Pitch

afforestation of deserts.


Description

Summary

we can reverse the process of global warming by reforestation of deserts.This will help us to eradicate poverty ,pollution,global warming and climate change.This is very much essential for survival living beings in this planet.
The afforestation of deserts had already been started in some parts of the world like Gobi desert in China ,desert in Israel etc.In India It can be started in Rajasthan.
CHINA is good at building defensive walls. But the record of its most celebrated one is mixed. In 1211 Mongol armies rode round the fortification in Zhangjiakou, the northern gateway to Beijing. Today the city lies on one of two routes that bring another relentless foe to the capital: sand. Blown from northern deserts and degraded drylands, it coats roads, clogs railways and desiccates pastures. According to Greenpeace, just 2% of China’s original forests are intact. Decades of rampant logging and overgrazing have speeded the degradation of its land and soil; over a quarter of its territory is now covered in sand
