Deforestation and Its Effect on the Planet
Deforestation also drives climate change. Forest soils are moist, but without protection from sun-blocking tree cover they quickly dry out. Trees also help perpetuate the water cycle by returning water vapor back into the atmosphere. Removing trees deprives the forest of portions of its canopy, which blocks the sun’s rays during the day and holds in heat at night. This disruption leads to more extreme temperatures swings.
Trees are the lungs of our earth! Protect the rainforests. Ancient forests are disappearing before our eyes. Not only does forest loss eliminate wildlife habitat and harm biodiversity, but tropical deforestation releases tons of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Help us protect forests and the climate. Read more.

Their replacement by cropland could precipitate a disaster that is global in scale. ” —James Lovelock, in Biodiversity
