Deforestation Case Study Proposal:


    I have decided to conduct my case study on the issue of Deforestation. This is an issue that has been around for quite a while and it is vastly getting worst. Though the issue of Deforestation is happening everywhere it seems to be very prominent in certain areas of the world such as Russia, Brazil, China, United States, Canada, Australia, Congo, Indonesia, Peru and India. I want to focus this case study in the area of the United States within the southern region of Georgia. In the state of Georgia there are about 3 counties that are reported to have a steady increase in losing trees. Each of these counties are growing rapidly in population growth and the need for certain resources are rising. The controversy of this issue extends across a wide spectrum when discussing the pros and cons.  Many people have no problem with deforestation and sees advantages in this process such as (1) providing residential land, (2) allows for agricultural land, and (3) offers job opportunities. Just as there are people who have no problem with this issue, some view this as a major issue in our environment. Cons with this problems are issues such as (1) It harms wildlife and destroys their habitat, (2) It causes soil erosion, and lastly (3) It affects the water cycle. These issues may seem small to some but with the effects of our environment being harmed it is a major problem and should be treated as such. In this case study I want to shed light using all facts to show how deforestation is affecting the environment in both good and bad ways. The United States is gravely being impacted from this issue and because I am from the state of Georgia, I want to research what is happening here.
