Deforestation

We all know that trees takes carbon dioxide and gives fresh oxygen which humans breathe. Cutting down of forests has resulted in increased levels of Carbon dioxide in our environment which results in global warming. Forests are cleared for making space to build cities, utilize resources for food, shelter and clothing. Forests play a very important role in controlling climate change as they soak all the carbon dioxide of the atmosphere which would otherwise result in climate change. According to World Wildlife Fund, forests cover 31 percent land area of our planet, some 46-58 thousand square miles of forest are lost each year—equivalent to 48 football fields every minute.
