A Dialogue between Two Friends on Bad Effects of Deforestation
Abrar : Hello Osmit, how are you?
Osmit : I am fine and what about you? Why do you look so worried?
Abrar : I am also fine. I am not worried at all. But I am thinking why many people of our
country are cutting trees indiscriminately. What is the reason behind this?
Osmit : Oh, yes! Everyday many people are cutting trees on a large scale. They are doing so
mainly for fuel, furniture, etc.
Abrar : Yes, but these people may not know the bad effects of deforestation. What is your
idea about deforestation?
Osmit : You are right. However, I think deforestation is very harmful to us.
Abrar : Yes, the importance of trees is too many to describe. Once there were a lot of trees in
our country, but people are destroying our forests day by day.
Osmit : Yes, indeed! If we destroy trees at random, the temperature will rise and one day the
country will turn into a great desert.
Abrar : You are right. Deforestation disturbs our ecological balance seriously in nature.
Osmit : Absolutely. Due to deforestation, carbon dioxide, the main culprit of nature,
increases on a large scale in atmosphere and cause greenhouse effect.
Abrar : You are correct. It is greenhouse effect for which global warming happens in the
Osmit : Exactly! And as a result of global warming ice starts melting in the sea, which
ultimately increases the water level of sea.
Abrar : Yes. This increase of sea water level is a great threat as it may submerge the coastal
areas of many places in the world including Bangladesh.
Osmit : You are absolutely right. We have already experienced lots of natural disasters like
Tsunami, Ayla, Kohinur etc.
Abrar : Yes, indeed. And in other places of the world, flood visits frequently. Thank you
very much for your excellent idea about deforestation.
Osmit : You are most welcome. Good bye. See you again.
