Having lived in India and travelled to many of the Indian places by road...I can CONFIDENTLY say that there is no such tropical forest there apart from its remnants which are small patches.
Life on earth has evolved for millions of years. Forest fires have burnt down big great forests, but they have then been rejuvinated as the nutrients are returned to the soil.
All I can say is: Try to take an outsider perspective. Imagine yourself for a second being a spectator looking at earth hundreds of years ago: Its diversity and richness. Compare that to now. Just look at how useful trees are to soaking up the carbon. Once again....a forest is not the same as having an exotic tree planted in your backyard. In the forest, each tree is its own ecosystem. Everything eventually boils down to "wise use". Yes, there have been hotter years before, but look at the data people posted above: nearly more than 5 to 6 years since 2000, global temps are hitting an all time high. There is increased flooding and other natural disasters. There is an attenborough video which shows how ice is just collapsing at the poles.
aahh...I know I veered off into another topic. But, still they are all related.
