Reviewer: Morton Bast The most massive tsunami perfect storm is bearing down upon us. This perfect storm is mounting a grim reality, increasingly grim reality, and we are facing that reality with the full belief that we can solve our problems with technology, and that’s very understandable. Now, this perfect storm that we are facing is the result of our rising population, rising towards 10 billion people, land that is turning to desert, and, of course, climate change. Now there’s no question about it at all: we will only solve the problem of replacing fossil fuels with technology. But fossil fuels, carbon — coal and gas — are by no means the only thing that is causing climate change. Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert, and this happens only when we create too much bare ground. There’s no other cause. And I intend to focus on most of the world’s land that is turning to desert. But I have for you a very simple message that offers more hope than you can imagine. We have environments where humidity is guaranteed throughout the year. On those, it is almost impossible to create vast areas of bare ground. No matter what you do, nature covers it up so quickly. And we have environments where we have months of humidity followed by months of dryness, and that is where desertification is occurring. Fortunately, with space technology now, we can look at it from space, and when we do, you can see the proportions fairly well. Generally, what you see in green is not desertifying, and what you see in brown is, and these are by far the greatest areas of the Earth. About two thirds, I would guess, of the world is desertifying. I took this picture in the Tihamah Desert while 25 millimeters — that’s an inch of rain — was falling. Think of it in terms of drums of water, each containing 200 liters. Over 1,000 drums of water fell on every hectare of that land that day. The next day, the land looked like this. Where had that water gone? Some of it ran off as flooding, but most of the water that soaked into the soil simply evaporated out again, exactly as it does in your garden if you leave the soil uncovered. Now, because the fate of water and carbon are tied to soil organic matter, when we damage soils, you give off carbon. Carbon goes back to the atmosphere. Now you’re told over and over, repeatedly, that desertification is only occurring in arid and semi-arid areas of the world, and that tall grasslands like this one in high rainfall are of no consequence. But if you do not look at grasslands but look down into them, you find that most of the soil in that grassland that you’ve just seen is bare and covered with a crust of algae, leading to increased runoff and evaporation. That is the cancer of desertification that we do not recognize till its terminal form. Now we know that desertification is caused by livestock, mostly cattle, sheep and goats, overgrazing the plants, leaving the soil bare and giving off methane. Almost everybody knows this, from nobel laureates to golf caddies, or was taught it, as I was. Now, the environments like you see here, dusty environments in Africa where I grew up, and I loved wildlife, and so I grew up hating livestock because of the damage they were doing. And then my university education as an ecologist reinforced my beliefs. Well, I have news for you. We were once just as certain that the world was flat. We were wrong then, and we are wrong again. And I want to invite you now to come along on my journey of reeducation and discovery. When I was a young man, a young biologist in Africa, I was involved in setting aside marvelous areas as future national parks. Now no sooner — this was in the 1950s — and no sooner did we remove the hunting, drum-beating people to protect the animals, than the land began to deteriorate, as you see in this park that we formed. Now, no livestock were involved, but suspecting that we had too many elephants now, I did the research and I proved we had too many, and I recommended that we would have to reduce their numbers and bring them down to a level that the land could sustain. Now, that was a terrible decision for me to have to make, and it was political dynamite, frankly. So our government formed a team of experts to evaluate my research. They did. They agreed with me, and over the following years, we shot 40,000 elephants to try to stop the damage. And it got worse, not better. Loving elephants as I do, that was the saddest and greatest blunder of my life, and I will carry that to my grave. One good thing did come out of it. It made me absolutely determined to devote my life to finding solutions. When I came to the United States, I got a shock, to find national parks like this one desertifying as badly as anything in Africa. And there’d been no livestock on this land for over 70 years. And I found that American scientists had no explanation for this except that it is arid and natural. So I then began looking at all the research plots I could over the whole of the Western United States where cattle had been removed to prove that it would stop desertification, but I found the opposite, as we see on this research station, where this grassland that was green in 1961, by 2002 had changed to that situation. And the authors of the position paper on climate change from which