Carbon Save The Forest and Save green

Forests are the lungs of the world that is capable of saving human life, the presence of many forests will produce oxygen that is in need by all living creatures on this earth ,, but how the state of the forests are now ,, very poor, and there is even a deliberate people burn forests for the sake of momentary ,, they do not realize the importance of forests for human life.Given the importance of forests to climate change it would be reasonable to ask why we are not only protecting the world's forests. But reducing deforestation is no simple effort. Forests are being destroyed by global economic forces (eg demand for wood, beef, soybeans, palm oil, etc.). Slowing or eliminating deforestation means addressing these underlying drivers by making forests valuable as a living entity, not merely to what can be produced when they are cut.One solution, known as Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD), driven as a key element for a new global agreement to combat climate change after the Kyoto Protocol ends in 2012. The logic that underlies REDD is quite simple. Currently, short-term economic gains from deforestation outweigh the long-term good of forest conservation. With  of up to £ 7500000000 globally per year into saving forests, the economic balance is believed to change in favor of the latter. This money will be paid in the form of carbon credits, working in conjunction with national deforestation rates - more countries save, the more gain.It may seem like a good idea but the scheme is fraught with problems. REDD simplifies the function of forest ecosystems with a store carbon. This undervalues ​​them as water catchment areas, habitats for biodiversity and as the basis of livelihood of indigenous and local communities'. Groups of indigenous peoples and forest communities are concerned they will not see the benefits of REDD. Worse still, some believe it could trigger a new wave mechanism land grabs and evictions by parties who wish to utilize carbon payments. Groups of indigenous peoples and forest communities have long struggled against development interests seeking to exploit the land and their traditional resources. More than one billion people worldwide depend on forests for their livelihoods, so that schemes such as REDD pose a major threat to them if not managed properly. Another danger is that schemes to 'avoid deforestation' become a further means for rich countries to avoid responsibility for consumption and avoid cutting emissions (eg they continue spewing emissions offset by 'avoided deforestation' carbon credits). There are also concerns that the market-based mechanism for reducing greenhouse gas emissions would crash carbon prices by flooding the market with cheap credit (eg, making it cheaper for polluters to avoid genuine emissions cuts). This will reduce the low-carbon and renewable technologies, and causes the developing countries are losing out on massive in low carbon technologies. Basically, the low carbon price could derail global efforts to tackle global warming today global warning so we feel, as well as the uncertain climate we  getting hot, this need for early anticipation to tackle global warning.It seems quite clear that the limited carbon market will not save the forests or stop climate change. Forest conservation can be done more easily by the fund (eg Cool Earth) compared with the market cowboys racing around the world looking for cheap offsets.What we need to check is the drivers of deforestation, including the international trade in beef, soy and paper. First we must overcome those drivers rather than throwing money at companies cutting down trees, when we continue to give them an incentive to do so. Financial incentives can also play a role, as far as they support the recognition of indigenous peoples' land rights or education projects. Such steps, which would cost far less than the proposed financing for REDD, could be valuable in avoiding deforestation original. But they are unlikely to appear in the books balance of forest carbon trading scheme whose main purpose seems to be giving the Western countries with yet another escape from their responsibility to reduce emissions at home.We must press our government to drastically reduce carbon emissions at home instead of buying offsets from overseas. We should encourage them to introduce stricter environmental policies that reduce the consumption of imported forest products (eg, garbage management strategies that reduce the consumption of wood and paper, set higher targets and timetables for paper and cardboard recycling of domestic sector). Britain is now one of the world's largest consumer of wood and paper products.We must continue the business accountable. Companies need to know that the community will hold them responsible for business practices that are socially or environmentally damaging. If you feel that the business practices of an environmentally responsible company, sent the company a letter expressing your concerns, or organize a boycott of the company.We need a better education at all levels of society. At this time, many people are alienated from the knowledge of the consequences of their demands, and how heavy carbon lifestyle they contribute to deforestation and climate change (such as excessive consumption of beef, paper and wood).We need to look at the role of eco tourism and volunteerism. Although this results in more people trampling in beautiful places, it is a very powerful mechanism for conservation and also brought the local community income without having to sell their land for timber, cattle ranching and soy production.There are many things we can do to help protect the world's forests and reduce carbon emissions, we must begin to take action growing plant a million trees around the world, which will produce abundant oxygen ,, we need to realize that one tree can produce 3 times the amount of oxygen needed by one person, in other words that if you cut down one tree, then you reduce the number of humans as much as 3 ,, to realize just how important it is to plant trees
