Strategic Difference

leave a comment »

The strategic difference in this plan is: Rather than addressing expanding desertification unsuccessfully at the margins of the Sahara ( symptoms ) this plan calls for addressing the root cause of desertification: failure of the Tibesti and Ahaggar fresh water function to be self sustaining due to soil depletion, savanna and forest loss, or more simply, insufficient ground nutrients to self sustain a stronger water cycle.

Big Water and Grass

The Saharan capacity, about 5 million square miles, for storing soil nutrients is foreseeably not limited and restoration of former Savanna by various groups in several Saharan countries, and elsewhere, have thus far made only small gains in what appears for them to be an intractable problem. Spending billions on “nature mimicking” sewage treatment plants while depriving soil and grass land of nutrients is just plain silly.
