    An awful lot of people in the world do not have access to sanitary toilet conditions.

    so he is looking to sell toilets to people who couldn't afford them anyways?

    "In other words, "Reinventing the Toilet" was no job for a plumber."

    I would think that a plumber would have way more knowledge than anyone in this department. His ego far exceeds him.

    Well, maybe but I don't see the harm in trying to improve things. If I read this correctly he is trying to come up with a toilet that does not require water which is a rare and precious resource in most of the world. What's the harm that can come from trying?
