Common speaking, deforestation is a type of clearing
or permanent destruction of large area of indigenous forests and woodlands.
Human being do so to make the land available for other uses but ignored
the effect of deforestation that will result in damaging the quality of lands.
Do you know, forests are actually cover 31% land area of our planet, which is
very important to all the living things to maintain good living. Forests
produced vital oxygen and habitat for lots of species of wildlife. When
deforestation arise, many of them lost their living place and start to compete
with each other. If the situation even worse, wildlife may also attack people. Some
examples of deforestation are that, conversion of forestland to farms, ranches,
or urban use. Hence, the most concentrated deforestation happens in tropical
forests. Tropical rain forests are useful and helpful for us. It is a huge
store of carbon, it can conserve soil nutrients, prevent large scales of erosion
and it is large gene pool of plant resources. So, if deforestation take place
at tropical rain forests, there are many obstructive effect present to damage
our ecosystem and living style. Unfortunately, deforestation on a major scale
has been occurring in both developed and developing countries since about 1700
when it is estimated that forests covered as much as 4.5 billion hectares of
the planet. Data from Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation
(UNFAO) show that between year 1990 and 1995, forest cover reduce by 56.3
million hectares. This mean that an average worldwide rate of reduce of 11.3
million hectares a year, four times greater than earlier rate. For fun fact, an
area the size of a soccer football pitch is cleared from the Amazon rainforest every minute, with 136 million acres
of rainforest cleared for animal agriculture overall. Not only legal cut down the
trees, there are also a lot of illegal deforestation happened in our planet. Furthermore,
deforestation can cause global warming. (Refer Appendix 2.1). Deforestation
cause the amount of carbon dioxide released to atmosphere higher than the sum
of total of cars and truck in the world’s road. According to the World Carfree
Network (WCN), cars and trucks account for 14% of global carbon emission, while
most analysts attribute upward of 15% to deforestation.
