in Brazil is well known across hundreds of nations all over the
world. Deforestation in Brazil has been around for centuries and
has a very important meaning in the lives of many. Rainforests have
decreased in size primarily due to deforestation. In 2002, the
Amazon was approximately 5.4 million square kilometers, which is
only 87 percent of the Amazon's original state (Mongabay 1).
Deforestationhas a negative effect in
change, animals and their habitats and erosion patterns, which is
leading people to campaign for a deforestation free future.
Climate change is due to an increase in the average atmospheric temperature. "As habitat destruction trends interact with climate change, the concern is that the Amazon will be caught up in a set of feedback loops that show more content
Brazil once was an area full with an abundance of trees, today only six percent remains. Deforestation is so dangerous because much of the carbon dioxide that all countries produce is turned into oxygen in the rainforests. (Taylor 4). Twenty percent of the earths oxygen is produced in the Brazilian rainforests, trees help us and cutting them down reduces our oxygen and increases carbon dioxide.
It is estimated that ninety percent of all animal and plant species live in the Brazilian rainforestso extinction is another major issue. There are several ways and reasons for which rainforests are destroyed. The major cause of deforestation is logging. The forest is more valuable for its timber so its preservation would cost so much money (Wallace 1). Commercial loggers destroy huge parts of the forest to reach the trees they want. When trees get cut down they do not come alone, their vines follows them. The removal of the trunks cause extra damage since they are carelessly pulled out of the rainforest, destroying and damaging anything in their path.
