As a physicist I have my own biases. I'll happily listen to solar and industrial drivers in Climate change and one thing I mostly ignore is biological drivers in nature.
Allen Savory trained as a biologist and worked in Africa and was confronted by desertification.
About now I would normally begin to zone out…
But I watched Savory's talk at TED and I now have a completely different understanding of the way that animals and the land and climate interact.
Mind you Allen Savory had his prejudices too – his opinion was that desertificati0on was due to overgrazing and bad management by the pastoral communities. He expected that National Parks organised by scientists like him would give the land a chance. He was shocked to find that his view informed by his biological knowledge was wrong.
This started a lifelong quest to find the truth…
Feel free to watch this a few times – Savory is a quiet and convincing speaker.
Please comment – how did the talk strike you?
