New fears have been raised over the rainforest's capacity to adapt to upcoming changes in the climate.

I has been shown if you cut down the trees then the engine that creates rain in a forest will stop and you will have drought and desertification.

It is not about globe warming as such as much as it is about loss of tree cover and soil stabilization. The goal of short term profit over long term survival will be our undoing.

Added the facts that earth magnetic poles are shifting also doesn't help.  What we call global warming is a constant change in our magnetic field which moves the location of the equator.  What was once the North pole will something else.

We are all doomed.  Population of the trees is the only thing going down and we need them more than they need us.
