Did you know? China is planting a belt of trees to protect land from the expanding Gobi Desert. This Great Green Wall is projected to extend some 4,480 kilometers (2,800 miles), stretching from outer Beijing through Inner Mongolia (Nei Monggol). Unfortunately, recent pressures to expand food production appear to have slowed this tree planting initiative. For more information view the text and data in Chapter 8 of Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization.
Data for each chapter is saved in a Microsoft Excel workbook. MS Excel is spreadsheet software that allows users to manipulate and view numerical data. To use these data files, we recommend that you save them on your computer and then open with MS Excel. They can also be viewed in your web browser. If other spreadsheet software is used to view files, the original formatting may not be retained. Each chapter’s dataset opens to an Index page listing all the files available for the chapter. Click on the linked titles to move to a particular data table, or browse by clicking the tabs at the bottom of the screen. Use the tabs to view graphs.
Note on file format (PDF):
Full chapter datasets are also saved as PDFs for easy viewing and printing. Adobe Acrobat Reader can be used to view PDFs. It can be downloaded for free from http://get.adobe.com/reader.
