We know now that an excess of 350 parts per billion (ppb) of CO2 in the atmosphere will cause increasingly catastrophic weather events in the future. We are now at almost 400 ppb. There is a very small window of opportunity—about 3 to 5 years—to bring that level back to 350 ppb. What if there existed a concept, new to popular thinking, but tested over a period of fifty years and proven successful, that would solve the problem of CO2 sequestration , reverse desertification, and provide as a side benefit many other social and economic improvements?
