BEWARE OF THE UN TAKEOVER OF AMERICAN WATER SUPPLIES

Dave Hodges September 7, 2014

Millions of children under five die every year due to toxic germ-infested unsafe drinking water. This means that almost four babies a minute die from a lack of water according to UN-Water's estimations. In the 2014 World Water Report released on the eve of World Water Day, the UN said that 768 million people do not have adequate access to water, 2.5 billion do not have access to improved sanitation. Among the deprived are a significant number of people in Detroit. It would seem that the problems of the third world are being visited upon Detroit and soon the rest of the country.

Obama Refuses to Bail Out the People of Detroit

Obama has taken American taxpayer funds to bail out the privately owned General Motors. Obama has helped himself to the same pot of money and has devastated this country by bailing out key Wall Street businesses (e.g. Goldman Sachs). However, when it comes to helping 700,000 residents of Detroit, they are not worthy of an Obama bailout, even when their health and their very lives are being put in danger by severe third world economic conditions that are currently present in Detroit.

Detroit is trying to come to grips with its newly founded Chapter 9 Bankruptcy plan that includes a significant loss of pension benefits for retired city employees.  However, the most devastating part of the Detroit financial crisis may not be the loss of pension benefits, it is the access to clean drinking water. Today, Detroit is a city in which nearly 50% of the residents will soon have no access to clean drinking water. Yes, that is correct, nearly half of the residents in Detroit, cannot obtain clean water and this has become a serious life crisis. Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) announced it would send shut-off notices to customers with balances more than $150 past due or who are more than 60 days behind in their water payments. The department, has stated that nearly 50% of Detroit's 324,000 water bills are overdue. Already, 4,500 accounts have had their water shut off by DWSD. This is a looming health crisis of epic proportions!

Obama's refusal to involve himself in helping the people of Detroit in such a stark contradiction of his constitutionally mandated priorities, is yet another example of Obama's Treason Quotient.

Both history and current events demonstrate that the more debt  a country acquires, the more at risk that country has with regard to losing control over its infrastructure and in particular, its water supplies to private interests. 

Beware of the UN Trojan Horse

In Detroit, it has not taken long for the unholy reach of CPS to involve themselves into the business of child-snatching when the water is shut off. CPS has immediately moved to take children from their parents for the crime of being poor. The U.N. Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Leilana Farha, has even expressed concern over the involvement of CPS. However, beware of the UN Trojan Horse, as the UN's solution to this crisis is a case of the cure being worse than the illness.

After reading this section of the report on the Detroit water crisis, it will be apparent why Obama has refused to bail out the people of Detroit, even as the people face an extreme crisis. It should also be pointed out DWSD is not threatening similar water shut-offs against its corporate clients such as Detroit Public Safety, the Palmer Golf Club, the Joe Louis Arena/Red Wings Hockey and Ford Field.

Clearly, Obama was waiting for the United Nations to interject themselves into Detroit and recently, this is exactly what has happened.

Not to worry, the United Nations has promised to intervene in the Detroit water crisis. The U.N. High Commission on Human Rights special rapporteur on safe water and sanitation, Catarina de Albuquerque, is in possession of a mandate which dictates that she must directly intervene with the U.S. government, first in a confidential manner and then in a public manner.

What do countries do when they are being strangled by debt? The answer is simple, the United Nations asserts its authority to intervene, in the name of human rights and then they bring in their corporate partners for fun and profit. On the UN's website they fully admit to resorting to facilitating corporate involvement when there is a water crisis.

As America's aging infrastructure falls further into disrepair, the various levels of government will be forced to borrow more money in order to keep its water supplies safe. This has been done before and the results were devastating to the country borrowing money.

Examples of UN NGO Involvement In Previous Water Crises

Bolivia, in 2000, is the poster child for what happens to a country when it lets the UN and its partner, the World Bank, has when it can convince governmental leaders to borrow money to fix its water issues. The Bolivian case in point is exemplified by the fact that the country borrowed money from the predatory World Bank in order to fix its water issues. The World Bank brought in Bechtel Corporation to fix Bolivia's water issues, however, Bolivia predictably defaulted on its World Bank loan obligations and their water supplies went into receivership as prices skyrocketed by 400%. Further the Bolivians lost the right to trap rainwater and reuse irrigation water.

The exact scheme is also underway in Lima, Peru, where the typical poor family pays private vendors up to $3 per cubic meter to collect contaminated water in buckets while the elite pay 30 cents per cubic meter for treated water that pours out of taps in their homes. Also, in India, some families spend a quarter of their income on water. Debt manipulation, for the ultimate purpose of controlling water, is not just in play in the third world. Very soon, America's crushing debt load combined with a quickly declining water infrastructure will lead officials in the US.

The derivative debt has paralyzed the economies of Europe and the United States. Debt default, followed by the banker bailouts will lead to private entities controlling our essential resources.

How long will it be until the globalists have to bail out the American economy while we continue on our trek towards unsustainable debt? When America's economy falters, the bankers, armed with their central bank printing presses, will come to the rescue. The price for their intervention, judging by what happened in Bolivia, will be a total control over our infrastructure. Collecting rainwater and purifying stream water to drink, have already become illegal acts. As the UN has recently called for, all water will eventually be obtained through the public-private partnership corporations and you can bet, as history has set a precedent, the price of water will get very expensive.

Draconian Water Policies Are Present In the US

States like Colorado, Utah and Washington have already made it illegal to trap rain water and use these resources for such purposes like drinking and irrigation.
Citation:


In Douglas County, Colorado, just south of metropolitan Denver, engineers conducted a study on how rainwater collection affects aquifer function and health as well as groundwater supplies. The study revealed that when private parties collect rainwater on their properties, this serves to reduce the demand on local water facilities and improves conservation efforts. Based upon this research, trapping rainwater should be encouraged. However, conservation is not the goal of modern day water management, political and personal control of the citizenry is the final objective.




