There seems to be little doubt that the world's rain forests are vanishing, or, at the very least, diminshing in size. The paper offers reviews of four articles dealing with the geography of the rain forest, the shrinking of the Aral Sea, the melting of the polar ice cap, and the Great Barrier Reef, also in trouble from manmade pollution and sediment.
From the Paper:"The North Pole seems awash in water, something that scientists claim has not happened in fifty million years. The article clearly proves that global warming is having a disastrous effect in a region that was felt to be immune from melting ice. The article's author cites a Russian ice-breaker's captain: "Dr. McCarthy said the icebreaker's Russian captain, who has made the voyage 10 times in recent years, said he had never before encountered open water at the pole" (Wilford para. 5). Even plankton was discovered growing under sheets of ice which could now be penetrated by the sun's rays."
