Deforestation is a real problem, lots of trees fall down because of human actions we do. In 1990 the deforestation was big, Nowadays is decreasing but some countries keep on destroying the environment. The most deforestation is in Southern America, Eastern and Southern Africa; on the contrary in Europe and north America the problem of deforestation is less incisive . In my country (in the north of Italy) a lot of trees fall down because there are lots of ski resorts and most of people use wood for heating.

Deforestation is a big problem that concerns the whole world. It causes:
- Landslides and floods
- Changes in the climate of the region
- Extinction of plant and animal species
I think that for every tree that you cut you have to plant more trees to avoid the total deforestation and that the most developed States should govern more the cut of trees.
Nuclear power is good if you can control it. Scientist are tying to find a way to dispose of radioactive waste. When a meltdown occurs, it becomes very hot and the fuel rods start to melt. This may lead for countries to not use nuclear energy. However, there are some reasons that are good. For example, nuclear power plants don’t release any pollutants in the atmosphere. It’s just steam. Nuclear power plants also don’t cause global warming.
Hello, My name is Christina Craner and I am a senior at Oakland High School. I live in Oakland California, and am apart of the Environmental Science Academy at Oakland High. This Academy focuses on the environment and the affects we have on our world. Being apart of ESA has motivated me more to become a Marine Biologist. I want to help save coral reefs from pollution. This is my dream career and goal. I plan to attend Hawaii Pacific University and peruse a degree in Marine Biology so I can help save these beautiful marine ecosystems. I want to help make a change in our world.
Trees in jungles are being cut down in order to maintain the worlds population. We use too much wood for many thing such as houses, benches, warmth, etc. It’s amazing how much wood we use in our day to day lives in america. Also deforestation is destroying animals homes and driving them out of their homes and even to extinction.
This might be undermining the cause, but it’s a question worth asking.
I happened upon this blog post which [probably] settled my long-standing animosity towards the issue. Now, in the world of science there’s always room for clarification, but it does conclude that paper towels, relative to air dryers, are the more hygienic, reliable, but [financially] costlier and slightly more [carbon footprint]-significant way to go.
On an unrelated note, this still doesn’t help the cause for the low ceiling air dryers some of these newer Taipei apartment bathrooms have; I’d rather a [*coughnotpapercough*] towel (if they ever get dry enough).
As to what extent daily buckets of used paper towels in school (including weekly “accidental” toilet clogging) contribute to deforestation, I’m not yet equipped to say. / Have a read.
Hi im cole and I live in the US. I agree with Evan that the US does pollute and destroy the earth a lot(even though they have acts and laws that they have been put in place to protect and save our earth) and that each person can use less harmful materials. I believe that each and every person should do something or change something in their life so that the Earth benefits from it. the only thing is that we humans are always looking for a better quality life, and in that search we tend to overuse and abuse our finite environment. So its up to us to figure out the balance between human health(quality of life) and the environment.
Hello everyone! I am Evan and I am from the United States. I feel like out of all the nations, America produces the most pollution and destroys the environment the most. I think we all can produce less pollution by using less energy consuming products and switch to more energy efficient resources. If we do this we can greatly affect the environment we live in and make a greener planet.
