TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

grazing


Desertification happens both by too much and too little grazing. Grazing animals are not the enemy of plants. Actually, it's just like with fruits, where the plant needs animals to eat the fruit to spread seeds; plants evolved in symbiosis with herbivores and they need each other. Plants that do not get eaten have problems, just like plants that get eaten too much have problems. It's not too different from how too much water will drown you and too little with have you dying of thirst, or like too much fire burns you to death and too little may have you die of cold.

Most herds in nature no not consist of a single species and therefore it is wise to consider have various animals to graze your property. In ley farming the technique of having lawns that are grazed is a prime source of good soil; the lawns are either kept for a few years or indefinitely and their soil is used for gardens.

The work of Alan Savory is notable. He has clearly illustrated the importance of grazing. There are also famous examples of avoiding over-grazing, like the documentary in a Changing Climate. Foggage farming and the Fordhall Project is another notable example of proper grazing practices.

Good grazing practices are a good source of good soil. They avoid and reverse desertification. As such, they can be a valuable tool in reclaiming land. In extension, they offer cheap opportunities to those who are aware of these matters to take advantage of lands that mainstream farmers deem worthless. As a business opportunity, bad lands can be turned around in a matter of a few years, making them able to thrive even without added watering in time (such as in Geoff Lawton's Greening the Desert documentary).
