Scientists believe several thousand years ago the Sahara was not a desert with a few oases, and a blooming garden with forests, lakes and rivers. But the destructive human activities has led to the fact that it was all destroyed. Now people want to at least partially restore the main desert of the world to its former beauty with the help of Project Sahara Forest Project
We have already talked about the project, which involves the installation in the Sahara, many square kilometers of solar panels to provide electricity in Africa and Europe. However, since the project was expanded to a very promising name – Sahara Forest Project. Sahara Forest Project involves the creation of the Sahara (desert, and in other parts of the planet Earth), tens, hundreds and thousands of man-made oasis. They will, and water tanks, and gardens, and large arrays of solar panels.
In these oases will be used by maritime and ocean salt water, purified in the same place (such complexes must first be located not very far from the coast). Moreover, it is useful not only for watering trees and providing water to the people, but also for climate control and cooling of the technical installations. Fertile ground for the same object will be imported from outside – it will turn recycled waste is the largest cities in the world. These artificial oases become centers of life in the desert, around which will be established settlements, trade and logistics centers.
Moreover, the project Sahara Forest Project – this is not a fantasy of scientists and engineers, designed for the distant future.Already, his coordinators have contracted with the government of Qatar to create an experimental artificial oasis in the desert near the city of Doha. If the experiment succeeds, Qataris are ready to renew the contract, writing dozens of construction there of such complexes across the country.
