We have the opportunity to bring several billion acres of desertified and depleted land back to its natural state. Increasingly understood by agriculture scientists, low-cost natural permaculture practices that replicate pre-industrial grazing and water management techniques offer us a world-changing opportunity. Once restored, these lands can even support ranching and other forms of agriculture. Biodiversity for a Livable Climate offers a large library of climate restoration research, from which this quiz was developed.
