Allan Savory's TED Talk: How to green the desert and reverse climate change

Allan Savory

This presentation has been going around the "Permaculture World" for the last month. It is amazing. This is a must watch video if you have any interest in repairing our broken ecosystems.

From the TED website:
“Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert,” begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And 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. 

Allan Savory works to promote holistic management in the grasslands of the world


  1. Great TED Talk. Makes me wish I had a huge herd of mammals to release on the landscape.

    1. Hi Nicholas, I may add 'a large herd of mammals and their pack hunting predators', in whose absence those same grazing animals would create a loss of biodiversity and so deserts. Man with the right management can take part of the predator role.

  2. Wow, awesome weblog structure! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for? you made running a blog look easy. The whole look of your web site is fantastic, let alone the content material!

  3. Posts shared useful information and meaningful life, I'm glad to be reading this article and hope to soon learn the next article. thank you
