Deforestation- A Life on the edge
Deforestation- A Life on the edge
forests on the planet earth are facing the biggest clearing in the history of
mankind, affecting the quality of land miserably. It is estimated that the
world will be without any rain forests in the next 100 years if the current
rate of deforestation is continued.
people only used to cut forest for the purpose of farming and acquiring more
space for crops and livestock. With the passage of time, the manufacturers
began bigger activity of deforestation for producing wood and paper products to
meet the requirements of the rapidly increasing population on the surface of
advancement has caused the huge increase of solid jungles over decades and
destroyed the face of green planet. Deforestation is happening the world over
so as to acquire space for various purposes.
influencing the nature in a worst possible way. The entire environment is
polluted and destabilized. And there is an ever increasing number of floods are
being watched every year and harm the living regions and loss of property and
The environmental change is another
reason for this problem in the regions where the clay is moist. However, when
the covering trees are vanished, the direct warmth from sun isn't blocked and
thus it rapidly dries out and water vaporizes and comes back to atmosphere.
An ever increasing number of industries
are mushrooming everywhere throughout the world, consistently around 18 million
acres of land of land is deforested resulting in environment becoming more and
more polluted. The air pollution is increasing day by day which is influencing
the general health of all the living things including human, animals and
Burning and clear cutting of trees is a
regular practice and declared illegal in numerous regions of the world. However,
suitable measures are not being taken which is resulting into unstable weather conditions.
swings of changes in weather conditions
are being observed from the past 50 years where heavy rain falls, land
sliding, barren lands have been increased. Natural habitat of different species
of animals is badly affected, more and more birds and animals have been
migrated or died as there is huge lack of favorable conditions. The
population of different animals is being reduced day by day while some of them
are even on the brink of extinction.
From the past 50 years, there have been
an unpredictable swings of changes in weather conditions and the heavy rain
fall, land sliding, barren lands have been increased. As a result, the natural
habitat of different species is gravely influenced, and an increasing number of
birds and animals have migrated or died as there is an absence of favorable
conditions. The population of various species is being decreased day by day
while some of them are even on the verge of extinction.
Mankind is not only responsible for this
deforestation, nature and human beings collectively harm the forests. Rapid
fires, floods, over-gazing are the other main causes of deforestation. There
are solutions to prevent such big disasters from happening and saving these
tropical and rain forests for future generations. Appropriate planning of
cutting trees is fundamental, but then again as explained in a study, “number
of trees planted should be multiplied by the quantity of trees cut in
The government and the people should take
steps to plant more and more trees to cater the problems arising from
deforestation. If one specific area has to be cleared for some purpose, at least
the same number of trees should be planted in some adjacent zones. Governments
around the world should formulate and implement more effective laws to control
the illicit practices of deforestation. The cutting of trees should be adjusted
by planting younger trees in urban zones and empty lands. Only this will save
the planet earth and make our future generations safer and healthier.
