From Latin America came the topmost contributor of land scraping in the whole world. Deforestation in Latin America accounts for almost 53% of the emitted carbon dioxide in the atmospheric air. Logging in the region has become so immense that it claimed to have the highest rate in the world, and the fight of it came to be one of hardest struggles of the continent.
In over a period of 5 years, the world lost 100 hectares of the forested lands, and about half of that came from the Latin American nation. Deforestation has been quite a great toil to them and their people for years now, and it hasn't been an easy battle because economy has been playing with the nation ever since.
What makes the fight even more exhausting is that the economy of Latin America relies on its own soil for support. Not only are the Latin Americans dependent on their ecological capacity, but the neighboring nations as well. If this present trend will run continuously for a period of 30 years, the world will be totally depleted of all its natural resources.
To combat and counter the ways of deforestation, the Latin American government imposed laws which could help stop all illegal activities. However, it is still a question up to this time why the problem has not ceased for years.
Predictions For Latin America
Recently, Latin America has experienced great climactic changes, and this could have been brought only by the intense cutting of their forests and the abuse that their lands receive.
