I didn't hear the word clay mentioned in the Chinese newsreel--but innoculation with nitrogen fixing bacteria was. I guess I would have hard time denying a UN secretary ( if I understood that correctly) interview on the subject. If HALF the photos of reversing the Bucuqi desert are true, it's just mind-boggling.
Mortenson admits that the innovation his father developed was not from an episode of Star Trek--it was a simple accidental discovery by a lifetime HVAC repair man. Had something to do with aeration--patented process, I'm sure he's not chomping at the bit to hand out recipe cards
Chinese newsreel also placed alot
of stock in gridpattern of straw
, I saw zillions of solar
panels (income), and quite a lot of piped water--which is dubious, for sure.
In either case, I see....dare I say it...HOPE.
I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop. I feel like it can't be true. Like, we've been fighting this thing for...what...when did Egypt extend irrigation past the banks of the Nile? Three thousand years or so? It just couldn't be that easy. Could it?
