Deforestation: How Tree Loss Affects Climate


  • Charlotte West


Deforestation and climate change are two of the biggest environmental disasters facing the planet today. It is important to understand the interaction between these threats. Using meta­analysis, we looked at the effect that deforestation has on climate as well as on climate change. Ten research papers were selected from a pool of twenty-five on large rain forests, and these were used for statistical analysis. In order to produce relevant and applicable results, the studies were restricted to the last five years. We found that deforestation has both regional and global impacts on climate. This result has significant implications because it shows that slowing deforestation is critical not only for the local environment but also for the entire global climate.
