Biblical sources attributed to King Solomon unusual wisdom. Quite a different opinion about it modern ecologists who have studied the consequences of his acts. With the consent of the Phoenician king Solomon sent 80,000 woodcutters in Lebanon to prepare the wood for the construction of a large temple complex. The temple and the palace were built, but the logging devastated a vast area, and the next generation of local people was lack of water. Dry streams, soil erosion has begun, the desert began to hang around the fields and vineyards. This occurred a few thousand years ago, and Lebanon to this day suffers from the devastating consequences.
