Deforestation to Blame for Climate Change

Deputy Agriculture Minister, Bheki Cele, says combating global warming should be the responsibility of all South Africans.

Addressing delegates at the Forestry Indaba in George, Western Cape, Cele, who is of the view that deforestation is partly to blame for climate change, stressed that it is important to preserve forests for future generations.

“Global warming is part of us. Mess up with the world and I can assure you the world is not going to pardon us…,” he warned

Climate Change Not Receiving Attention

One of the largest contributors to climate change is deforestation, accounting for 15 percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions.

Writing in their blog, Rosaly Bird, co-founder and author of the Sustainability Co-Op and Laurèn DeMates, environmentalist, social scientist, explorer and writer, argue that however, deforestation does not receive sufficient attention in climate discussions in developed countries, since the most threatened forests tend to be in developing countries.
