Impacts and Deforestation

The world would have many impacts when the climate changes from the green house problem were facing. The Global average temperature has increase in the last years. “Global average surface temperature could be anywhere from 1.4 to 5.8°C (with a best estimate of 3°C) higher by the end of the 21st century.”I find this hard for our Earths ecosystem to control itself and to adapt to the climate changes. Deforestation will be one of the problems in the changing of climates. Deforestation means “A process of changing land use from forestry to a non-forest use”. About 99% of Forest has been lost in Western Europe. “In the 1980s global deforestation was estimated at 17 to 20 million hectares per year, equivalent to the size of Britain.” Our trees will struggle in the green house society especially because it absorbs Carbon Dioxide. I think healthy water would be one of the hardest to find during the Global warming effect.
