This is going to be MY OWN talking points for this book. This will be the start of our monthly book review:
What did you think of the book including its purpose?
To start out with, the title of the book (in my opinion) didn’t give much justice to what was written.
- Talked about the Amazon rain forest
- Energy from the grain and woods
- Soil contributing to CO2
- Rotation of earth and gravitational pull affects the tides
- Microbes and plastic in the oceans
- Our heat is going into the water
- talk of greens ash and insects
- use of charcoal – fire is burning out the trees and is making the earth hot
- city space as land in the world (3%)
- towns in New York and Denver and nature
- talk of dead sea to evaporate
- In Syria- Damascus gates of people in local market (of fruits) There is no water. Water comes from bottled drinking water.
- Air is a product of 400 million years of forest breath. “Rocks have desires”
- Bonsai plants can make you feel more tolerant and have more understanding.
- Acknowledgements started after 68% of the book
- This author was overly descriptive with thought that diverted from the subject material far too often.
- Written very flowery – sometimes hard to understand his subject as he kept changing his thoughts.
- When he stopped writing for himself and acclaim as a poet and just started sharing info it is very informative. Otherwise it was a messy hodge-podge.
- The interconnectedness of insects fungi and various insects was interesting
