for food and raw materials of the economically growing nation. Then, agricultural expansion eventually stops. There are two forms of forest recovery after agricultural expansion. One is referred to as the “economic development path” and the other is the “forest scarcity path” (Rudel et al, 2005). The “economic development path” take place when agricultural expansion stops and farm workers look for higher paying non-farm jobs.
‘Deforestation refers to the cutting, clearing, and removal of rainforest or related ecosystems into less bio-diverse ecosystems such as pasture, cropland, or plantations.’ -Kricher (1997) Deforestation is the permanent effect of the destruction of forests to make space and land for other uses. Deforestation is the removal of all or most of the trees in a forest or forested area. It can damage the environment by causing many consequences. Around the size of 36 football fields is being cut down in this minute. The world 's highest rates of deforestation, a significant cause of global warming, are happening in the key emerging economies of Nigeria, Indonesia and Brazil.
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
As animals are forced out of their habitats, they either migrate to other areas or simply become extinct (Cerulli 2-4). A crop that has recently gained worldwide recognition is an example of how agriculture damages the land tremendously. Quinoa due to its “miracle qualities” has become a major cash crop in the world. As the demand rises, the more people want to grow this wonder crop. But since quinoa has been cultivated in southern america for decades, most of the production is limited.
As population continues to increase, forest will be cut down to create road and infrastructure to support the population. On top of that, food is also a limited resource to support the population, hence more forests are removed for agriculture purpose. Despite the society has raise the awareness of deforestation, the rate of deforestation is still on the rise. Plantation Another reason of deforestation is plantation, where forest is cleared to replant valuable crops for economic growth. One of which being the palm tree.
Indentures was a trade for something. It was an “eye for an eye”. The planters needed help farming and the servants needed food, shelter, and clothes so it was a fair exchange. This exchange was very important to the colony because they need income and the only way they were getting that at the time was through the tobacco farms. The only contradiction was indentured servants had to work four to seven years before they could be free again.
Their food, medicines and clothing come primarily from the forest. The Native Amazonians hunt, fish, and grow crops on small plots. When a field is no longer fertile, they clear a new one and leave the old one to be covered by the forest. They live there, work there, They do everything
Native Amazonians have been around longer than writing, they use the forest to survive (food, shelter, etc.) and I like to argue that, yes they are trying to save their forest but they also contribute to deforestation. If we want these people to continue living in their traditional manner in the rainforest and for us not to lose what used to be 14% of our earth’s land surface, we as people need to act and find other ways of surviving without rapid deforestation. To conclude, we know people aren’t doing much to replant trees at the same or faster rate than the deforestation process, based on the rate at which the rain forest has been deforested in the past 55 years, we know we’ve lost about 8% already and so we know we’re going to lose the forest within Forty Years, (no one expected that when they
Nationally, Congress passed bills such as the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) of 1983 in defense of certain protections of agricultural workers, including requiring agricultural employers to “post information about worker protections at the worksite” (U.S. Department of Labor). The MSPA theoretically maintains a standard for agricultural worksite safety. Yet, “in an industry notorious for poor working conditions,” agriculture’s labor shortages continue crippling Americans’ accessibility to fresh produce, “reducing fruit and vegetable production by 9.5%, or $3.1 billion, a year” (Brat). A more effective way of addressing agricultural labor shortage woes is to apply advances in farming machinery to mechanize the harvesting process. Mechanization involves using machinery to perform agricultural work, thus improving productivity (Valdya 6).
They grow some crops but rely more on hunting and gathering. They get many benefits from the forest like fresh soil for crops lots of animals in the forest to hunt. They benefit the world by be a historical part of it that has lived on for thousands of years and it also gives us another reason why not to take the forest down for wood products made for people 's wants not their needs. We should support the amazonians and how they use the rainforest because they have been there longer than us and survived without taking down any trees. They use straw in broken tree branches for their homes.
