[youtube]vpTHi7O66pI[/youtube] I saw this video (same as embedded one above) that made a lot of sense - here is the thumbnail The main reason the climate is warming is desertification. For example, Texas lost about 10% of it's trees the last couple of years from this current drought. Vegetation moderates temperatures - dried up land makes it more extreme...he goes on to say we would get warmer even if all the Chinese coal plants closed, we rode on bikes and electric cars - we need to drive back the desert. That's not hard to do. Just introduce livestock again on the grasslands. Instead of the grass dying in the summer, cows or other livestock animals will be natural gardeners: fertilize the ground with their poop, stomp grass in the ground, till the soil. Over time, the deserts shrink. He goes so far as to say we could cheaply do this and the CO2 levels would be down to pre-industrial levels. Do you know what this means? COWBOYS CAN SAVE THE PLANET!!!
