Explain how the destruction of forests affects atmospheric levels of carbon.


Well, trees takes in CO2 and produce O2, we produce CO2 and takes in O2, this cycle cannot stop or else we are dead

Destruction of forests affects the levels of atmospheric carbon in two ways. With less trees pulling carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during the process of photosynthesis, atmospheric levels of carbon will increase. Also, when forests are destroyed the carbon that is stored in trees enters the carbon cycle, ultimately reentering the atmosphere.

Trees take in Co2 and convert it into Oxygen through photosynthesis.  Less trees taking in the Co2 = more carbon and less oxygen.
