This Earth Day We Must Start Talking About Desertification

Article read at Huffpost Impact 2016/04/22

 

So sorry, Huffington Post, but we started talking about desertification in the early nineties.  And we (they) still continue to TALK about it.

This Earth Day we should better start applying best practices and success stories at the largest scale.

Today at UN one of the speakers literally told the international community: “There has been enough talking, now it’s time for action“.

Are these just words ?  Then the beat goes on !
