We all know that Malaysia has the oldest rainforest’s in the world , but do we really understand what rainforest’s do? Rainforest’s safeguard our existence on this planet because they help maintain the environmental
This is because rainforest’s contain many balance within the ecosystem. Trees and plants. These absorb the carbon dioxide in the air and release oxygen for us to breathe. When rainforest’s are destroyed, there is nowhere for the carbon dioxide to go but into the atmosphere. This cause the Earth to heat up, and the Ice caps to melt. This in turn creates all sorts of problems such as drought, flood and famine which are now happening in various parts of the world. Another reason why rainforest’s are essential to man is hat they contain the Earth’s greatest diversity of plants and animals.
Thus, they also represent giant gene banks that can provide the cure for many diseases. Medicinal substances already discovered in rainforest’s have provided new drugs, foods and other products. These include reserving, used to treat cardiac problems, and curare, used in heart and lung surgery. Yet Man and his almighty dollar are threatening the very existence of the rainforest’s. The alarming truth is that, since the 1 9705, the rate of deforestation has accelerated greatly.
Indeed, many rainforest’s are being destroyed at the rate of football field each second. As result, total populations of primitive tribes living in the forests have been reduced or even wiped out. In our greed, we are destroying the world for future generations. Stop cutting the trees right now and let us return the Earth’s temperature to the equilibrium that nature depends upon to thrive. Us take definite steps right now to save the environment, not only for ourselves but for our future generations. Thank you.
