Desertification spreads faster and faster
One of the many worrying consequences of climate change and global warming is desertification. To an expert it is currently spreading like cancer in the Middle East and in NorthAfrica.
Indeed, to data provided by The United Nations Development Programme’s 2009 Arab Human Development Report desertification is threatening 2.8 million square kilometers of land in this region.
With less water available to more people the situation will become even more explosive in the region if nothing was done to put a stop to this phenomenon.
