The Doomsday Book has a chapter on Rainforest Collapse and all of the tragedy that the collapse will bring to our planet. This article reinforces the dire situation we face:
Much of the Amazon could be on the verge of losing its distinct nature and switching from a closed canopy rainforest to an open savannah with far fewer trees as a result of the climate crisis, researchers have warned.
One big problem is that the conversion of the forest to savannah means a massive tree die off. Every tree that dies releases its stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, meaning ever rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere and warmer temperature across the globe. It is a horrible positive feedback loop that will eventually make earth’s equitorial regions uninhabitable.
“The Doomsday Book” by Marshall Brain lays out this scenario in amazing detail and offers solutions to prevent this doomsday scenario from unfolding. You can pre-order the book today on the pre-order page.
