Putting deforestation in perspective

We have seen it throughout this blog, deforestation is a key environmental issue but it is sometimes hard to grab for people in developed nations as they aren’t directly concerned by this phenomenon.

How much time would it take for Central Park or the Champs de Mars to be destroyed if deforestation were to occur in New York or Paris ? This brilliant and short video answers these questions.

This is typically the kind of document that I believe anyone should watch to finally understand that deforestation concerns us all.


Many thanks to Jaymi Heimbuch for writing on that excellent video.
