Two Important TED Talks
A lot of TED Talks are full of “progressive ideology” that is, at its core, anti-human. Be they scientists who profess to look at empirical evidence, or outright progressive ideologues, they can’t help but sprinkle their talks with “progressive” chatter, talking points and buzzwords.
In a TED Talk by Allan Savory, titled “How to green the world’s deserts and reverse climate change”, he talks of desertification.
“Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert,” Savory says.
Fascinatingly, he claims that “climate change” is not just produced by human emissions, but by the desertification of land, which worldwide is destroying many thousands of hectares of land each year. Through years of study of the process of desertification, he admits that he, and other “experts” got it wrong, and instead of stopping desertification, they caused it to get worse.
He gives us hope, however, that there are ways to reverse desertification, by doing basically opposite of what they had done in the past, and they are seeing startling results in many areas of the world. Barren deserts are greening up. Water is being retained. Rivers are returning. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. It is not just theory, but is being put into practice with remarkable results.

In the second TED Talk, by Norwegian Ole Morten Olesen, we learn of a way to change barren, sandy deserts into rich soil suitable for farming, that changes the desert into a green oasis.
From the video description:
Water is a scarce resource that many of us take for granted, but unfortunately large parts of Earth’s population do not have that luxury. Ole and his innovation team have tried to solve an enormous task: to turn sand into soil. Even more exciting – they believe they have solved the problem!
Listen to Ole talk us through the concept behind turning deserts and sand dunes green. How their technology could change the face of the planet, and solve parts of the global environmental problem. Presenting the game-changing concept at TEDxArendal, he will show you the fascinating images of the green lush results!

The important point of these two videos is that anyone can dream up a theory, but if the theory, once put into practice, (like communism?) doesn’t work, it is a theory to be discarded.
Allan Savory has admitted he was wrong, and now has a way of reversing the damage he, and his fellow scientists caused. He is to be commended for that.
Ole Morten Olesen was not content to “join the club”, so to speak, but looked outside the box and found an answer that had eluded others for years.
Unfortunately, modern scientists, the so-called Experts, tend to get wrapped up in their ideology and their cozy cliques and cannot see beyond their noses. We need scientists who are able to think beyond the bounds of the current ideology, if we are to solve the problems that science is capable of solving, while all the while recognizing that science can’t solve every earthly problem. Science is not a religion, for instance, and cannot serve spiritual needs. And it has never been able to eliminate the common cold.
