How to green the desert and reverse climate change

How to green the desert and reverse climate change
16/03/2013 Andrew Pothecary

Fantastic presentation from Allan Savory on “How to green the desert and reverse climate change”.  He provides a practical and very real solution to many problems by working with nature rather than against it.

from Ted Talks: Desertification of the world’s grasslands, Allan Savory suggests, is the immediate cause of poverty, social breakdown, violence, cultural genocide — and a significent contribution to climate change. In the 1960s, while working in Africa on the interrelated problems of increasing poverty and disappearing wildlife, Savory made a significant breakthrough in understanding the degradation and desertification of grassland ecosystems. After decades of study and collaboration, thousands of managers of land, livestock and wildlife on five continents today follow the methodology he calls “Holistic Management.”
