Turning Deserts into Forests

New Geoengineering Idea: Turning Deserts into Forests

Interesting proposal below that proposes foresting the Australian outback and Saharan Desert to “solve climate change.” 

The program could be combined with a major effort to create additional agricultural areas for the poor parts of Africa - a major need. This would combine economic development with sustainable development. 

It would likely require nuclear plants to power the desalinization and pumping of sea water into the interior. Would be much easier to do politically in Australia - Get it started there, and expand into other deserts when it is proven. Could be a win/win.
