What would happen if deserts took over the world; if they spread throughout the planet until they did away with all forms of life. No, this is not an idea for a science fiction novel; this is a reality that has already begun to take place among us. Temperatures are on the rise, the poles are melting, it’s raining less and the intensity of tropical cyclones is increasing. Drought and desertification are spreading like a mortal plague. And these are not predictions; there is no doubt that this is actually happening.
Doubts are of a different nature: Is man the main culprit in climate change and the breakdown of the environment? Why are there still doubts that he is? Is there something we can do to avoid disaster? These are not questions involving an improbably scenario; the scenario is as real as the degradation that surrounds us.
