Changing any aspect of these conditions, such as temperature, would have huge effects on the world ecosystems Masters There is the overwhelmingly urgent need to preserve the forests in order to maintain the health of planet Earth, which supports so many fragile life forms.
Unfortunately, our rainforests are shrinking. The unprotected soil is then simply washed away in heavy rains, causing blockages and floods in lowland rivers, while leaving upland rivers dry. All rainforests have a canopy.
The mass media and international conferences such as the Kyoto Protocol have increased many people's knowledge of the topic at hand.
