It also effects emission of greenhouse gases, global climate change, carbon stores in soil.

When the trees in the moist tropical forests are cut down, they cause the forest to basically “dry out” leaving them no longer moist Therefore, the earth’s temperature and humidity are altered.
For many, this is a concern because this is changing the climate faster than some living things are able to adapt.