The Bolivian water experience is already underway in the United States. Did we really think that this was only going to happen in Bolivia? Similar projects are underway in Manila, Pakistan and San Francisco. Yes, this is correct; Bechtel now has a contract with San Francisco's city government to upgrade the city's water system. Bechtel employees are working side by side with city workers in a privatization move that people-in-the-know fear will lead to an eventual take-over of San Francisco's water system and create a fiasco similar to the one in Bolivia.

The wolf is at the door as massive debt will soon cause the US to lose control over our water. This is all part of the Agenda 21 plot to control the water of the United States in order to subjugate the people and to make a lot of money in the process.

Conclusion

It is not just Detroit that is in trouble. St. Louis, Cleveland and Pittsburgh are just a few of the several aging communities that are in severe financial stress. Soon, these water practices are going to be visited on many American cities.

"A recent paper by US-based NGO Corporate Accountability International asks: "what is the ulterior motive, or at least the commonality of interests between these corporations in financing WHI's expansion? At least three strategic outcomes can be observed: (1) self-dealing (profiteering), (2) political and cultural commodification of water, and (3) advancement of a self-proclaimed 'new global architecture' for corporate control of water." This quote is not only accurate, it is prophetic. It has been announced that Nestle (the thieves robbing the Great Lakes), Coke and Veolia are participating in what is being called the 2030 Water Resources Group Phase 2. The groups announced strategy is to insert "private management" of all water resources on the planet.

How will the Agenda 21 sources get people into the "stack and pack" urban centers of the future?  Simple, they will use water to accomplish this goal. And will this serve a higher political goal? You already know the answer to that question.

NEW WATER BALANCE CALCULATION FOR THE DEAD SEA

by Tilo Arnhold
Tel Aviv, Israel (SPX) Jul 23, 2014

The drinking water resources on the eastern, Jordanian side of the Dead Sea could decline severe as a result of climate change than those on the western, Israeli and Palestinian side. This is the conclusion reached by an international team of researchers that calculated the water flows around the Dead Sea.

The natural replenishment rate of groundwater will reduce dramatically in the future if precipitation lowers as predicted, say the scientists, writing in the journal Science of the Total Environment.

Even now, the available groundwater resources in the region are not sufficient to meet the growing water requirements of the population and agriculture. If the situation worsens, it could therefore have serious social, economic and ecological consequences for the region. Important data for water providers

A reliable inventory of existing water resources around the Dead Sea, on the border between Israel, Palestine and Jordan, forms the basis for sustainable water management.

The lowest lake on earth is not only one of the biggest tourist attractions in the Middle East; more than four million people rely on the groundwater resources in its catchment basin. For a long time, the complex hydrology of this region presented major unknown factors in the local water balance equation. To some extent it still does.

Thanks to improved computer simulations, the researchers were able to work out - on an international scale for the first time - how much water actually infiltrates from rainfall and replenishes the groundwater reservoir: around 281 million cubic metres per year. This means that we now also know what the maximum withdrawal limit should be if this resource is to be managed sustainably.

A complicated puzzle with many pieces

Since the 1960s, the majority of the Dead Sea's tributaries have been dammed to capture the precious water before it disappears into the salt lake. However, this apparent salvaging of water is causing the water level of the Dead Sea to fall by around a metre per year and, with it, the surrounding groundwater levels.


Fresh water springs thousands of years old are ebbing away. This much was already known. What was not clear was exactly what impact the retreating water levels have on the quantities of usable groundwater.

Over the past five years, the team of researchers from Germany, Israel, Jordan and Palestine working on the SUMAR research project therefore used a combination of comprehensive on-site measurements, remote sensing and computer modelling systems to be able to provide a fairly complete answer to this question.

Tracing the course of the water

The springs in and around the Dead Sea were identified using infra-red sensors on aircraft and satellites, as well as chemical and isotopic methods. "By analysing rare earth elements in particular we were able to trace the origin of the water and the routes it takes underground," reports Dr Christian Siebert of the Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ).


"Not only were we able to locate 37 areas where groundwater flows into the Dead Sea, we now also know the history of each source. This was important for finding out how much fresh water flows into the Dead Sea underground and is therefore no longer available to use as drinking water. The last passage in particular, before the water from the mountains reaches the lake, took us a long time," says the hydrogeologist.

"Here, salt water rising from below mixes with the fresh water, and salt minerals are dissolved in it. But, together with colleagues from the Max Planck Institute in Bremen, we also managed to identify the biogeochemical processes that make permanent changes to the groundwater."

Computer models calculate the total water balance

In the end, all the available data were fed into computer models that revealed, more accurately than ever before, the situation in the drainage basin in the immediate vicinity of the Dead Sea - an area measuring roughly 7000 square kilometres.


The biggest challenges were the heterogeneous distribution of urban areas and the associated gaps in the data. Whereas the number of measuring stations in and around built-up areas like Jerusalem and Amman is very high, there are broad stretches of land that are very sparsely populated and therefore have only few wells and almost no geological or meteorological data.

Yet rain is particularly important in this context. The region is characterised by short, heavy downpours that often fall over a very small area. For this reason, the project team set up its own measurement stations so as to be able to measure the flash floods that result from these downpours. A comprehensive flow-measuring station was also set up on the River Jordan near one of the baptismal sites that attract thousands of Christian pilgrims every year.

Bleak forecasts

Using the models, the scientists were able, for the first time, to make predictions about possible future changes in the groundwater resources that are so vital for this region: the western (Israeli-Palestinian) side of the lake receives almost twice as much rainfall as the eastern (Jordanian) side. As a result, groundwater replenishment rates are currently around 50 per cent higher on the western side.


Climate scenarios predict a decrease in annual rainfall of around 20 per cent. However, the water that currently ends up underground and replenishes these important groundwater resources would be halved. The decrease on the western Israeli-Palestinian side is expected to be around 45 per cent, whereas the water available for the Jordanian (eastern) side would fall by nearly 55 per cent. The social and economic situation could therefore worsen, in Jordan in particular.

