In Asia, every two seconds, an area of forest that is the size of a football field is destroyed because of the construction of new things, like roads and buildings. They are ignorant of what they are doing, already many natural sources (such as Global Warming and forest fires) are killing trees, but the people who destroy them for attractions just crossed the line. Getting rid of what makes us fresh oxygen, and destroy innocent animal’s home is too much. What if someone build a road in the middle of your house, or just destroyed it completely. Would you like that? I don’t think so. Then why do it to them?
1ST Paragraph
Forests cover 31% of the land area on our planet. They produce vital oxygen and provide homes for people and wildlife. They are not worth to be removed from Earth. In the Amazon forest around 17% of trees has been lost in the last 50 years. Yes, we do need a lot of products that are made of wood, but we have to learn how to moderate, we have to use less. Tablets should cost less since we do not need any paper. Yes, electronics may be taking over our lives, but they are also saving it for us and the wild animals. There’s clear-cutting to have and agricultural farm, which one would you pick. Food, or Oxygen? Both are vital to survive, but we have more food than trees. A solution could be to plant fruit trees, you have both food and oxygen. Still that will not change anything else that destroys the trees. You are not going to go and tell each person that walks by to stop using wood products. Our homes are made of wood, paper, doors, furniture, etc. It’s a part of our everyday life; we can’t just stop in one day, maybe not even one week. What can we do?
2nd Paragraph
50% of animals, lives in forests. And since the forests are disappearing, the territories become smaller and smaller. Fights may occur between two species to have the territory; this can leave to extinction of many species, like the tiger. We have lost 97% of our wild tigers in just over a century; yeah 97% is way too big of a number. We can lose the rest of our tigers very fast if nothing happens. We only have 3 200 tigers in the world, that’s a very small number. A tiger can only reproduce every 2-2.5 years. But about half of all cubs die before the age of 2, but if they survive they usually live to be 26 years old. Yes tigers are an endangered species and Tropical Rainforests, Evergreen…
