I was flying over the Gulf of Oman when I took this picture with my iPhone. I could see what looked like rivers, swamps, the sea and plenty of sunlight but the land was still desert. There is so much talk about our ability to transform the environment, new technology, people with capital looking for ideas to invest in, human consumption increasing faster than what the planet can provide and greenhouse gases threatening climate change. The oceans have enough water, the deserts enough land and the sun could supply a lot of energy. I suppose we need to find the will and a way to use all that to grow a forest.
