  1. Magnus Larsson gave MY FAVORITE-EVER TED TALK!!!! I have friends in Tunisia Art & Architecture who want Mr. Larsson to create this beautiful structure to stop desertification at the Tatouine Tunisia site of the the Star Wars set!! So stay tuned:) The other part of the project is to install solar-powered generators of condensation (technically: atmospheric water generators) that will provide consistent watering for the planted trees and inhabitants.
    This project is to be sponsored by the Tunisian Renewable Energy Agency.
