If we could just take all the extra carbon out of the air, change it in to plant cell walls by growing the plants, and then put it in the sand... think of how many problems we'd solve simultaneously!
Should buy that desert real estate while it's still cheap haha.
But seriously this could be a great tool to slowdown the expansion of the Sahara desert
