I just finished watching "Water is Life", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hF2QL0D5ww&feature=youtu.be, and I came away thinking, "why isn't sepp holzer a star?" Why does everyone know who Jeremy Lin is and nobody knows who sepp holzer is? sepp holzer brings land back to life and Jeremy Lin plays games for a living. I don't mean to pick on Lin, he just so famous, he's even penetrated my consciousness but the essential question remains: why do we exalt people who accomplish nothing while ignoring people who truly contribute to the world?


I am going to buy his book as a way of saying, 'Thanks'.

I'm with you, Leila, I haven't a clue when it comes to sports stars or most show-biz celebrities......

I think Sepp is a pretty big star in our own little world of sustainability. He seems pretty busy with personal appearances.......
