ADD MORE PROTECTION TO FORESTS
This petition had 360 supporters
Deforestation is the process of clearing up a large area of trees. Forests are very important in our environments because they control climate, provide habitats for animals, absorb carbon dioxide, purifies air, and many more.
Deforestation is a huge problem in today’s generation. It has a tremendously negative impact on the environment. Not only on the environment but also on animals. Millions of species and animals living in the forest are having their habitats ruined every day. The main causes of deforestation are industrialization, agriculture, mining, logging, forest fires, forest conversions, businesses, and etc. “NASA predicts that if current deforestation levels proceed, the world's rainforests may be completely wiped out in as little as 100 years”
My issue now needs immediate attention! There are forests being damaged everyday. Today there is a wildfire in California. A few days ago there was a wildfire in Alberta and in that same area 11.43 hectares were burned. Thousands more are affected other than these. 3.5 billion to 7 billion trees are being cut down each year and according to the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization, about 18 million acres of forest, which is almost the same size of Panama, is lost each year.
We need to improve the conditions of forests around all around the world and make them healthier. Without trees many things will be affected. First of all us humans will probably die from the lack of oxygen. We would have to use gas masks to filter out the little bit of oxygen left in the air. Secondly, we wouldn't have fresh drinking water. Fresh water is a basic necessity for humans and all living things on the planet. Without it we would suffer from many illnesses and even die. Thirdly, we won't have any wood based products. Think about your home and all the furniture that's made from trees… your roof, chair, desk, bed, door, toys, dressers, and many more. Our life would truly be difficult and slowly more species will get extinct and more humans will die.
Please help me get some signatures so we can make a difference in the world today and solve the environmental problems for the future generations to come.
