When the Sahara Was Green

And we’re not talking about just a few years of extra rain. We’re talking about a climate that was so wet for so long that animals and humans alike made themselves at home in the middle of the Sahara.

How to green the world's deserts and reverse climate change | Allan Savory
NOTE: Statements in this talk have been challenged by other scientists working in this field. Read more here: https://blog.ted.com/allan-savorys-how-to-fight-desertification-and-reverse-climate-change-criticisms-updates/ "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.

Can the 'Great Green Wall' stop desertification in China?
Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN China is one of the countries worst affected by desertification. As the Gobi Desert expands further south - engulfing an average of 3,000 square kilometres every year - entire communities are forced to relocate, becoming climate refugees. In a bid to combat this phenomenon, Chinese authorities have been erecting a so-called "Great Green Wall" of vegetation. In some areas, positive results are beginning to show. Our France 2 colleagues report, with FRANCE 24's Ellen Gainsford.

What If We Terraformed the Sahara Desert?
#AmazonFires In an effort to fight climate change, the Sahara Desert could be going green... literally. Plans are being made to terraform the entire Sahara desert; changing it from a dry, barren landscape to a lush green space. If successful, the transformation could remove 7.6 billion tons of atmospheric carbon yearly. How could we change the nature of such a vast, isolated landscape?
