Sahara – a huge eucalypt forest

A dream that would cost humanity 2 trillion dollars per year, as shown in a study made by biologist Leonard Ornstein of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and David Rind NASA scientists and Igor Aleinov with the Goddard Institute.

The biotransformation would be possible through a pump system buried deep, extracting from sea water, and planting in a first stage of Eucalyptus grandis.

As the tree would take root, would turn the sand into ground and would cause rain, allowing other trees to grow. If the whole desert Sahara will be a forest would absorb daily 8 million tonnes of carbon in the atmosphere, that’s all daily emissions today.
