Eden Restored

Scientific American talkes about how the marshlands in Iraq are being reflooded over the last couple of years (it leaves out the fact that Saddam drained them as a means to 'deal' with the people of the region) and how the flora and fauna are returning to the area.

Very cool stuff!

That was really cool! I remember reading about the science behind reflooding projects in 3-2-1 Contact when I was little, and it was nice to see a real-world example. Improved land fertility can only improve things in Iraq!

Absolutely!

And it's another thing WE are helping the Iraqis to do.
