No it hasn't but the decrease in forests compares in no way to the rain forests in the amazon.

I'm amazed that we're even close to having the acreage we had in 1787.   There's almost a hundred times as many people and yet the forests have only shrunk from 700,000,000 plus to 600,000,000 plus.  

(Not to denigrate the value of old growth forests, I'm just happy to hear there hasn't been nearly as much lost as I'd have guessed.)

I'm guessing here, I'll bet that everyone who post concerning this issue has done so while sitting inside a house made of wood.
Let see, we think that the people of Brazil should not sell the trees in their own country. We wouldn't want them to take advantage of their resources and improve their lifestyles. But anyone whining about them working to improve their lives is sleeping in a decent wood house, in a wood frame bed, sitting at a wood dining set to eat and probably drink coolaid sitting on a wooden deck.
Hypocracy?

I don't know about the whole US but the forests are disappearing fast where I am located.  Just this AM my wife and I were riding our bikes next to our forest.  On one side of the road are businesses and a highway on the other side of the road is our forest.  Nothing but car noise on one side of the street on the other cicadas, frogs and birds are all singing.  

Go here to see some pictures.

In many places around the world there is a problem with forest loss, however I believe that the problem is much smaller than it seems.

Well let''s see think for a moment.

Trees take Co2  convert to o2.  OK

Decresed global forests, main soruce of Co2 exchange to o2.  Ok

During time of destruction of forest, global Co2 has also increased.... OK

Increased CO2 emissions,  alrming levels of Co2  levels rising in a short period of time, that would not accur in nature naturally over millions of years.  OK

Naw we don't need to worry about it at all, we will all be dead by then... BUt the next few generations will have to worry.

You state the bible condems Gay love. But the also also allows slavery and states woman serve their husband and are less then them, but you do not obey that? It is clear the bible has been rewritten by man, and the word of god is lost.

Most CO2 conversion come from algae. About 80% of it.

Well first off CO2 is not converted to O2.  

Now here are a couple of questions for you to think about.

What are the major carbon / CO2 "sinks"?  Are there any others besides trees and other vegetation?

What happens to a tree when it dies?  Does all the stored carbon end up back in the air as CO2?

Which biome traps more carbon in a years growth, a field of grass or the same area of trees?

Think.

(Edited by admin 10/8/2002 at 6:46 PM).


Depends on what you mean by forest.  In the prairie states, the entire grassland biome, there were essentially no trees.  There are millions and millions of trees now, some planted, others volunteer.

Old growth forest is certainly way down.  Total number of trees,  may well be greater than in pre columbian times.    During the ice age there was not one tree in Canada or NE USA.  

Keeping all the old growth forest, and the herds of buffalo isnt compatible with civilization.  What do people want?
