We are constantly creating GHG which is destroying the rain forest. Emissions from factories, bonfires, and cars release carbon dioxide into the air.
The trees are not able to hold as much carbon as we are releasing. Also, deforestation and the burning of trees releases that stored carbon back into the air.
The burning of fossil fuel has also created acid rain which is changing the soil in the rain forest and killing many of the trees. Without the trees there won't be enough water in the atmosphere because transpiration won't happen.
