Global Rainforest Tragedy
Rainforest destruction [search] AND diminishment [search] are a global tragedy [ark] of unknown and unimagined consequences. This delicate layer of primeval, bountiful life is an absolutely critical component of the Earth System [search]. There innumerable species live and are intimately connected in life-giving ecosystems. Through carbon, nutrient and water cycling, rainforests maintain the biosphere, and thus conditions for all life. The loss of the world's last large, intact tropical rainforest ecological core areas [ark] will doom most, if not all, of the Earth's life — including humans — to a painful death spiral culminating in extinction. Rainforest losses are a monstrous evil perpetuated upon being. But seriously, enough is enough, this must and will end.
