I find this to be a joke, written in sowing the seeds, i bursted in laughter (more sarcasm and wit but yeah..). Sorry for the rather bizarre humor:
“ i read about a professor recently who did a basic study of the deserts of iran and iraq. I do not remember his name anymore, but he came to the conclusion that it would be better to leave the deserts as they are, and refrain from intervening. There is also a theory that it would be better to let Africa’s deserts and the resulting public health problems take their “natural" course."

I have a fast running creek (Flume) right beside me, literally. But due to the demand of micro-hydro systems throughout my Province we can not legally access it! Bummer...
