Reading comprehension: Now scientists are trying to turn deserts into good land again. They want to bring water to the deserts, so people can live and grow food there. However, more and more land is becoming the deserts. Why is this happening? There are two reasonsland and wood. In many places the trees have been cut down because the land was needed for people.
In other parts, the trees are cut down because their wood is wanted. But many people dont know that in most places the trees wont be replaced.
