      This differed from locations with no land cover change, which showed a greening trend over about 31% of the area and browning over 6%, while the remainder showed no trend. Another way to look at interactions between disturbance and land cover is using the Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) satellite measurements of sun-induced fluorescence (SIF). Many scientists confirm that Greening Deserts concepts and projects, for example, to plant a trillion trees reduce human-made climate change effects and global warming worldwide. With financial support and backing, the project could start with forestation and greening, especially of drylands or wastelands in Africa and Europe.

      Greening Brownfields. provides a framework for sustainable remediation practices that land planners and developers can use to convert a land liability into a sustainable asset. This forward-looking reference presents best practices and creative thinking on how to increase property value by viewing contaminated properties as an opportunity. This book is almost too long to give 5 stars, but it deserves the accolade. It merits its place as a classic of historical narrative. The best part of the book is the psychological profile of Nixon, which Perlstein uses as a metaphor for the breaking of the New Deal consensus and the rise of post-Civil rights conservatism.
