8. Explain how deforestation leads to reduced rainfall.
Deforestation means the removal of trees or plants from an area for different purposes.
We know that plants absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. and if there is no plant, the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will rise.
These lead to increasing the temperature of the earth, and it will disturb the water cycle. As a result of the disruption in the water cycle, also affect the rainfall pattern.
