The Amazon River

Amazon River Problems Joseph BataglioPeople produce the most pollution in the Amazon River. Since more factories are being built in the Amazon, then more damage will be dealt to the rainforest. One kind of pollution factories produce is water pollution. More trees are being cut down in order to accommodate factories; which creates deforestation. Cutting down trees will increase Co2; which will effect climate change; which will eventually lead to a global warming.

Economy of the Amazon RiverJoseph BataglioThe Amazon River has many resources, such as products produced from plants, like rubber, hardwood, Brazil nuts, rosewood, vegetable oils, jute, and other fibers. Minerals, such as manganese ore, diamonds, and gold are mined and sold. Petroleum is another product that is also being extracted. Fish not only support local markets, but they also are transported to other countries.The main road through the Amazon is the Trans-Amazon highway, which connects to other road systems in other countries up north. All highways connect together with water transportation networks, so goods can go easily in and out through land or boat.
