How can we change arid climate to amazon forest ?

Recommended Posts

For a long time , i think that problematic.

Can closed, maybe for one or two square kilometres, checked lands make greener. So from desert to forest .

Underearth ice machine and artifical cloud .

So we can build where we want a central park ?

It is possible? We do not realize ?

Edit: spelling

..if it will be under a hermetic container or building i.e. greenhouse, it might be even on the Moon or Mars..

Problem of desert is not just shortage of water, but shortage of nutrients. Normal soil is thousands of years accumulating the remains of living organisms, from the smallest fungi, microbes, to the biggest trees,. which died, were consumed and expelled by other living organisms and they became soil. Barren soil lacks nutrients required for plants to grow.

..because it is not profitable..

If population of the planet will be growing at current rate, prices of food will be growing as well with higher demand, new technologies will be created to feed the world. Only the richest will be able to buy food as we know today, created natural ways vegetables, fruits and meats. The poorest will get some genetically modified organisms, or compounds expelled by GMO microorganisms (like currently yeast expel ethanol that we drink).

Maybe not from arid to rain forest, but see regenerative farming for some pretty spectacular results. Key is keeping soils covered. With some sort of mulch where plant life has left it bare.

It can be profitable.....If more immediate shorter term profit is sacrificed.

There could be incentive to change  farming practices with  carbon sequestration  rewards for farmers. 

At this time, farmers are seen more as part of the problem. There are groups trying to show how that could change to make them a bigger part of the solution. Regenerative farming  appears to be quite effective. I'm very happy with the results here. Fence lines can give a pretty dramatic comparison.
