How To Green The World’s Deserts And Reverse Climate Change | TED Talk by Allan Savory. Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert,” begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it’s happening to about two-thirds of the world’s grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes — and his work so far shows — that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

What follows is an editorial by Agcat – Seldom do I have the urge to Editorialize, but this time the urge has been strong. I believe all that is in the video referred to in this posting. I have watched this video a few times and encourage the individuals that find this on Revolution- Green to watch the Video and help spread the word, if that is what you hope to do, I hope that you will.
There are many areas of the world where people are leaving the land as it will no longer support them, there are not enough jobs in cities especially with the desire by the manufacturing and research to use to use AI and Robots to replace humans. It is seen by me that the idea of a universal basic income, is not needed and is a bad idea. If we will but apply the information available to make “the deserts bloom as the rose” perhaps then we be helping to provide for many generations yet to come. The world is not over populated, our wealth and resources go too often to war and other destructive things and not toward being good stewards over the earth. I think we should change the idea of not being able to do anything. See the YouTube Video
