Deforestation.

Deforestation is the cutting down of trees to supply the human race with things such as paper and timber. Every minute, 100 acres of rainforest is cut down, which, when you think about it, is a lot. However, while it does supply us with things that are important, it can wipe out entire species of trees and plants.
So, discuss. Is it right or wrong?

I say wrong. It is bad for the environment, and alot of paper and stuff that they make, doesn't sell anyway. I think we need to get more people to recycle.

Neither. It's a regrettable inevitability. And deforestation doesn't occur just for resources. Trees are often burned down to create land for pastures and plantations.

Agreed. There really isn't a better alternative. Recycling helps to keep the need down, but as Yell said, we cut down trees for other purposes as well.

People do things like use reuseable bags when shopping, decline receipts at gas stations, and countless others, but we'll always cut down trees.

Simple solution: grow more.

But if the trees are being depreciated from the area for land or plantation, then that is causing us to have less trees.

In my opinion, it is wrong, but a necessity. Albeit, I think the necessary amount should be curtail.

They also absorb some of our pollution for us, so a lack of them cannot be good.

2 trees are required to keep a human alive for 12 months, so let us hope it doesn't come to that.

And also, recycled paper makes 73 percent less air pollution than paper coming direct from trees.

Bamboo can be used as an alternative to rain forest hardwoods too, and the plant isn't killed, since you do not need the whole plant.

We have alternate ways to minimize cutting down rain forest trees and cope, but I don't think we are prepared to do so.

Bamboo, really? That stuff grows so fast. If we can use that, I'm buying a ton of land, raising bamboo, and selling it. It grows practically anywhere.

Mhm. I do have some bamboo. I even have a bamboo sword =D But bamboo is some nice stuff, and if you harvest enough of it, you can use one part of it, and a second part, after the first part's regrown enough

I disagree with Deforestation just for the fact that it has been abused.

Those trees that just get chopped down like nothing take millions of years to regrow. As long as we replant some of those lost trees it'll be better than nothing.

Actually most Forests become scarce-like deserts because of deforestation.

There are other methods but it looks like the most economical is this one.

Don't some places have laws saying that for every tree the company cuts, they need to plant another one or something?
