Fighting Desertification/Reverse Climate Change

I saw this video recently and was so impressed that I felt it worth sharing. We all have heard the stories about the causes of how our beautiful grasslands are dying, becoming useless for grazing, eye sores, but little do we hear of real solutions, especially solutions that seem so simple, so practical that you wonder why this problem hasn’t become a viable solution for more societies suffering the fate of degrading lands.

Allan Savory has been working on the problem of desertification since 1955. He has tried various methods with extreme lack of success and in this TED talk tells us what he finally tried that is now proven to reverse degrading lands, making great changes in negative climate conditions all by utilizing larger grazing herds on existing troubled sites. I’ve included a link for those who want more information about Allan Savory and his work.

The Windmill, The Rabbit Hole and Time

My mind is twirling, I believe
I feel it will leave its axis
It is spinning out of control
My mind is drifting away
How will I get it back?

Like Alice in Wonderland
I’ve fallen down the Rabbit hole
Do I turn to the left or go right?
I’ve called for you but you don’t answer
How do I get out; how do I get back?

My mind is twirling
It is like a whirlwind out of control
I see you but I really don’t
Am I mad? The clock is ticking
It is time for tea – but what about me?

In the windmill of my mind
I hear you, see you but the laws
The laws of love won’t let me touch you
And the windmill keeps turning
And it keeps getting darker and darker.

But time is of the essences
You’re 70 and I am not far behind
Children are laughing, running free
But you and I seem stuck to me
In the windmill, the windmill of our minds.

I Squidoo – Do You?

I love to Squidoo.  What is that you say?  It is a form of writing and creating digital content, articles and pictures similar to on-line magazines.  I originally joined as a fun hobby of sorts.  However, one thing lead to another and I have over 100 of these and they are bring in extra income for me as well as serving as entertainment and informative content for the community.  Here is a sample of one of my lenses:

A bonus that I like about Squidoo is that it generates revenue for a tremendous population of non-profit organizations.  So, I can create, earn income and donate all in one creative model.   I hope you will take time and check out some of my lenses.  If you would like more information or would like to try the program (free to join), click on my link below.  Thanks for taking a look.
