I've been interested for some time about these efforts to reclaim desert territories. YouTube has several fascinating videos about China's major (and successful) projects.

Desert reclamation

That is fascinating. Turning sand into soil. I cannot imagine the great things that will come from this. Amazing.

Nice to know that somewhere out there are persons that have a love for this planet and are willing to work toward solving, in some way, hunger in future generations.

It seems that solutions are more available today than ever before, and the eco solutions solve other problems as well.

Nothing quite like solving a problem whilst using already existing resources that seemed useless and a hindrance to boot. Big time awesome accomplishment.

My Dad use to say, fixing something is good, doing that and not wasting something is great.

Your Dad is/was a smart person.

While a commendable idea, mother nature will have a different idea about changing her dress.

Agreed. In most cases that I've viewed, the encroachment/wasting is a manmade phenomenon. The reclamation is actually a restoration to a viable, natural state.

It seems that the return to natural processes has great economic benefit for local citizens.

Another inspiring story. A really BIG story:

Care to back that up with any salient facts?

Nope. Not going to argue.

You want that, start your own thread.

I'm going to point out efforts to make our world a better place. Deforestration is well documented, both in this country and around the world.