Recycling as a way out of the water crisis

Saving and reusing water could therefore be a solution, and the UFZ researchers are developing this concept further with colleagues from Israel, Palestine and Jordan. For instance, the SMART project researched ways of stabilising water supply in the Middle East.


The UFZ developed new concepts for decentralised wastewater treatment and made a significant contribution to the water master plan of Jordan, one of the world's most arid countries. Great importance was attached to adapting the wastewater treatment concept to local conditions, and to collaborating with local scientists and authorities. A special implementation office was set up in Jordan's Ministry of Water in Amman.

Ongoing research

Since completion of the SUMAR project, the research has been continued by the Helmholtz centres KIT (Karlsruhe), GFZ (Potsdam), UFZ (Halle) and local partners within the DESERVE (DEad SEa Research VEnue) project.


The aim of the meteorologists, hydrogeologists, geologists and geophysicists involved in the project is to look at environmental risks, water availability and climate change as a whole, so as to develop solutions for this unique region, not only so that people will be able to continue to visit the biblical sites, but also so that the people of this region can continue to live there. A stable water supply will therefore play an important role in bringing peace to the Middle East.

Whether the region will ever build the canal intended to carry water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea remains to be seen. Scientists like Christian Siebert are critical of the possible consequences of importing water in this way: "For instance, it is unclear whether the much lighter ocean water will mix with the Dead Sea water, which is ten times more saline, and we cannot be sure what biological and chemical processes will take place." The impacts on the surrounding groundwater are also disputed.

GROWING LIST OF NORCAL COMMUNITIES RUNNING OUT OF WATER IN JUST 60 DAYS

September 27, 2014 4:46 PM

OROVILLE (CBS SF) — California’s water shortage has reached a critical stage.

At least a dozen communities in Northern and Central California are at risk of running out of water in just 60 days.

The areas in jeopardy include Colusa and El Dorado County. These are relatively small communities and they rely on one source of water.




Critical areas that are running out of water in 60 days.

Butte County north of Sacramento is getting hit hard.

At Big Bend Mobile Home Park near Oroville, home to more than 30 families, the water supply is so low that between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., it is completely shut off.

“Hard when you have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night,” said resident Michelle Payne. “I guess we’re not flushing.”

The only water source for her entire community is a single well. There are other wells on the property, but they have all run dry.

“There’s really nothing can you about it,” said resident John Dougherty. “I don’t water any plants… try to cut back on toilet usage… whatever we can do is what you gotta do…all we can do.”

“Pretty much anything that was alive weeks ago is dry, ‘cuz we haven’t been able to water,” said Payne.

Some families have started driving five miles down the road to get drinking water from a spring box, for themselves and their animals.

Statewide the water shortages are getting worse. In just a month, the Water Resource Board’s list of communities at risk of running out of water in 60 days has grown from 8 to 12. Big Bend Mobile Home Park made that list.

There is some help on the way for the people here. The state just approved plans to drill a new well. It’s not clear when the work will begin.

COLORADO LOCKS DOWN WATER SUPPLY, PROMISING "NOT A DROP MORE" TO CALIFORNIA



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km1jbZyFW7E

Monday, December 29, 2014 by: C.L. Doherty

(NaturalNews) Recent storms dropped torrential rains across much of California, causing flooding and mudslides across many areas, leaving some residents homeless and killing at least two people. There was even a tornado in Los Angeles. Despite record rainfall on December 10 of between 1.54 inches at Long Beach Airport and 2.36 inches in Oxnard, the amount of rain that fell was a mere drop in the bucket for this drought-stricken state. A milder storm December 12 added to the rainfall total.

These early-winter storms left behind a combined 166 billion gallons of water, which seems like an enormous amount of water, but in reality is only enough water for 2.5 million people for one year. Given that California has been in a drought since 2011, and has a population of over 38 million, it is clear that California is far from done with its water woes. According to an article by the San Jose Mercury News, the California Department of Water Resources estimates that California will need six more major winter storms dropping similar amounts of rain to bring an end to the drought.

1922 Colorado River Compact still the base document for West's water management

James Eklund, director of the Colorado Water Conservation Board, isn't waiting to find out if those storms occur over the next few months and is working on policies to address the situation now and in the coming decades. About 4.6 trillion gallons of water run down off the Rocky Mountains as the snow melts in spring. Much of the water flows downstream to Arizona, Nevada, Mexico and California.

Two-thirds of the snowmelt-generated water belongs to these downstream regions, also known as the Lower Basin states, while one-third of the water belongs to the Upper Basin states, which include Utah and Wyoming, as well as Colorado, per the 1922 Colorado River Compact. James Eklund does not want to deprive the Lower Basin states of their apportionment; he just wants to ensure that any excess generated in Colorado stays in Colorado.

Looking to water consumption in the future

A number of factors affect decisions such as this. Colorado's population is expected to grow from the current 5.5 million to somewhere near 9 million by 2050. All other factors being the same, Colorado will experience a 60 percent increase in water usage over the next 35 years. Drought can hit anywhere, as happened in Colorado in 2002-2003, which led to development of a new water management plan. The plan doesn't currently address a long-contentious issue in the state that allows 163 billion gallons of water to be transported from west of the Continental Divide to the more heavily populated Front Range that includes cities like Denver and Colorado Springs in the east. The new plan does call for considering conservation and recycling alternatives before building any other pipelines. These are topics all states should be considering.

In California, agriculture accounts for 80 percent of all water used in a given year while accounting for less than 2.5 percent of California's income. Water-intensive crops, such as alfalfa and rice, take up a significant amount of the agricultural use, with alfalfa farmers using fully 20 percent of the water to grow a crop used primarily to feed dairy cows in the state. Alfalfa crops account for only 4 percent of state farming revenue.

California plan only addresses 20 percent of water consumption

Based on these facts, you might think Governor Brown's 2014 California Water Action plan would place a premium on developing water conservation legislation and practices that would concentrate on agricultural water consumption and best practices. Sadly, it does not. Instead, it concentrates primarily on urban water consumption and extends Senate Bill X7-7, a law passed in 2009 which contains the goal of reducing per capita urban water use by 20 percent by December 31, 2020, and suggests holding water consumption at 2000 levels until 2030. Almost as an afterthought, the plan states that "the administration will also work with local and regional entities to develop performance measures to evaluate agricultural water management." No performance measures for agricultural water consumption are given.

