    Watched this a few days ago. And I suggest everyone does too.

    Not only is it an excellent follow up to 'Lessons from Loess', it has a decent walkaround video of 'Greening the Desert Sequel'. That's something people need to see more of.

    that is our only answer to the health of our system rehabilitate, let the trees suck up the heavier than air carbon 2 factor.

    it won't happen but hey? no money or manipulation value in rehabilitating the habitat.

    all the unemployable could be utilised in helping to plant.

    I loved how PRI Australia had this video up for about a day and a half last month- then it was taken down! But after the Rio summit it appears once more.

    This has to be one of my favorite documentaries. Well worth sharing far and wide- nothing speaks more to the power of agroecology and permaculture than these large scale projects in well known areas (at least everyone knows about the plight of Ethiopians).

    When someone says, "Organic can't feed the world!" You can reply, au contraire mon frere, may I introduce you to one John Liu?
