Isn't the "greener" solution to expend as little resource
reengineering the desert as possible (and avoid potential negative
consequence of mega-scale weather alterations) and simple use the
regional climate for a purpose to which it is already ideally suited?
Algae farming for example.  What works in Death Valley surely could be
implemented in the Sahara, no?