The California Water Action Plan leaves little doubt as to why James Eklund and the Colorado Water Conservation Board have adopted such an aggressive posture in the West's war for water. Poor planning on California's part isn't going to constitute an emergency for Coloradans.

WORLD WATER DAY : CHURCHES REFLECT ON THE SIGNIFIANCE OF WATER

At the time the international community is taking over our water rights, the gnostic gospel of the fallen angels wants us to embrase the illusion that we are one with the mother earth... water. World Water Day on 22 March, a UN feast of the devil, “Towards Water Justice: A Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace” "a scarce resource threatened and denied to millions around the world" --- deception and lies. These are the ones who're guilty to this global poverty and the take over of all ressource on this earth.

As you can see, the COE is part of this evil endoctrination either to denounce what's really going on in the loose of all our freedom. If you don't see what's going on, demons and all these evil possess communists will take control over not only your body but on your spirit and your soul.

19 March 2015

Ahead of World Water Day on 22 March, a number of Christian organizations are reflecting on the significance of water – a scarce resource threatened and denied to millions around the world.

Their reflections are inspired by the World Council of Churches (WCC) Lenten campaign, Seven Weeks for Water. The campaign, coordinated by the WCC’s Ecumenical Water Network (EWN), invites dialogue on water issues while focusing on the theme “Towards Water Justice: A Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace”. Each week, the website of the campaign publishes theological reflections on water.

“A correct biblical and theological stance towards water is required because it is the foundation of our home, the earth. And that home is not just a human habitat; it is a home that we share with all other creatures,” states Rev. Kuzipa Nalwamba from the United Church of Zambia, one of the contributors of Seven Weeks for Water campaign materials.

“For our good and the good of other creatures of the earth, we are called upon to care for its resources, especially water which is the life in all living things,” adds Nalwamba.

In another reflection authored by Advocate Rajendra Sail, a founding member of the Raipur Churches Development and Relief Committee, says, “From the people’s point of view, water is a birth-right.”

“It cannot be given or taken away by anyone, as it comes with being born, and is part of one’s being. Thus, it becomes one’s duty and responsibility to protect it, preserve it, share it, use it as per the basic-minimal needs, and to say NO to private control,” states Sail.

Among other contributors to Seven Weeks for Water are Dr Rommel Linatoc, Prof. Elias Wolff, Veronica Flachier, Prof. Chung Hyun Kyung and Prof. Susan L. Smith.

“This World Water Day, we are reminded of the efforts and projects carried out by our churches to ensure that our local communities have access to clean water,” said Olusesan Olukoya, executive director of the Centre for Rural Development and Community Transformation in association with the Preach Water Foundation, an NGO arm of the Presbyterian Church in Nigeria.

“Theological resources from the Seven Weeks for Water have encouraged us to continue our small initiatives that lie within our capacity to provide water to deprived communities,” added Olukoya.
Reflections on water issues
“This year’s Seven Weeks for Water reflections critique commodification and privatization of water and water bodies. Inspired by these materials, we wish to observe World Water Day in our church and different parishes affirming water as a gift from God,” said Angelious Michael of the Jeypore Evangelical Lutheran Church in India.

“We will denounce commodification of water and will strive for water justice,” he added.

“We strongly believe that water is a gift from the God of life,” said Adebayo Anthony Kehinde from The Church of The Lord (Aladura) Worldwide, Nigeria.

“The Seven Weeks for Water have proved to be a practical expression of global ecumenical accompaniment with churches in their struggle for water justice,” he said. “Our church has shared these resources with the ecumenical family here in Nigeria,” Kehinde added.

Kasta Dip, director of the India Peace Centre of the National Council of Churches in India, shared that the Seven Weeks for Water campaign was being connected to the significance of water as described in religious scriptures. These reflections, he said, emphasize how water has no substitute and how it is a religious obligation and social responsibility to save water and use it conscientiously.

Dinesh Suna, the EWN coordinator, said, “The Seven Weeks for Water is an effective instrument to generate interest among the WCC member churches towards World Water Day, which invariably falls during the Lenten period according to most Christian traditions.”

“This year’s theme for World Water Day, ‘water and sustainable development’, reinforces the importance of water as an integral part of the sustainable development process, affecting food, health, energy, education, gender and many more issues,” he said.

“This World Water Day also gives a boost to retain the specific goal (6) related to water and sanitation in the proposed Sustainable Development Goals, due to be launched in September 2015 at the United Nations General Assembly,” Suna added.

CNRSW ADDRESSES SOUTHWEST WATER, ENERGY CHALLENGES DURING INSTALLATION FORUM

Story Number: NNS150320-08Release Date: 3/20/2015 9:32:00 AM  

By Melinda Larson, Naval Support Activity Monterey Public Affairs

MONTEREY, Calif. (NNS) -- Rear Adm. Patrick Lorge, commander, Navy Region Southwest, shared his region's energy efficiency and water sustainability challenges during the Association of Defense Communities's (ADC) Installation Innovation Forum 2015 in Monterey California, March 16.

Installation Innovation Forum 2015, a national installation-focused professional development event, explored cutting-edge developments that are reshaping how installations are managed and the way communities and installations work together.

"I need secure water supplies to ensure my mission sets are protected," Lorge said during the Forum's "Water Resource Security at Installations" presentation. "We must continue to reduce water and energy consumption."

One of the most pressing environmental issues for Lorge, and other defense communities in the western United States, is securing a reliable source of drinking water that can meet the needs of installations and their host communities. A supervisor from a county where the Navy's largest installation is located echoed Lorge's need for a sustainable water supply.

