Desert Rose Project

I have finally put up Project Desert Rose on my website. It has been preoccupying me for the last month: a vast, ambitious project that addresses the fact that all human civilisations, not just the current one, have destroyed the forests that surrounded them. In hot countries, the result is desertification. The responsibility of this generation is to reverse that trend by reafforesting it. It is ambitious, but feasible if only it could be given a small fraction of th emoney currently devoted to militarism.

Reforestation is rational. Militarism is irrational.

The question is, is mankind going to choose to be rational or irrational?
