Quick OverviewApril 2016's issue of New Internationalist presents that the world’s last great woodlands are fast disappearing – with untold consequences for the environment and for us. Time to stop the destruction, argues Wayne Ellwood, this month's guest editor.
DetailsThis month's issue of New Internationalist explores our relationship with forests and how we can save them.
From the Amazon to the northern boreal the world’s last majestic stands of unbroken forest are under threat. The causes are clear: logging, booming cash crops like soy and palm oil, cattle ranching, urbanization, oil exploration and mining. But millions of people depend on forests for their livelihoods and forests are vast warehouses of biodiversity. Trees are also on the front line in the fight against climate change: storing carbon, pumping oxygen, regulating rainfall, moderating temperatures, purifying our air and water. People need trees and so does the planet. In a primal sense forests are us: it’s urgent we save them.
