Anyone reading this?
Tons of great info, mucho.
He puts a lot of great b/4 and after pictures, but, much like his other books leaves out pictures and drawings on too much stuff.
He isn't going to spoon feed us -- I get it, but sometimes, pictures can do what words can't, especially when we are dealing with translation (or numbskulls like me) and/or the limited time frame for implementing his superior ideas, due to large scale changes and degradation to our planet.
Sepp does uber-incredible work and his methods for making lakes is astounding.
I was surprised he advocates spreading salt from a desalination plant on the road in the winter, as this would seem to not be in the book of nature so to speak. I would be interested to know why he thinks that is good. I think salting roads for ice is bad for a whole huge list of reason and it actually doesn't work below a certain temp (I don't live in coldsville any more so I forgot what temp).
An excellent read.
