How Do Humans Destroy The Taiga?
Deforestation -Extensive logging in the Taiga may soon cause their disappearance.
Acid rain is also causing significant problems for the Taiga forests. Scientists have discovered that air pollution from the burning of fossil fuels is the major cause of acid rain.
Global Warming - Biologists and scientists think temperature changes over the next century may occur at rates 15 to 50 times faster than historical averages. Organisms will have trouble responding to these changes and will face even greater odds of surviving.Climatologists are also predicting that the area covered by the Taiga will be reduced by 50-90%.
How Do Humans Help?
Afforestation - Deforestation should be managed more carefully. Trees should be replanted in areas of deforestation.
Acid Rain - Scrubbers should be used to reduce pollution from factories releasing pollution into the atmosphere.
