Terraforming the Sahara Desert

In an effort to fight climate change, the Sahara Desert could be going green… literally.

Plans are being made to terraform the entire Sahara desert; changing it from a dry, barren landscape to a lush green space. If successful, the transformation could remove 7.6 billion tons of atmospheric carbon yearly. How could we change the nature of such a vast, isolated landscape?
