Tom Blees has led an eclectic and adventurous life. He skippered a seasonal fishing boat on the Bering Sea for twenty years, which provided the time and freedom to pursue his insatiable curiosity and his passion for travel. Along with his wife, he founded a charitable organization to provide safe water supplies to villagers in Central America. In the course of fundraising to launch the project, he happened upon some little-known technologies that he realized could have a profound global impact if properly employed (or maybe deployed?). After nearly a decade of research, Prescription for the Planet was born. Working hand in hand with the scientists who developed its core concepts, Blees elucidates a grand vision to dramatically improve the lives of people around the world while restoring our planets health. Tom Blees and his wife live in Northern California. This is his first book.
