Is deforestation an issue kids should worry about. Yes I do think that kids should worry about deforestation. I think that because if it happens then our earth couldn’t breath and then we could die.  And people would disagree because it’s how they provide to their families and they can grow crops there.  There are 2,000 to 3,000 cancer fighting plants in the rainforests and we should keep them because they might do things for us.


Another reason I think that deforestation should stop is because if you cut down the trees it won’t be good  for the animals that live there.  One reason kids should worry about deforestation is because an estimated 18 million acres of the world’s forests are destroyed. That is the size of south carolina.  And it would take less than 100 years to destroy all the forests. I wouldn’t use this as an excuse that they are growing crops for their families because they could get already `open land.

  1. Hi Joe,
    First of all, thanks for commenting on my Carey Price post. I’m coming back on your blog for another comment.
    I think deforestation is a big issue and many animals are losing their habitats and even families. You’re also very right that the world needs trees. If trees weren’t here we could die. Trees help us breathe.
    Keep up the good work,
