Cows Are the Answer!?!

Via Watts Up With That, this awesome TED talk by Dr. Allan Savory.  He shows how people on five continents have reversed desertification by increasing grazing – contra decades of “scientific” grasslands management...

His big insight was realizing the role that wild herds of grazing animals played in the ecology of natural grasslands.  Their mechanical reduction (trampling) of grass provides mulch, fertilizer, and water – perfect conditions for the next generation of grass even during a dry season.
