Bill Gates publishes an astonishing synergistic review in a book about harvesting the biosphere

According to Bill Gates per personal blog, The Gates Notes, but the Microsoft co-founder turned multibillionaire philanthropist has gone in MAX mode this time. His latest review is of Harvesting the Biosphere: What We Have Taken From Nature, a book by scientist and professor Vaclav Smil — and despite the subject’s relative abstruseness, Gates has lavished his review with an detailed, interactive layout filled with infographics, video interviews, and flashy scrolling effects.

“There is no author whose books I look forward to more than Vaclav Smil, It’s true that each book only sells a few thousand copies. But I’m trying to read everything he writes.

The book is a bit dry and I had to look up a number of terms that were unfamiliar to me, It shows a clear and as numeric a picture as is possible of how humans have altered the biosphere.”

— Bill Gates

We still wonder why Bill has invested so much time, effort, and resources into such an cabalistic topic.
