On Earth, we use photosynthesis to breathe. If we do not have enough plant life, we will die. The plants can live in the environment without us, but we can not live without the plants. The deforestation in Zimbabwe means reduced plant life, reduced natural resources, and at the National Parks reduced jobs.
Craig Simons writes, “As China Grows Rich, Rainforests Fall” on January 2, 2012:
“…logs…rising demands has come at a steep environmental cost…China’s shoppers have taken up the slack driving unsustainable logging and leading to the rapid loss of some of the world’s last stands of pristine rainforests”.
Again, “The plants can live in the environment without us, but we can not live without plants.”