"How do we ensure adequate water for supply for everyone, especially Naval Air Weapons Station (NAWS) China Lake? The county is preparing ways to rezone and rebound. Water vulnerability is another type of encroachment," said Mick Gleason, Kern County Supervisor.

Encompassing 1.1 million acres, NAWS China Lake fills a critical role in the nation's defense, and Kern County's economy.

"China Lake is of strategic importance to this country. It is a one-of-a-kind place with capabilities that cannot be duplicated elsewhere. We're working together with Kern County and its advocates to protect this jewel in the desert. There is strength when we partner with our host communities," Lorge added.

Another panel member noted renewable energy and water conservation challenges are being addressed by the entire Department of Defense.

"We're working to identify water rights and availability. Most water needs are based on past usage. We must quantify how much water we need to execute our missions while continuing to be a sustainable member in our communities. Navy Region Southwest has a great reputation for bringing down its water use," said Rebecca Patton, Project Management Professional, Climate Change Adaptation Integration, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Energy, Installations and Environment.

As energy costs continue to eat away at installation budgets, the importance of sustainable water supplies and renewable energy for the armed services will increase, along with a culture of conservation and community partnerships.

JOURNEE DE L'EAU : "QUE PERSONNE NE SOIT PRIVE DE CE BIEN"

Appel du pape à la communauté internationale

Rome, 22 mars 2015 (Zenit.org) Anne Kurian 

Le pape François appelle la communauté internationale à protéger le « bien commun » qu’est l’eau : « que personne ne soit privé de l’usage de ce bien », souhaite-t-il ce 22 mars 2015, Journée mondiale de l’eau.

Au terme de l’angélus de ce dimanche, place Saint-Pierre, le pape a en effet évoqué cet événement : « Chers frères et sœurs, c’est aujourd’hui la Journée mondiale de l’eau, promue par les Nations-Unies. »

« L’eau est l’élément le plus essentiel pour la vie, et de notre capacité à le protéger et à le partager dépend l’avenir de l’humanité », a-t-il souligné en encourageant « la Communauté internationale à veiller afin que les eaux de la planète soient bien protégées et que personne ne soit privé ou discriminé dans l’usage de ce bien, qui est un bien commun par excellence ».

Le pape a aussi cité saint François d’Assise qui parle de « sœur l’eau » dans son Cantique de frère Soleil : « Loué sois-tu, mon Seigneur, pour sœur l’eau / qui est très utile et humble et précieuse et chaste » (« Laudato si’, mi’ Signore, per sora aqua, / la quale è molto utile et humile et pretiosa et casta» -).

CARLY FIORINA : ENVIRONMENTALISTS TO BLAME FOR 'MAN-MADE' DROUGHT IN CALIFORNIA

Posted: 04/06/2015 9:50 pm EDT Updated: 04/07/2015 2:00 pm EDT



WASHINGTON -- Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina on Monday blamed environmentalists for what she called a "man-made" drought in California, which has led to the state's first water restrictions. = Part of Agenda 21


-----

AGENDA 21: THE EPA WANTS TO MONITOR YOUR SHOWER IN A HOTEL.



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rgx-NsUJq0 

-----

“With different policies over the last 20 years, all of this could be avoided,” Fiorina, a likely 2016 Republican presidential contender, said in an interview with radio host Glenn Beck. “Despite the fact that California has suffered from droughts for millennia, liberal environmentalists have prevented the building of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades during a period in which California’s population has doubled.”

Fiorina, California's 2010 GOP nominee for U.S. Senate, said it was a "classic case of liberals being willing to sacrifice other people’s lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology. It is a tragedy.”

The drought, now officially in its fourth year, prompted Gov. Jerry Brown (D) last week to order a 25 percent reduction in water consumption. The order does not apply to the agriculture industry, which consumes nearly 80 percent of the state's water.

Lawmakers in Congress and in the state legislature have proposed bills authorizing construction of new dams and reservoirs, citing the need to capture water that ends up in the ocean. They have been opposed by environmental groups, which argue the projects would endanger the state's habitat and endangered species. Last year, House Republicans proposed pumping additional water to Southern California, but the bill failed under a veto threat from President Barack Obama.

There is significant debate about whether the state has enough water left, at this point, to justify the cost of building new dams and reservoirs. According to The Sacramento Bee, some new reservoirs, wouldn't supply significant new water.

"There's nothing magical in and of themselves to build a (reservoir) facility," Lester Snow, the executive director of the California Water Foundation, told the Bee last year. "If we had two more surface storage facilities that we built 10 years ago -- pick any of the two that people are talking about -- they would both be very low right now. There's a tendency to pull down our surface storage when we get mildly short of water."

NextGen Climate, the climate-focused political group run by billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer, on Monday evening called Fiorina's comments "irrational."

"For a science denier to opine that Democrats caused the drought in California is about as irrational as believing someone who failed at running a business in California and then failed as a candidate for office in California has any cause to be running for the highest office in the land," Bobby Whithorne, the group's spokesman, said in a statement.

The Sierra Club, a national environmental group, disputed Fiorina's assertion that more dams and reservoirs would have lessened the impact of the drought.

"For more than 100 years, environmentalists have failed to stop the damming of nearly every significant river in California. And yet all of the hundreds of dams out there have done nothing to produce rain or snow pack over the last four years. That's because you can't store what's not there," said Kathryn Phillips, director of Sierra Club's California chapter. "We simply don't have rain or snow pack and are suffering the worst California drought since water agencies and weather trackers started keeping records."

"What we are seeing is exactly what climate scientists have predicted would happen in California with the onset of human-caused climate disruption: Weather and precipitation would become less predictable and droughts would become more frequent and more severe," Phillips added.

This post has been updated with comment from Sierra Club California.

CALIFORNIA DUMPS A TRILLION GALLON OF FRESH WATER IN OCEAN - DECLARES WATER SHORTAGE 

Scott OsbornApril 14, 2015

California is dumping a trillion gallons of fresh Water in the ocean. Only liberals would declare a water shortage disaster after spending years dumping good, fresh water into the ocean to protect a non-endangered bait fish.



