  1. 1. Deforestation
  2. 2. The Effects that Deforestation has on the environment <ul><li>Deforestation is the destruction of forests to build industrial buildings and housing. </li></ul><ul><li>Many trees are cut down and there are animals which nest or have burrows in these trees are killed and the animals habitats are destroyed if this does not stop soon then we may find that many animals are on the verge of extinction. </li></ul><ul><li>Valuable trees are cut down to be made into furniture or other things. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Catholic perspective on global warming <ul><li>Catholics believe that god gave us the control of the earth according to the bible. </li></ul><ul><li>They also believe that we have betrayed his trust by destroying his earth. Like cutting down trees and killing animals in their natural habitat. </li></ul>
  4. 4. International agreements on deforestation <ul><li>The United Nations seeks to curb deforestation. From 1990 to 2005 the world lost 3% of its forests. </li></ul><ul><li>They also stressed that people should be more aware of the threat that deforestation is having on the environment. </li></ul><ul><li>All the leaders of states agreed on three shared global objectives on forests, advance sustainable forest management, curb deforestation and enhance the contribution of forests to the achievement of international development goals.  </li></ul>
  5. 5. Solutions to deforestation <ul><li>There are many ways in which deforestation is being stopped. </li></ul><ul><li>The most popular is sustainable logging. This means for every tree that is cut down two new ones are planted in its place. This is good because it will combat global warming and with two trees they will be producing twice as much deforestation. </li></ul><ul><li>The other obvious solution is to stop cutting down the trees and to get the UN to place restraining orders on some rare trees. </li></ul>
