gasses will be absorbed increasing the rate of global warming.
Deforestation isn't directly impacting us since we are the ones causing the trees to "disappear" but since there is less oxygen being produced and organisms dying from loss of habitat we have less food and less breathable air.
Deforestation can occur anywhere with trees. it happens everywhere, with the constant growth of cities its almost impossible to stop. In our city, League city, it happens slowly but could gain speed with the amount of residential areas being built.
Ways to Stop Deforestation
My solution is to designate area for trees to grow and be cut down. If implemented now it would take years to have a somewhat effective influence but is better than causing the extinction of many species and possibly the human race.
