Avoiding desertification | Allan Savory 

Grassland ecosystem pioneer Allan Savory talks about his groundbreaking idea of how intense grazing and giving nutrients to grasslands could help avoid desertification in this Q&A with Chris Anderson. TED Archive presents previously unpublished talks from TED conferences. 

Enjoy this unedited talk by Allan Savory . Filmed at TED2014. NOTE: Comments are disabled on this video. We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. 

Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube's comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once. (We'd love to see this change, YouTube.)