I obtained these pictures attribute this change to “unknown processes.” Clearly, we have never understood what is causing desertification, which has destroyed many civilizations and now threatens us globally. We have never understood it. Take one square meter of soil and make it bare like this is down here, and I promise you, you will find it much colder at dawn and much hotter at midday than that same piece of ground if it’s just covered with litter, plant litter. You have changed the microclimate. Now, by the time you are doing that and increasing greatly the percentage of bare ground on more than half the world’s land, you are changing macroclimate. But we have just simply not understood why was it beginning to happen 10,000 years ago? Why has it accelerated lately? We had no understanding of that. What we had failed to understand was that these seasonal humidity environments of the world, the soil and the vegetation developed with very large numbers of grazing animals, and that these grazing animals developed with ferocious pack-hunting predators. Now, the main defense against pack-hunting predators is to get into herds, and the larger the herd, the safer the individuals. Now, large herds dung and urinate all over their own food, and they have to keep moving, and it was that movement that prevented the overgrazing of plants, while the periodic trampling ensured good cover of the soil, as we see where a herd has passed. This picture is a typical seasonal grassland. It has just come through four months of rain, and it’s now going into eight months of dry season. And watch the change as it goes into this long dry season. Now, all of that grass you see aboveground has to decay biologically before the next growing season, and if it doesn’t, the grassland and the soil begin to die. Now, if it does not decay biologically, it shifts to oxidation, which is a very slow process, and this smothers and kills grasses, leading to a shift to woody vegetation and bare soil, releasing carbon. To prevent that, we have traditionally used fire. But fire also leaves the soil bare, releasing carbon, and worse than that, burning one hectare of grassland gives off more, and more damaging, pollutants than 6,000 cars. And we are burning in Africa, every single year, more than one billion hectares of grasslands, and almost nobody is talking about it. We justify the burning, as scientists, because it does remove the dead material and it allows the plants to grow. Now, looking at this grassland of ours that has gone dry, what could we do to keep that healthy? And bear in mind, I’m talking of most of the world’s land now. Okay? We cannot reduce animal numbers to rest it more without causing desertification and climate change. We cannot burn it without causing desertification and climate change. What are we going to do? There is only one option, I’ll repeat to you, only one option left to climatologists and scientists, and that is to do the unthinkable, and to use livestock, bunched and moving, as a proxy for former herds and predators, and mimic nature. There is no other alternative left to mankind. So let’s do that. So on this bit of grassland, we’ll do it, but just in the foreground. We’ll impact it very heavily with cattle to mimic nature, and we’ve done so, and look at that. All of that grass is now covering the soil as dung, urine and litter or mulch, as every one of the gardeners amongst you would understand, and that soil is ready to absorb and hold the rain, to store carbon, and to break down methane. And we did that, without using fire to damage the soil, and the plants are free to grow. When I first realized that we had no option as scientists but to use much-vilified livestock to address climate change and desertification, I was faced with a real dilemma. How were we to do it? We’d had 10,000 years of extremely knowledgeable pastoralists bunching and moving their animals, but they had created the great manmade deserts of the world. Then we’d had 100 years of modern rain science, and that had accelerated desertification, as we first discovered in Africa and then confirmed in the United States, and as you see in this picture of land managed by the federal government. Clearly more was needed than bunching and moving the animals, and humans, over thousands of years, had never been able to deal with nature’s complexity. But we biologists and ecologists had never tackled anything as complex as this. So rather than reinvent the wheel, I began studying other professions to see if anybody had. And I found there were planning techniques that I could take and adapt to our biological need, and from those I developed what we call holistic management and planned grazing, a planning process, and that does address all of nature’s complexity and our social, environmental, economic complexity. Today, we have young women like this one teaching villages in Africa how to put their animals together into larger herds, plan their grazing to mimic nature, and where we have them hold their animals overnight — we run them in a predator-friendly manner, because we have a lot of lands, and so on — and where they do this and hold them overnight to prepare the crop fields, we are getting very great increases in crop yield as well. Let’s look at some results. This is land