While some people consider global warming to be the most pressing environmental problem which we have at the moment, others believe that deforestation has a more devastating impact on our world. Discuss both the sides and give your opinion.
Environmental degradation is a serious issue in the present day world. While some people believe that global warming is the most serious environmental issue, others opine that deforestation would have a more devastating effect on our world. Both the views will be discussed before a conclusion is drawn.
On the one hand, deforestation has emerged as a major concern in today’s world. Forests are the natural habitat of many species and if they are cleared, it would imperil the life of many species. In fact, one of the reasons for the disappearance of some species of living organisms can be attributed to deforestation. In addition, trees absorb greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, whereby they reduce the presence of such gases in the atmosphere. Therefore, the destruction of the forests is one of the contributing factors to global warming.
On the other hand, global warming, which is the phenomenon of rapid and accelerated increase of earth’s surface temperate, is one of the menacing problems faced by the modern world. The amount of greenhouse gases is getting increased due to the burning of fossil fuels such as petroleum products and natural gases, which are widely used in automobiles, factories, and power generation centres. This contributes to the escalation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, leading to global warming. The melting of ice caps in the poles, the resultant rise in the sea level, extreme droughts, forest fires, the disappearance of many species, and unpredictable nature of weather patterns are all the outcome of global warming. Therefore, global warming, undoubtedly, is a graver issue than anything else that the modern world is confronted with.
In conclusion, both global warming and deforestation are serious issues in the present day world. However, in my opinion, global warming is much more menacing and devastating in most aspects compared to deforestation.
