Using only that model in wiki would make sense but does that model consider monocultures increase over the last 10,000years and significant increase over the last 200 years, along with the industrial revolution obviously. Are deserts growing at an exponential rate
due to monoculture agriculture and a dependency on annual crops? Deserts obviously have a place and function but the rate of growth does not fit into a natural ecological model.

I am fairly new to the whole permaculture world and have been reading/learning. Is it silly to think that reducing-slowing the deforestation of Africa and also bring the deserts back to perennial agro land could reduce the hurricanes in the west?
