The Amazon rainforest is disappearing in front of our eyes and we are not able to do anything.The study has found that in the past 20 years, an area around the size of two Germanys has been cut from the ancient tropical rainforest which is surely the step towards devastation. As the number of trees is decreasing, the ability to regulate proper weather pattern is also getting disturbed which is causing enormous Drought in Sao Paulo and Brazil.
Deforestation occurred in the Brazilian region of the Amazon is around 80 percent which is specifically caused by cattle ranching
The rate of deforestation due to cattle ranching has increased by 29 percent in the past year alone.
The land in between Amazon forest has been levelled for feeding cows, pigs and chickens across the World.
As the population is growing day by day and demand for animal products are raising, this is sure that the devastation is only going to increase and not deplete.
The group of researchers from the Cambridge University declared that the current deforestation rate, between one to two major groups of species is wiped out for every 10 percent of forest land that got cleared.
By changing our food options or by eating more plant-based foods we can bring a drastic transformation. We can cut down carbon footprint, can save water supplies and we have to ensure that the vital production is consumed by people and not by livestock.
