In the past hundred years, humans have begun destroying rainforests at an alarming rate. Today, roughly 1.5 acres of rainforest are destroyed every second. People are cutting down the rainforests in pursuit of three major resources:
- Land for crops
- Lumber for paper and other wood products
- Land for livestock pastures
Note: The worlds paper problem can be solved by growing non-thc based hemp which grows fast, in soil with low fertility and produces high quality paper (better than the paper from trees!). Since the hemp I am talking about can't get anyone high likes it's cousin the Marijuana plant, there is no need to consult doctors or psychiatrists to make hemp legal for growing.
