Could the Sahara desert become green again ?

sahara-desert-camelsWe have seen it previously, the Amazon Rainforest could become a desert because of deforestation and climate change. As I noted in May a three degrees Celsius increase would destroy it by up to 75 percent.

But could global warming help the Sahara region becoming green again ? To National Geographic it could be the case as rainfall increases in neighboring regions like the Sahel.

Of course this greening won’t be occuring as fast as the Amazon and other rainforest destructions, but still it is one of these rare good news about climate change.
