Sally Driscoll and Simone Flynn, discuss many interesting facts about the Amazon deforestation. The facts that they provide really help you form an understanding of what has occurred and the drastic measures that have been taken to help both the people and to help the environment. The authors give great information and a lot of relevant facts, but they give equal grounds for both sides of the topic. This makes it difficult to tell what their opinion of the topic is, and how they feel about it. But they do support each side very strongly. I have found that the result of deforestation has led to many new jobs such as loggers, farmers, ranchers, and minors. Many power plants, highways and settlements have improved the living conditions for many people who live around the Amazon area. I have also found that most of the world’s water comes from the Amazon rainforest and so do many interesting plants and animals that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The author successfully states the positive and negative sides of deforestation, giving me a chance on my own to decide whether or not deforestation is positive or not.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
