Did anyone ever know that rainforests are denuded at the rate of 6,000 acres per hour? It is indeed a surprising fact that our green lands are abolished at such a rapid rate; and do people know what the detrimental effects could be? Well, the answer may be a mixture of a yes and a no. Others may believe that the premise to a dying world is true, while others deny the fact that such things could really take place.
However, in issues like this, people must believe only in one thing, and that is: rainforest deforestation is going over a higher speed and its damaging effects are almost unstoppable.
We talk of deforestation everyday yet we failed to notice its fast coming pace. Perhaps it is due to man’s negligence that people can continue destroying without seeing the potential effects their acts could bring. Man could only possibly regret when things are affecting them in such a way that it becomes a disturbance to a good life. By seeing and hearing the probable outcomes of deforestation, one must take sides in selecting between good and evil. In choosing one, remember not to make regrets about your preferences.
Rainforest: An Essence To The World
With the 3 billion people living in the tropical areas of the world, much of our green resources have been bargained for. The rainforests of the world are literally disappearing in a swift stride to supply for food, fuel and other reserves and to make room for the expanding population. Since the world is rapidly increasing in the number of people, the need for the basics is called all the more.
The rainforests offer abundance not only in terms of human supply for food, but through other means as well. Say for example the plants which have evolved through time in special mechanisms and have now shown essentialities with regards to medical practice.
Native people from all over the world have known about the healing properties of the plants hiding in rainforests; and it is only during the World War II that medicinal plants were proven to cure various diseases. Unbeknownst to many, almost half of the medicinal cure for cancer has been found in the world’s most popular forests. People should then likely protect the world’s remaining medicinal storehouses for future use and consumption.
How To Preserve The Remaining Forests
Rainforests can be dealt with efficiently without jeopardizing rare species of both the plant and animal kingdom. Also, it can be effectively managed without having to risk the global environment. For example, the government can always choose to prohibit companies that harvest lumber or they can allow cutting of trees to a certain extent, but they should also be required to plant new ones after cutting down the old trees.
The government can also ensure the creation of reservation areas where logging and hunting are prohibited. As one world, people must be cautious not to disrupt the environment in any way since we will be needing them by all means in the future.
Rainforest deforestation disturbs the balance of our ecosystem. As a result to such disruption, the world may suffer from nature’s retaliation. If people do not want to experience the revenge of our biological world, we must do all measures so as not to provoke it.
