How is deforeststation effecting the planet?

    On a global scale, deforestation is damaging the planet’s ability to process carbon. Usually, plants take in CO2 and release it as oxygen. The sheer scale of deforestation has probably made an appreciable difference in the planet’s overall ability to take in CO2 via forests. Deforestation also leaves areas open to desertification, as plants are no longer present to help hold the topsoil in place. Furthermore, the destruction of forests and subsequent extinctions of animals that depend on these forests is lowering global biodiversity. These are just a few of the effects, for a more complete examination of the issue see the citation.
