WWIV Additional Notes

Deciduous Rhododendrons would be needed along with
Evergreen varieties.  Their annual leaf fall will add nutrients
to the desert soil for both themselves and the year-round
photosynthetic shrubs.  

Being prolific species of woody plants in the heath family
(Ericaceae), either evergreen or deciduous, and found
mainly in Asia, They are literally food plants for many grubs
and insects, ie. the bottom end of the Food Chain.

Military budgets are an essential requirement to get desalinated
irrigation to such a desert carpet, and additionally to keep up
with its - hopefully - prolific spread.

It's hard to think of a more cost-effective way of hoovering up
atmospheric carbon and dumping it back into the desert ground,
given a couple of decades window of opportunity left for
stabilising the otherwise runaway climate, that is on the verge of
tipping into irreversible changes.
