Well, my reaction to that is, if there's nothing we can do to stop it, then there's no way we could have caused it.

Desertification from overfarming and land clearance is a real phenomenon. You can't stop desertification. Once you've effed it up, it's effed up.

That latter half of what you said is not really true, or the entire planet would be nothing but desert. The process is reversible both naturally and through human action. The ebb and flow of the the Sahara and the Sahel in Africa is a case in point.
