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.