close to land that we manage in Zimbabwe. It has just come through four months of very good rains it got that year, and it’s going into the long dry season. But as you can see, all of that rain, almost of all it, has evaporated from the soil surface. Their river is dry despite the rain just having ended, and we have 150,000 people on almost permanent food aid. Now let’s go to our land nearby on the same day, with the same rainfall, and look at that. Our river is flowing and healthy and clean. It’s fine. The production of grass, shrubs, trees, wildlife, everything is now more productive, and we have virtually no fear of dry years. And we did that by increasing the cattle and goats 400 percent, planning the grazing to mimic nature and integrate them with all the elephants, buffalo, giraffe and other animals that we have. But before we began, our land looked like that. This site was bare and eroding for over 30 years regardless of what rain we got. Okay? Watch the marked tree and see the change as we use livestock to mimic nature. This was another site where it had been bare and eroding, and at the base of the marked small tree, we had lost over 30 centimeters of soil. Okay? And again, watch the change just using livestock to mimic nature. And there are fallen trees in there now, because the better land is now attracting elephants, etc. This land in Mexico was in terrible condition, and I’ve had to mark the hill because the change is so profound. (Applause) I began helping a family in the Karoo Desert in the 1970s turn the desert that you see on the right there back to grassland, and thankfully, now their grandchildren are on the land with hope for the future. And look at the amazing change in this one, where that gully has completely healed using nothing but livestock mimicking nature, and once more, we have the third generation of that family on that land with their flag still flying. The vast grasslands of Patagonia are turning to desert as you see here. The man in the middle is an Argentinian researcher, and he has documented the steady decline of that land over the years as they kept reducing sheep numbers. They put 25,000 sheep in one flock, really mimicking nature now with planned grazing, and they have documented a 50-percent increase in the production of the land in the first year. We now have in the violent Horn of Africa pastoralists planning their grazing to mimic nature and openly saying it is the only hope they have of saving their families and saving their culture. Ninety-five percent of that land can only feed people from animals. I remind you that I am talking about most of the world’s land here that controls our fate, including the most violent region of the world, where only animals can feed people from about 95 percent of the land. What we are doing globally is causing climate change as much as, I believe, fossil fuels, and maybe more than fossil fuels. But worse than that, it is causing hunger, poverty, violence, social breakdown and war, and as I am talking to you, millions of men, women and children are suffering and dying. And if this continues, we are unlikely to be able to stop the climate changing, even after we have eliminated the use of fossil fuels. I believe I’ve shown you how we can work with nature at very low cost to reverse all this. We are already doing so on about 15 million hectares on five continents, and people who understand far more about carbon than I do calculate that, for illustrative purposes, if we do what I am showing you here, we can take enough carbon out of the atmosphere and safely store it in the grassland soils for thousands of years, and if we just do that on about half the world’s grasslands that I’ve shown you, we can take us back to pre-industrial levels, while feeding people. I can think of almost nothing that offers more hope for our planet, for your children, and their children, and all of humanity. Thank you. (Applause) Thank you. (Applause) Thank you, Chris. Chris Anderson: Thank you. I have, and I’m sure everyone here has, A) a hundred questions, B) wants to hug you. I’m just going to ask you one quick question. When you first start this and you bring in a flock of animals, it’s desert. What do they eat? How does that part work? How do you start? Allan Savory: Well, we have done this for a long time, and the only time we have ever had to provide any feed is during mine reclamation, where it’s 100 percent bare. But many years ago, we took the worst land in Zimbabwe, where I offered a £5 note in a hundred-mile drive if somebody could find one grass in a hundred-mile drive, and on that, we trebled the stocking rate, the number of animals, in the first year with no feeding, just by the movement, mimicking nature, and using a sigmoid curve, that principle. It’s a little bit technical to explain here, but just that. CA: Well, I would love to — I mean, this such an interesting and important idea. The best people on our blog are going to come and talk to you and try and — I want to get more on this that we could share along with the talk.AS: Wonderful. CA: That is an astonishing talk, truly an astonishing talk, and I think you heard that we all are cheering you on your way. Thank you so much.AS: Well, thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Chris. (Applause)

