Deforestation is a contributor to global warming, and is often cited as one of the major causes of the enhanced greenhouse effect tropical deforestation is responsible for approximately 20% of world greenhouse gas emissions [37. Deforestation is an important factor in global climate change climate change is because of a build up of carbon dioxide in out atmosphere and if we carry on cutting down the main tool we have to diminish this co2 build up, we can expect the climate of our planet to change dramatically over the next decades.
