Maddy Scully WRIT 140 Saba Razvi 5 October 2010 The Fight for the Forests A disagreement can travel a long way, even across the entire globe. Once one forms an opinion, s/he is on a constant rampage to promote and defend his/her stance. The environment is a resource that needs never-ending support and protection, but there are still some who believe otherwise. Because of society’s emphasis on consumerism, the economic factors clash with the ethical issues of deforestation, which prevents the conservation of forests.

The more trees occupying our land, the more carbon dioxide is absorbed, limiting the greenhouse effect. As humans, we currently have a moral duty to reduce our carbon footprint and maintain a solid care for the community and our fellow humans, and by destroying the forests, we are doing exactly the opposite. Ethically, there is a great need to resolve the issue of deforestation, in order to conserve the diversity of our wildlife and to preserve the quality of life. Although society should be focused on the importance of ethics in our world today, one must also be aware of the nation’s continuing debt crises. Some may think money should not be as important as our world makes it out to be, but it is simply impossible to accomplish large tasks without it. A large majority of a country’s income comes from foreign trade. It is also the easiest
