Viktor Schauberger's knowledge of natural energies led to inventions that, if properly harnessed, might solve the global energy crisis. Most people, however, continue to find his ideas difficult to understand and accept.
Jane Cobbald initially became interested in Schauberger's theories when she realized that, if she used a copper trowel in her garden, her potato harvest would greatly increase. Here, she does not try to give readers a definitive explanation of his ideas, but takes a biographical approach as she teases out the various threads of his thinking in his own words. She shows how his approach developed over the course of his eventful life, leading the reader on a journey through his discoveries, interspersed with lively anecdotes that illustrate the way his mind worked.
In this new concise introduction to Schauberger's life and thinking, the author asks the kinds of questions that Schauberger asked: What energy do trout use to stay virtually motionless in quickly flowing mountain streams or to climb waterfalls? How does a tall tree draw water from its roots and all the way to the topmost branches?
Viktor Schauberger's insights into natural energies are explained in clear, unassuming, and entertaining words. The author shows that his remarkable inventions can reveal much-needed solutions to our energy, transport, and health issues.
Includes an exclusive interview with Ingeborg Schauberger, Viktor's daughter-in-law.
