The Irrigation System of Planet Earth

  • Rex J. Fleming


The Earth’s irrigation system is one great gift to our planet and has preserved life on Earth.

It is also important in this book as it part of one of the three processes that create the Earth’s thermal blanket and maintain energy balance for the planet. It is also important in every climate-change regime.
