Can we turn Sahara, one of the biggest deserts in the world into a rainforest? That is the question you would be asking yourself after watching Antonio Donato Nobre’s TED talk. He is an environmentalist, a professor, and an explorer.

Antonio speaks about the Amazon river, an amazing nature that flows everywhere around us. He is opening people’s eyes by talking about the “sky river”. Some might say he has gone a little far about gardening biodiversity by turning deserts into forests. But you cannot deny the message he is trying to deliver.

Antonio talks about the Amazon in a lyrical talk, explaining how the river is a like a heart, with the trees around it acting like lungs feeding us with clean air. The Amazon delivers is an interconnected system of the region, and it provides environmental services to the entire world.

We are now living in an era where pollution is reaching its culmination. And it is necessary that we do something. Should we turn deserts into forests? Probably not, but we should definitely find a way to plant more trees.
