When the Sahara Was Green

PBS Member Stations rely on viewers like you. To support your local station, go to Check out Antarctic Extremes on PBS Terra: The climate of the Sahara was completely different thousands of years ago. 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. Big thanks to Fabrizio De Rossi for the reconstructions of the Sahara past and present.

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?
