The Desert Will Bloom

Postby Space Cowboy » Tue Jul 13, 2010 12:17 pm

In the July 1964 issue of Desert Magazine, with the punctuation-challenged title; 'the MAN and the PROCESS that will bring new life to desert lands', written by Choral Pepper:

"IN A RELATIVELY short time desert dwellers will live where water is now too alkali to drink. Fishermen along isolated shores of the Arabian Sea will carry fresh fish to areas which cannot support human life today. Fertile areas of Baja will have water to thrive. Colorado River water allotted to Southern California coastal areas will be released to irrigate waterless land. Arid, burnished deserts will turn green. The complexion of the earth will change. And with it, so will man."

Anyone know what happened?

Reality happened.

Besides, would such a world really be than ideal? I'd much rather have desert than that. The desert is spiritually cleansing to the soul and, as such is too precious to convert.

We love the Sonoran desert year around. We camp in the desert even in the summer time. We always carefully prepare for our summer desert trips.
