- Can you post a link to the criticism that you found? I'm always interested in seeing the other side of an argument but on the surface I really like the idea that this Savoy is throwing around.Mar 21, 2013

- -- Thanks for posting the links. I think Savory in his TED Talk and other more extensive lectures presents some interesting ideas about the causes of desertification.
The idea that large herds of grazing herbivores and the plants they graze on evolved together doesn't seem like a big stretch. I suspect that we also need to include predatory animals into this bigger picture. Whether or not we can mimic nature in the way that he's attempting to do remains a good question.
Hopefully, there isn't much question about whether or not the current models of agriculture are working for our long term interest.Mar 22, 2013
