How to fight desertification and reverse climate change - Allan Savory

WOW! Der Talk ist von 2013. Unglaublich dass der nicht unablässig durch die Medien geistert! Untertitel sind in vielen Sprachen dazu schaltbar. Teilt diesen TEDTalk bitte weiter. Danke.
"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 may show -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert. (NOTE: Statements in this talk have been challenged by scientists working in this field. Please read "Criticisms & Updates" below for more details.)
