“Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert.”
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.
Allan Savory suggests, is the immediate cause of poverty, social breakdown, violence, cultural genocide, and a significant contribution to climate change.
Savory 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.
