Somebody got me riled up in another thread and I felt like some credentials would add weight to what I was saying, so I dug up:

The Duke of Permaculture (per Geoff Lawton and Sepp Holzer)
The Bad Boy of Permaculture (per Occupy Monsanto)
The Largest Permaculture Voice in the World (internet statistics)
Hardcore Green (treehugger.com)
Permaculture Guru (grist.org)
Genius (Chelsea Green)
Permaculture Maven (ic.org)
Permaculture Mad Scientist (Grit Magazine)
The Polarizing Permie King (New Pioneer Magazine)
Permaculture Expert (Mother Earth News)
(and about a dozen more titles I don't have the time to look up now)

On facebook, Ryan Henry just called me the "Abe Lincoln of Permaculture". I've been called a lot of cool things on facebook, but since I'm actually related to abe lincoln, I thought I would share this one.

How about this:

"Paul Wheaton is the tyrannical dictator of Permies.com, the largest permaculture forum on the web. As a certified master gardener and permaculture designer, he's built an empire around what he calls, 'infecting brains with permaculture'. His forums are full of rich information, and there are a number of great free resources, guides, and articles that can be found on his sister site, Richsoil.com as well.

Most recently, he has worked with rocket mass heater experts Ernie and Erica in developing a 4 DVD set on all things rocket science, and has built a following around his World Domination Gardening DVDs, which detail how to use hugelkultur, swales, and natural ponds to capture and utilize water without irrigation. His recent work with natural buildings based on Mike Oehler's designs have resulted in the creation of the Wofati, a semi underground natural home design.

Crowned the Duke of Permaculture by Geoff Lawton and the Bad Boy of Permaculture by the Occupy Monsanto movement, Paul continues to educate and inspire, and is hosting a PRI certified Permaculture Design and Appropriate Technology course this summer at his property - dubbed Wheaton Labs - in western Montana. More information on the courses can be found here."

Most people only want a paragraph I find, so this can be summarized and shortened a bit. We could have a full and short version on hand, depending on what the publisher needs. What photo do you prefer people use?

Currently that rocket stove link goes to the old 4 DVD set.