California is dumping trillions of gallons of fresh water into the ocean, creating a man-made disaster, to protect an non-endangered bait fish.

For years now, the southern 1/3 of the beautiful San Joaquin Valley’s farmland has been turned into a “man-made” dust bowl.

The water is being allowed to just run off the mountains, through the river system, through the delta, and out into the ocean. The water is being reserved for the little Delta Smelt, a three inch bait fish, that is not endangered species list.

Now, California is in the midst of a drought. As the Governor institutes water emergency rules, they just let all that water just keep pouring into the ocean. Unbelievable!

The I-5 San Joaquin Valley corridor is marked with signs begging Nancy Pelosi to turn the water on. Sean Hannity hosted a full show from Hanford, CA to highlight the problem. Phone calls and letters from all over the country have been sent to try to fix this situation.

Comedian Paul Rodriguez, co-chair of Latino Water Coalition, crosses the state working to remove the environmental protection on the Delta smelt.

Representative Devin Nunes, (CA) describes the situation in the WSJ back in 2009.



Signs begging Sacramento and DC to turn the water back on are scattered all over the lower San Joaquin Valley.

Today the San Joaquin Valley is being transformed into a dust bowl. Hundreds of thousands of acres are fallow, while almond and plum trees are being left to die in the scorching sun.

Tens of thousands of people have been tossed out of work—the town of Mendota alone has an unemployment rate of about 40%—and the lines for food donations stretch down streets. The reason? There isn’t enough water to go around this year, and the Obama administration is drawing up new reasons to divert more of it from farms and people and into the San Francisco Bay.

Devon Nunes also stated in an interview along side Paul Rodriguez, “There’s a half a million acres of farmland, it’s bigger than the size of Rhode Island, that’s now dry because of these fools!”

David Spady reports that,  “California’s man-made water crisis led to $2.2 billion in losses, water rationing, rising food costs, and the destruction of small family businesses.”


70 percent of California’s rainfall “washes out to sea” every year..for a minnow.

The destruction is horrific. Businesses lost, property values lost, jobs lost, crop production lost, food cost increases,  just to begin.

Presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina recently weighed in on the subject. She said that as a result, 70 percent of California’s rainfall “washes out to sea” every year…California is a classic case of liberals being willing to sacrifice other people’s lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology. It is a tragedy,”

The Climate Change, Save the Whale, Hug the Tree, Save the Baitfish crowd consistently uses a false narrative to to accomplish their political agenda. Now scientists are predicting a 35 year mega-drought in the West. When does the madness stop?

Environmental and endangered species laws are being used to force a political agenda, and in the process, doing severe damage to our country.

Filmmaker David Spady is working on a movie to highlight the travesty. No Water. No Farmer. No Food. reveals the extent to which both rural and urban populations rely on the nation’s agricultural industry.

This is a must watch trailer. David does a great job of framing the problem.

WAL-MART BOTTLED WATER COMES FROM SACRAMENTO MUNICIPAL SUPPLY

May 8, 2015 10:36 PM

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Wal-Mart is facing questions tonight after CBS13 learns the company draws its bottled water from a Sacramento water district during California’s drought.

According to the label, the water comes from the Sacramento Municipal Water Supply. This comes on the heels of Starbucks opting to move sourcing and production of its Ethos bottled water from California to Pennsylvania.

While the label reads Great Value, the fine print reveals the bottled water is anything but a deal, especially for Sacramento residents.

“Either they were unaware, uninformed or unintentionally did this,” said public relations expert Doug Elmets. “It could be all three of those. Whatever it is, it’s a bad move and they need to correct it and they need to do it quickly.”

RELATED: Visit California Drought Desk for complete drought coverage

According to its own labeling, the water in the gallon jugs appears to come from Sacramento’s water supply.

Sacramento sells water to a bottler, DS Services of America, at 99 cents for every 748 gallons—the same rate as other commercial and residential customers. That water is then bottled and sold at Walmart for 88 cents per gallon, meaning that $1 of water from Sacramento turns into $658.24 for Walmart and DS Services.

For comparison, the city of Sacramento says the average family uses 417 gallons of water a day.

Elmets wonders if this perfectly legal business operation will get a big thumbs-down from California consumers. This comes as Sacramento-area water districts are preparing to enforce residential water-use cuts as high as 36 percent.

“It’s certainly leaving a bad taste in everyone’s mouth when you can’t fill up a swimming pool, if you’re building a new home in West Sacramento; you can’t water your lawn if you’re living in this region. And to find out they’re making a huge profit off of this, it’s just not right,” Elmets said.

RELATED: Simple Water-Saving Tips

He says Wal-Mart should take a page out of Starbucks’ game plan. The coffee giant moved production of Ethos bottled water after news its water was pumped out of Placer County and bottled in Merced.

“The reaction should be immediate. And that is to find another supplier outside of California that can be able to meet the needs that they have and also the needs of the consumer,” he said.

Wal-Mart sent a statement reading in part, “We have and continue to work with our suppliers to act responsibly while meeting the needs of customers who count on us across California.”

CBS13 contacted the Sacramento water district on Friday, but were told its media specialist will get back to us next week.

MAN GETS PRISON SENTENCE FOR COLLECTING RAINWATER ON HIS OWN PROPERTY

Delightful Knowledge
on May 12, 2015 at 12:49 am

Collecting rainwater on your own property can now lead to jail time, as proven by a man from Oregon who was just sentenced to prison for doing just that. Who owns the rain? The US government, apparently, now. Not so long ago, it was common practice across much of the world to collect rainwater into man made wells on your property as a means of farming, irrigation, and having fresh clean water. It was just as common as canning your own food, having knowledge of at least some basic survival skills, and being self-sufficient.

It wasn’t even that many generations ago that all of this was common practice – people born before WWII were pretty adept at these skills, as they were a necessity to survival. One of the main (and easiest) ways to ensure survival? Collecting rainwater on your own property. The practical uses for storing and collecting rainwater are numerous and many people across the world in rural areas still do it today for all of the reasons listed above. However, over the past few years, laws making the collection of rainwater illegal have been causing an uproar across the US.