    On the one hand his discovery is amazing, and revolutionary. And we should all know about it. But my God, he shot and killed 40,000 elephants as a mistake!!?? WTF!!! That's the most fucked up thing I've ever heard. It breaks my heart, and I kind of think he deserves to do jailtime for that. I realixe that's probably not a popular belief, but I dont care. I hope we as a species will start to implement live stalk grazing on the lands instead of keeping them in cramped cages. When will humans realize that we need to stop messing with nature, and allow it to return to what it does best, creating a balanced world.

    The problem in the US is that we have destroyed most of our grasslands. The vast sea of prairie is now intensely cultivated in a sterile way of agriculture, that destroys the topsoil and leaves the land bare between crops. Most of our cattle are not fed on grasslands; they’re grown in feedlots with food (like corn) which they’re not even able to eat without massive amounts of antibiotics to keep them from bloating, grown on what was once grassland. Some enormous changes have to take place.

    All you naysayers out there, you do realize, don't you, that North America was once covered in vast herds of buffalo numbering in the millions? They didn't destroy the planet with their farts. They didn't turn the land into vast deserts. With that amount of grazing livestock, the Earth should have been sweltering sauna 10,000 years ago.
    As we all know, it was quite the opposite.
    Come on, people. Use a little bit of common sense. If you're low on common sense, don't worry – it only takes a little bit of it, as I said.

    So, knowing this information is "out there" — and realizing that it's not being utilized — my first inclination is to wonder who must be benefitting by NOT implementing this wonderful no-brainer to reverse humanity's impending doom due to climate change? Most times, when logical solutions are found but not implemented, there's somebody at the top profitting from the lack of movement toward change The genius of this solution is so heart-warming to me. I hope and pray that a worldwide movement begins which will re-green the earth. Thank you for your dedication and years of work, Allan Savory.

    I suspect this shows the danger of a good TED talk. The speaker is likeable, charismatic and makes a persuasive case about a topic that most of us haven't studied, yet if you start start to research the topic in other sources then suddenly there's all this scepticism and doubt coming from relevant experts and academics. From what I can tell, the ideas in this TED talk are not part of peer-reviewed science and the results he talks about have not been successfully replicated.

    We have more trees in N America than we did 100 years ago. When people grow commercial crops in green houses, they increase the CO2 400%!

    Plants breath CO2! They thrive with increased CO2 and increased temperature.

    The livestock he mentioned tear up the grass because of their hooves! Camels do not damage grass because they have soft pads, not hooves. There are more camels in Australia than in the Middle East! They now export them to the MENA region.

    In Brazil, they poured bad oranges and orange rinds in a large area, then they were excluded from working here because of law suits for 15 years. When they returned, there were trees and animals everywhere after no intervention at all.

    "…soon as we removed the hunting, drum beating people from that land to protect the animals…" He is referring to the African natives that he found rightfully living on their land, and of course you don't "remove" someone from their land, by asking politely. He justifies this by saying it was to protect the animals, and yet they were coexisting peacefully on green grasslands till he came and shot 40,000 elephants and turned it into a desolate arid area. His ONLY regret is the elephants he killed.

    If you want to destroy the Earth's arid ecosystems, go ahead and "green" all the deserts. Deserts are naturally occurring and except for their peripheral incursion into habitable areas, there is no reason to "green" them. By the way, if you want to "reverse climate change," start with the Earth when it had levels of CO2 higher than today when the planet was cooler as opposed to warmer! The Vostok samples proved this decades ago, and the evidence is irrefutable.

    Perhaps you think you know something about atmospheric gases when the reality is that you do not. There is no linear relationship between CO2 and planet warming. Did you know all of the planets in our star system have been warming over the past 100 years? We have real data for that, as opposed to satellite measurements of a non-existent rise in sea level not detectable by ships taking reliable measurements at sea level.

