How to green the world's deserts and reverse climate change - TED talk by Allan SavoryBy: Amos S. Eno
It is worth watching Alan Savory's TED talk. I have seen Savory's work in Africa and the American west. Private Ranchers will be the frontline on restoring western grasslands and the species that depend on them. Eat beef and lamb and help restore our grasslands in the United States.
"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.