Now, a man from Grey Point, Oregon has been sentenced to thirty days in prison for storing collected rainwater on his very own property – and the public is outraged.

According to CNS News (source):

A rural Oregon man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater.



Gary Harrington of Eagle Point, Ore., says he plans to appeal his conviction in Jackson County (Ore.) Circuit Court on nine misdemeanor charges under a 1925 law for having what state water managers called “three illegal reservoirs” on his property – and for filling the reservoirs with rainwater and snow runoff.

“The government is bullying,” Harrington told CNSNews.com in an interview Thursday.

“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and die and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies. So, we as Americans, we need to stand on our constitutional rights, on our rights as citizens and hang tough. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.

The court has given Harrington two weeks to report to the Jackson County Jail to begin serving his sentence.



Harrington said the case first began in 2002, when state water managers told him there were complaints about the three “reservoirs” – ponds – on his more than 170 acres of land.

According to Oregon water laws, all water is publicly owned. Therefore, anyone who wants to store any type of water on their property must first obtain a permit from state water managers.

Harrington said he applied for three permits to legally house reservoirs for storm and snow water runoff on his property. One of the “reservoirs” had been on his property for 37 years, he said.

Though the state Water Resources Department initially approved his permits in 2003, the state – and a state court — ultimately reversed the decision.

“They issued me my permits. I had my permits in hand and they retracted them just arbitrarily, basically. They took them back and said ‘No, you can’t have them,’ so I’ve been fighting it ever since,” Harrington told CNSNews.com.

The case, he said, is centered on a 1925 law which states that the city of Medford holds exclusive rights to “all core sources of water” in the Big Butte Creek watershed and its tributaries.

“Way back in 1925 the city of Medford got a unique withdrawal that withdrew all — supposedly all — the water out of a single basin and supposedly for the benefit of the city of Medford,” Harrington told CNSNews.com.

Harrington told CNSNews.com, however, that the 1925 law doesn’t mention anything about colleting rainwater or snow melt — and he believes that he has been falsely accused.

“The withdrawal said the stream and its tributaries. It didn’t mention anything about rainwater and it didn’t mention anything about snow melt and it didn’t mention anything about diffused water, but yet now, they’re trying to expand that to include that rain water and they’re using me as the goat to do it,” Harrington



But Tom Paul, administrator of the Oregon Water Resources Department, claims that Harrington has been violating the state’s water use law by diverting water from streams running into the Big Butte River.

“The law that he is actually violating is not the 1925 provision, but it’s Oregon law that says all of the water in the state of Oregon is public water and if you want to use that water, either to divert it or to store it, you have to acquire a water right from the state of Oregon before doing that activity,” Paul told CNSNews.com.

Yet Paul admitted the 1925 law does apply because, he said, Harrington constructed dams to block a tributary to the Big Butte, which Medford uses for its water supply.



“There are dams across channels, water channels where the water would normally flow if it were not for the dam and so those dams are stopping the water from flowing in the channel and storing it- holding it so it cannot flow downstream,” Paul told CNSNews.com.

Harrington, however, argued in court that that he is not diverting water from Big Butte Creek, but the dams capturing the rainwater and snow runoff – or “diffused water” – are on his own property and that therefore the runoff does not fall under the jurisdiction of the state water managers, nor does it not violate the 1925 act.

In 2007, a Jackson County Circuit Court judge denied Harrington’s permits and found that he had illegally “withdrawn the water at issue from appropriation other than for the City of Medford.”

According to Paul, Harrington entered a guilty plea at the time, received three years probation and was ordered to open up the water gates.

“A very short period of time following the expiration of his probation, he once again closed the gates and re-filled the reservoirs,” Paul told CNSNews.com. “So, this has been going on for some time and I think frankly the court felt that Mr. Harrington was not getting the message and decided that they’d already given him probation once and required him to open the gates and he refilled his reservoirs and it was business as usual for him, so I think the court wanted — it felt it needed — to give a stiffer penalty to get Mr. Harrington’s attention.”

In two weeks, if unsuccessful in his appeals, Harrington told CNSNews.com that he will report to the Jackson County Jail to serve his sentence.

“I follow the rules. If I’m mandated to report, I’m going to report. Of course, I’m going to do what it takes in the meantime to prevent that, but if I’m not successful, I’ll be there,” Harrington said.

But Harrington also said that he will never stop fighting the government on this issue.

“When something is wrong, you just, as an American citizen, you have to put your foot down and say, ‘This is wrong; you just can’t take away anymore of my rights and from here on in, I’m going to fight it.”

What are your thoughts on collecting rainwater – especially when it is on your own property? Who do you think should “own” the rain?

OBAMA GRABS POWER OVER U.S WATERWAYS 

EPA barges ahead with controversial rule

Published: 1 day ago


Cheryl Chumley http://www.wnd.com/author/cchumley/?archive=true
http://www.wnd.com/author/cchumley/?archive=true
Cheryl K. Chumley is a staff writer for WND and author of "Police State USA: How Orwell's Nightmare is Becoming our Reality." Formerly with the Washington Times, she is a journalism fellow with The Phillips Foundation in Washington, D.C., where she spent a year researching and writing about private property rights.


The EPA issued new water rules.

The Obama administration is barging ahead with a new rule that gives the feds more power to oversee America’s waterways, announcing Wednesday the Environmental Protection Agency does not need to wait on congressional authority to issue the regulations.

“We’re finalizing a clean water rule to protect the streams and the wetlands that one in three Americans rely on for drinking water,” EPA head Gina McCarthy said to reporters. “And we’re doing that without creating any new permitting requirements and maintaining all previous exemptions and exclusions.”

Critics maintain the rule will put the federal government as overseer of ditches, puddles and other similarly small areas of wet ground, as WND previously reported.

Read about Washington’s operating standard these days, in “Gangster Government: Barack Obama and the New Washington Thugocracy,” by David Freddoso.

