The effects of deforestation have catastrophic consequences on the earth, causing drought, landslides, floods and inadequate ability to absorb CO2. The transformation of forests into grazing lands and plantations is not only a risk for the ecosystem and for biodiversity, but weighs heavily on the the shoulders of man and his activities.
Progress is, of course, incessant and its speed increases staggeringly, but we mustn’t take for granted that the metamorphosis that mankind’s evolution is making must turn our earth upside down. We are guests to a perfect ecosystem, made up of flora and fauna that, for millions of years, have existed undisturbed and in perfect harmony. Why should our evolution destroy precisely what makes our “beloved” earth so beautiful. If progress is relentless, why can’t the love we have for it go at the same pace?
