Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
Thank you for your comment, Steven. I appreciate it and wholeheartedly agree that if we learn from our mistakes, perhaps we will not repeat them. In this case, however, I agree with R. Rueda's comment above, and am saddened by the euphemistic use of the word, "mistake." I believe that Mr. Savory's current scheme for solving desertification is yet another "mistake." Please check out Anthony Holmes's post above about Geoff Lawton and Bill Mollison's creatiions of functional ecosystems from deserts without the use of livestock and see what you think. Thank you again, Steven. (Somehow this posted twice, so I deleted my duplicate comment.)

Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
Dear Austin, I apologize for removing my post below. I wasn't sure where to respond to your two responses. :) Thank you so much for your comments. I wholeheartedly believe in forgiveness. For me, this is not a matter of forgiveness. I feel alarmed by Allan Savory’s previous and current solutions for desertification. It seems to me that solutions could include restoring land back to the native nomadic people, and helping to restore native animal populations like the elephants, rather than bringing in methane producing non-native livestock. And, thank you, Marc Bedner, for your comment!

Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
Dear Job, I wholeheartedly believe in giving someone a chance to atone for their sins. I would feel less suspicious if atonement included restoring the land back to the native nomadic people whom Allan Savory forcibly removed, and helping to protect and restore the elephant population, rather than bringing in methane producing non-native livestock.

How attached are you to your deeply held beliefs? If solutions to global problems challenge your worldview, how do you react?
Dear Arkady, I have not heard of any sane scientific research that began with the slaughter of FORTY THOUSAND elephants. I wholeheartedly believe in forgiveness. I completely disagree with Allan Savory’s previous and current solutions for desertification. It seems to me that solutions could include restoring the land back to the native nomadic people whom Allan Savory removed, and helping to protect and restore the elephant population, rather than bringing in methane producing non-native livestock.

Dear Linda, Thank you for your response. As a foster mom to orphaned baby elephants, I was saddened that Allan Savory had convinced the government to implement his plan on such an enormous scale. Systematically shooting 40,000 elephants to test a theory that proved to be incorrect is unconscionable. It seems to me that desertification solutions could include restoring the land back to the native nomadic people whom Allan Savory forcibly removed, and helping to protect and restore the elephant population, rather than bringing in methane producing non-native livestock.
