Deforestation
By: Sara Al ajrami

The Issue
Deforestation is clearing Earth's forest on a massive scale
Forest land covers 30% of the world's land area, but swaths the size of panama are lost each year
The world's rainforest could completely vanish in a 100 years if it stays at the same rate of deforestation
Point of view #1
This is the rainforest resident's point of view is that loggers are chopping down the trees that make up their home
They're scaring away their food by the machines that cut down trees
They don't know what they'd do when they have to leave the forest
An advantage is that they can still live in their forest if we decrease the amount of cutting trees
A disadvantage is that they have few foods to eat, and their home is being destroyed
Point of view #2
Loggers don't think that deforestation is that bad
They cut down trees to provide supplies for their families
It's their job
Loggers state that the people against deforestation don't do anything about it except for complaining
An advantage is that they're supplying their families
A disadvantage is that they don't like that people are complaining about their job
Solutions
The quickest solution is to stop cutting down trees
Another solution is to manage forests resources by eliminating clear cutting to make sure that forest environment remain intact
The cutting that does occur has to be balanced by planting of enough young trees to replace the older ones
Another solution would be to plant more plant life, ex. bushes
I think that the best solution is to manage clear cutting and to balance the amount of trees we cut by the number of trees we plant
Because we don't just take, we also give back
Causes
The biggest thing causing deforestation is agriculture
Farmers cut down forests to provide room for their crops and plants to grow
Logging operations provide us wood and paper products, by cutting down countless trees each year
Some also build roads to access more and more remote forests
Not all deforestation is intentional, some are caused by human and natural factors ex. wildfires which may prevent the growth of young trees
Effects
The most dramatic effect is habitat loss for millions of species
70% of Earth's land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes
Deforestation also drives climate change
Forests' soils are moist, but without the protection from sun blocking trees cover, they quickly dry out
Trees also help perpetuate the water cycle by returning water vapor into the atmosphere
Point of view #3
Conservationist is very much against cutting down trees
They state that the more we cut down trees, the more we destroy our planet
Those trees provide us oxygen to breath, to live
They care about losing endangered and rare species dying of deforestation
An advantage is that they're working to protect the trees
A disadvantage is that trees are still being cut down
