Many industries in petrochemicals release their waste into rivers which results in soil erosion and make it unfit to grow plants and trees. Mining: Oil and coal mining require considerable amount of forest land.
Apart from this, roads and highways have to be built to make way for trucks and other equipment.
Deforestation in the current scenario may have reduced however it would be too early to assume. This will curb total depletion of the forest cover. Also the cutting must be replaced by planting young trees to replace the older ones that were cut.
The money-churner that forest resources can be, is tempting enough for deforestation to continue. Trees are being planted under several initiatives every year, but they still don’t match the numbers of the ones we’ve already lost. Founded Conserve Energy Future with the sole motto of providing helpful information related to our rapidly depleting environment.
Some of these industries thrive on illegal wood cutting and felling of trees. Urbanization: Further on order to gain access to these forests, the construction of roads are undertaken; here again trees are chopped to create roads. Desertification of land: Some of the other factors that lead to deforestation are also part natural and part anthropogenic like Desertification of land.
Overpopulation too directly affects forest covers, as with the expansion of cities more land is needed to establish housing and settlements. It occurs due to land abuse making it unfit for growth of trees.Unless you strongly believe in Elon Musk‘s idea of making Mars as another habitable planet, do remember that there really is no 'Planet B' in this whole universe.Topic: Recycling Title: Saving our Resources General purpose: To inform Specific purpose: To inform the audience that recycling is essential for saving our resources. (Attention getter) One time in high school, my class took a trip to the dump.With constant deforestation the ratio of green house gases in the atmosphere has increased, adding to our global warming woes. Soil Erosion: Also due to the shade of trees the soil remains moist.With the clearance of tree cover, the soil is directly exposed to the sun, making it dry. Floods: When it rains, trees absorb and store large amount of water with the help of their roots.Over the last century the forest cover around the globe has been greatly compromised, leaving the green cover down to an all time low of about 30 per cent.According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), an estimated 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) of forest are lost each year.Deforestation in simple term means the felling and clearing of forest cover or tree plantations in order to accommodate agricultural, industrial or urban use.It involves permanent end of forest cover to make that land available for residential, commercial or industrial purpose.It was so disgusting and stink; I remember smelling it in my sleep for several days.What caught my attention, was a fish caught in the plastic from a six pack of sodas.
