This video is very interesting if not a little scary.   Planned grazing reverses desertification and it may be the only option on a Macro scale.

Ruminants are the best tool for bringing back brittle grasslands, and there's a tremendous potential to sequester carbon this way.  I love when he says it's the best way, even if you don't eat the cattle.

I found the burning statistic amazing.  Burning 1 hectare of grassland is the equivalent of 6000 vehicle emissions. Just in Africa, they are burning a billion hectares a year.  I also find it amazing that all of the desertification is changing our climate on a macro scale.    I was not aware that the impact was this big.
