Hello, I am Hattaway.
I think talking about deforestation. I focus primarily on the Amazon although it is a very busy. Mainly I will say that in the lungs of the Earth, the Amazon contains a total of seven million hectares. According to Greenpeace, 5 acres are cleared per minute in the Amazon. The day should be about 7,200 acres per year would become 2.628 million hectares. Although the figures say that in one year only 1,323,924 hectares have been cleared without illegal parties. Reforestation comes to the point that the area could be harvested from the Amazon that is equal to the area of Spain.
These data are chilling because if echáramos accounts, we would see that soon the Amazon, at this rate, it would be like a desert. Not to mention that not supporting recovery actions logging, since it is too expensive.
Good morning, Hattaway

Hello, I am Hattaway.
Good morning every one! The subject of the deforestation, is something which affects me a lot cause trees are also alive and we had to take care of this biodiversity. Let’s take an exemple , In the bresil, we cultivate of numerous bit just for fields and it’s really bad , cause trees are important We would be lacking of cO2 without them and more bit decreases more the air will be missing, and the fauna and the flora will decrease. Here in france we take really care of the bit , beacause it’s really necessary . We should make video, actions, demonstration for reduice these deforestations perms which degrade our earth.
Deforestation usually happens because large corporations need the trees to mass produce something. Deforestation takes away homes of many species. There are many that eventually extinct since they are not able to survive. I watched a video in AP Bio and not only do wild animals live there, but people still do as well. Examples of people still living in this kind of environment are in Brazil and New Guinea. These people could be largely affected by deforestation.The video was called Jungles: People of the Trees
Deforestation is ripping apart the soil of south America which not only destroys wildlife habitat but ensures nothing else can grow there. I feel like a lot of people join the protest against deforestation to jump on the bandwagon without examining the issue, but it really is an important issue.
The fight to save the Amazon just enlisted a global sports superstar, Ricardo Kaká. The current Real Madrid striker and Brazilian national starter has joined Greenpeace to support zero deforestation of the Amazon.
While soccer still has a way to go in the USA, there isn’t a kid in the world (outside the USA) who doesn’t know who Kaká is. Let’s hope Kaká’s star power makes our future generations understand that Amazon deforestation must not be tolerated.
Why are trees are turning blue in Seattle and Vancouver?
It’s a socially-driven art project started by Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos who uses a water-based pigment to turn the trees “ultramarine blue.”
The goal: To inspire awareness about global deforestation. Take a look at what the project looked like in Vancouver.
This is still local news. But look for this social art project to gain momentum at a national level. It’s beautiful and deserves our attention!!!
UCLA professor/author, Susanna Hecht, co-authored a piece in National Geographic with Charles Mann, author of 1491 (U.S. National Academy of Sciences’ Keck award for the best book of the year) about how former slaves, or maroons, mixed with Indians to shape the Amazon and have become central to its future.
An interesting excerpt that shows how this occurred:
“Living along the rivers like the region’s indigenous peoples, the masterless slaves survived the same way their Indian neighbors did: The river supplied fish and shrimp, small-scale gardens yielded manioc, trees provided everything else. Two centuries of constant planting, tending, and harvesting structured the forest. Mixing together native and African techniques, they created landscapes lush enough to be mistaken for untouched wilderness.”
More than 80% of the Earth`s forests have been destroyed -by the man. However,at least, we are beginning to understand that the key role which forests play in keeping us alive. To protecting our forests is important for many of reasons. Deforestation increases in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Unfortunately, carbon dioxide is one of the greenhouse gases that absorb the heat from the sun. So on, more carbon dioxide means that more than heat is absorbed and reflected on the Earth`s surface, leading to global warming. At least we are now realising how many important it is to protect and save our forests. I just hope it`s not too late.
