Some Good News for the New Year

I've been blogging mostly about controversial issues and "doom and gloom" predictions. I decided to share some good news.

With all the talk of global warming and the peril our planet is in, all that it takes is a drive across country to make you scratch your head in wonder. There is still a lot of nearly pristine land and abundant resources. There are blue skies. Why aren't we using them?

The problem is how to take advantage of these extra resources with the main problem being water supply. This article shows how researchers have developed an approach to provide grazing lands in arid lands that can be irrigated with salt water.

By doing this, they can free up other lands for typical agriculture. Go BYU!
