    Well you wouldn’t expect that the top dry lands official would predict less refrigerators in Alaska…………

  2. Andy Weiss says:

    I thought global warming was causing more heavy rain events. Then why are they worried about desertifacion? Make up your mind!

    I guess before the late 20th century, we had perfect even rains, no droughts, no floods. But wait a minute. Didn’t we have the Dust Bowl way back when? And the Johnstown Flood?

  3. peterhodges says:

    Government is theft.

    anyhows, cooling causes desertification, warming causes the temperate zones to expand

  4. Espen says:

    The image is supposed to show desertification in Mali. But the Sahel has been greening during the supposed CO2-induced warming period since the 1980s.

  5. Bruce says:

    “The top 20cm of soil is all that stands between us and extinction”

    He should get out more. The local police would tell him they get to see lots of herbs which quite amazingly don’t need any soil at all, grown inside houses with black plastic over their windows.

  6. Andy Weiss says:

    Time Magazine said that amount of desert was decreasing, but also increasing due to global warming.

  7. BT Harley says:

    Just recently back, at the hottest time of year, from the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia, arguably Australia’s hottest, between Marble Bar, Fitzroy Crossing and Curtin Airbase (Refugee Camp), an above average year for precipitation, an above average year for temperatures, and guess what? A magnificent year for plant growth.
