It is one of the most threats facing the nation, however, it can be argued that it has both the good and the bad impacts on the nation. Prominent believe that global warming is caused by human activities and various forms of polluting, on the other hand the opponent disagree on this issue concerning global warming. This essay will argue about the threats of global warming and actions that may be taken to try to alleviate its effects. Cutting down of trees and deforestation causes global warming. When more and more trees are cut, only few of them are left and those trees take up the carbon dioxide. Deforestation is when trees are cut and burnt, and this during this process, the carbon dioxide is released into the air. Deforestation has many negative effects on the environment. The most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species. Seventy percent of Earth’s land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes. The more workable solution is to carefully manage forest resources by eliminating clear-cutting to make sure that forest environments remain intact.
