Mankind has been fishing since who knows when. The real problem has started since mechanised/commercial fishing on large scale has started. Where people really really need fish small amount of fishing can sustain these people. A hundred years ago how people inland really got to eat sea fish ? Now with commercial fishing everything has changed. One thing that comes to mind(due its graphic nature) is the salmon fishing in the rivers in US/canada look like massacre.

Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
Valentine you have put this in much better words than me. I could not agree with you more. I did grow up in a farm in India and we practiced mostly organic farming. For people who are against livestock I would say in a ideal world minimising or (eliminating?) rearing of livestock is very good. Also Farming is also a big contributor to deforestation and modern agricultural practices destroy soil and water. Between the options 1) everybody stop eating meat/poultry/dairy products/farm grown fruits and vegetables. and 2) Allans approach Which is easier ? Which is possible ?And which is yielding results now ?

Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
He said unless land is totally barren the livestock can feed on what is present. I know livestock can and do feed on dried leaves and grass as well as live green grass/leaves. In this scenario we need to supplement water directly. Most land is still not 100% desert. Where the land is already turned to desert i think we need to manually to replenish vegetation.

Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
The moving herds of wild animals did not cause much harm as among other things they were continuously moving. This was because of wild animals hunting them. This meant there was no over grazing and also the dung/urine of animals added back nutrients that let the soil/plants recover. With man coming in, killing animals, cutting trees etc. what has happened is nature has lost the ability to recover. In addition domesticated animals are overgrazing and destroying what was left by man. Allans strategy is to mimic the movement of wild herds and in effect give nature a chance to recover and maintain micro-ecosystem he talks about in every patch of soil. If you look at this video as a disconnected set of scenes it looks contradictory. But when viewed as a whole it makes sense. This is not the best solution I agree, but he has shown data to support his claims. And I trust TED talks enough not to let someone present False data.
