How does climate change lead to rainforest deforestation?

    Climate change doesn’t necessarily lead to deforestation. It’s actually quite the contrary. Deforestation is a driving force in climate change. As we continue to clear forestland for agriculture and construction we are effectively riding the world of one of the best sinks for carbon dioxide. In turn, deforestation results in rising temperatures. In addition, the trees harvested are often burned which emits more greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.

    Yeh, its the chicken or the egg thing, which came first. Deforestation is probably a cause of climate change, and not the other way around. If anything, climate change should lead to legislation that prohibits rainforest deforestation.
