The Sahara Forest Project Will Turn Desert into a Water, Food & Energy Source

The Sahara Forest Project is an ambitiously green initiative being undertaken by Norway and Jordan to turn a 2.2 million square meter plot of arid desert into a thriving eco environment that will hopefully generate energy, food and drinking water.

The Sahara Forest Project (although located in one of the most inhospitable environments imaginable) will function as a result of a surprisingly logical interdependent chain of eco technology that involves saltwater greenhouses, a solar-powered steam turbine, and huge tracts of agriculture.