    Better yet, let's embark on a plan to reverse the ocean currents and see if human beings really are the most survivable species on Earth. The truth is that there is nothing to reverse, no way to reverse it if there was, and no ability of humans to affect more than .05% of the earth's atmospheric gases by any means.

    This is a taxation scheme meant to ensure the flow of billions into the coffers of the political class, unelected bureaucrats, and their sponsors. Don't be fooled by junk science propaganda designed to fuel the money laundering schemes of the wealthy on the backs of the poor.

    since the 70s we have been putting more and more water in sealed containers….it can be anything from simple bottled water to dish soaps sports drinks, soups, closed chillers units, antifreeze…the list is very large and goes on

    water is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom….which makes it a molecule …one molecule is what we call vapor….it is only when a bunch of those molecules start clinging together that it is liquid
    the reason this is important is because H2O doesnt act like you think it does…because as it evaporates and becomes a vapor those molecules separate again

    now then…to the climate part
    every cooling system has a certain amount of coolant that is need to keep it at optimum temperature…earth is no different
    for instance take 2 pots of water…one 1/4 full and one all full…..heat them up at the same temperature…..the one that is 1/4 full heats up faster makes steam (humidity) faster

    same for the earth …since all this water is being put in stored containers …it is not circulated …..less H2O molecules in the air….they cant combine to make liquid that can circulate

    right now there are the same amount of H2O molecules on earth as there were in the beginning, so no, those molecules are not gone…they havent went into space….the reason they are gone is because we put them in sealed containers

    so if we deal with the water shortages ….water in sealed containers……then we can deal with the climate heating up

    or we can just wait till some of the ice is melted….yup

    because H2O as a solid doesnt circulate or evaporate till it is melted….once it is melted a little…the ground water and the heat index temps will be back to normal

    as I said…this is unrefined, I wrote it in a hurry to reply to a USA TODAY video on water disappearing

    I have this idea in my head and cant get it out in a coherent way for most people to understand…yes it goes way out there, but it is something that no one else is addressing , the water levels around the globe have decreased…..look at california, all the reservoirs…..michigan residents have stated that nestle has made their ground water drop in their rivers and streams…..there are documentaries on this

    I wish someone would actually look at this because I'm certain this is a big deal

    but as I said…we can just wait for the polar caps to melt and replenish the H2O molecules that are able to circulate
    remember…H2O is just a molecule until it combines with another H2O molecule…then it becomes a gas, then a mist, then moisture, then water…..ask yourself…how many H2O molecules in a visible water drop…the answer is
    there are 1.67 sextillion H2O molecules in a water drop…fact
    https://www.thoughtco.com/atoms-in-a-drop-of-water-609425

    you have to understand that H2O is not water…it is a molecule , and only becomes water when it is combined with a lot of other H2O molecules

    H2O goes through a cycle that is necessary for the earths temperature to remain optimum…when there isnt enough it alters that cycle

    I'm sorry if you people dont understand this, but this is correct

    the good news is, there are plenty of H2O molecules in stasis in the form of ice ….once enough has melted, the earth will go back to its optimum temperature because those molecules have been put back into the cycle

    but doesn't the green new deal call for the reduction of livestock? We only have 12 years left to live on the planet before we drown. my kids tell me this from school. how come the truth always changes? Why don't we have the real truth now? Are we always guessing?

    Wow! Incredible! All those politicians who make all the noise about climate change should implement this solution! But unfortunately all they're interested in is carbon tax, and not actual solutions. The fact that they're doing nothing to promote this discovery after a good six years says it all… There is no $$$ for lobbyists and politicians to make from such a simple and effective solution!

    I came across a property on the South Island of New Zealand using Allan's philosophies back in 2001 and combine this with Albrecht's philosophies and that's working with nature all the way! Unknowingly on our current property we have been working along similar lines and beginning to get results. After watching this I will go into Allan's method with much more vigor.

    The only problem with this is that "Global Warming" is a hoax; a lie, that all you uneducated people are falling for. Why not just fertilize the desert land with all the millions of dead babies that liberal abortion mills are churning out on a daily basis?