But McCarthy and White House officials say the rule will only clarify environmental protections that are already in place under the Clean Water Act.

This rule is about clarification and in fact, we’re adding exclusions for features like artificial lakes and ponds, water-filled depressions from constructions and grass swales,” McCarthy said, the Hill reported. “This rule is based on science.”

Obama’s action comes in the face of repeated resistance from congressional Republicans who say the clamp-down is too restrictive and will prove too costly.

He said in a statement: “Too many of our waters have been left vulnerable to pollution. [Federal agencies will] restore protection for the streams and wetlands that form the foundation of our nation’s water resources, without getting in the way of farming, ranching or forestry.”

OBAMA'S FORTHCOMING EXECUTIVE ACTION COULD IMPACT YOUR PROPERTY 

May. 26, 2015 11:38pm Fred Lucas


The Obama administration is expected to announce final details of “Waters of the United States” rule this week that could impact any property owner with water or a ditch that occasionally fills with water on their land. Moreover, the regulation could even conflict with two Supreme Court rulings.

The Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers have sought to provide more clarity to what bodies of water are protected under the 1972 Clean Water Act, which has previously affected rivers, lakes and the streams that flow directly to them.

Private property advocates, such as ranchers and farmers, fear the new rule could encompass nearly any type of water on a property.

“Property owners will not be able to engage in activities they should be able to engage in,” Daren Bakst, a research fellow in agriculture policy at the conservative Heritage Foundation, told TheBlaze. “This will be devastating to private property rights. It’s an attack on private property rights. Most people don’t have the money to pay for all these permits.”


Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy (AP Photo/ Evan Vucci) 

The EPA referred TheBlaze to a blog written by EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy.
“Protection for about 60 percent of the nation’s streams and millions of acres of wetlands has been confusing and complex as the result of Supreme Court decisions in 2001 and 2006,” they wrote.

The post continued, “We’re limiting protection to ditches that function like tributaries and can carry pollution downstream—like those constructed out of streams. Our proposal talked about upland ditches, and we got feedback that the word “upland” was confusing, so we’ll approach ditches from another angle.”

Twice in less than a decade the Supreme Court, first in the 2001 case of Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; and again in the 2006 case of Rapanos v. United States, struck down efforts by the two agencies to expand jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act.

The two agencies say the rule will accommodate the high court rulings, while critics say it clearly expands beyond the court’s limits on the government.
“It’s not uncommon for an agency to broadly interpret language, but based on court precedent, it is going way too far in exceeding what it is allowed to do,” Bakst said.

The proposed rule would regulate “tributaries,” or depressions in land that can fill up with water. Currently such water cannot be regulated, but the EPA contends that such bodies of water – even if temporary – can run off and send pollution into larger bodies of water.

The American Farm Bureau Foundation established a special website called “Ditch the Rule,” using the term “ditch” for claiming the EPA wants to regulate a ditch under the Clean Water Act.

The EPA conducted an aggressive social media and public relations campaign, which critics have said skewed public support.

California is dumping a trillion gallons of fresh Water in the ocean. Only liberals would declare a water shortage disaster after spending years dumping good, fresh water into the ocean to protect a non-endangered bait fish.

For years now, the southern 1/3 of the beautiful San Joaquin Valley’s farmland has been turned into a “man-made” dust bowl.

The water is being allowed to just run off the mountains, through the river system, through the delta, and out into the ocean. The water is being reserved for the little Delta Smelt, a three inch bait fish, that is not endangered species list.

Now, California is in the midst of a drought. As the Governor institutes water emergency rules, they just let all that water just keep pouring into the ocean. Unbelievable!

The I-5 San Joaquin Valley corridor is marked with signs begging Nancy Pelosi to turn the water on. Sean Hannity hosted a full show from Hanford, CA to highlight the problem. Phone calls and letters from all over the country have been sent to try to fix this situation.

Comedian Paul Rodriguez, co-chair of Latino Water Coalition, crosses the state working to remove the environmental protection on the Delta smelt.

Representative Devin Nunes, (CA) describes the situation in the WSJ back in 2009.



Signs begging Sacramento and DC to turn the water back on are scattered all over the lower San Joaquin Valley.

Today the San Joaquin Valley is being transformed into a dust bowl. Hundreds of thousands of acres are fallow, while almond and plum trees are being left to die in the scorching sun.

Tens of thousands of people have been tossed out of work—the town of Mendota alone has an unemployment rate of about 40%—and the lines for food donations stretch down streets. The reason? There isn’t enough water to go around this year, and the Obama administration is drawing up new reasons to divert more of it from farms and people and into the San Francisco Bay.

Devon Nunes also stated in an interview along side Paul Rodriguez, “There’s a half a million acres of farmland, it’s bigger than the size of Rhode Island, that’s now dry because of these fools!”

David Spady reports that,  “California’s man-made water crisis led to $2.2 billion in losses, water rationing, rising food costs, and the destruction of small family businesses.”



70 percent of California’s rainfall “washes out to sea” every year..for a minnow.

The destruction is horrific. Businesses lost, property values lost, jobs lost, crop production lost, food cost increases,  just to begin.

Presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina recently weighed in on the subject. She said that as a result, 70 percent of California’s rainfall “washes out to sea” every year…California is a classic case of liberals being willing to sacrifice other people’s lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology. It is a tragedy,”

The Climate Change, Save the Whale, Hug the Tree, Save the Baitfish crowd consistently uses a false narrative to to accomplish their political agenda. Now scientists are predicting a 35 year mega-drought in the West. When does the madness stop?

Environmental and endangered species laws are being used to force a political agenda, and in the process, doing severe damage to our country.

Filmmaker David Spady is working on a movie to highlight the travesty. No Water. No Farmer. No Food. reveals the extent to which both rural and urban populations rely on the nation’s agricultural industry.
This is a must watch trailer. David does a great job of framing the problem.

NASA: THE EARTH IS RUNNING OUT OF WATER

The Earth is running out of water because of the corruption of the global government who makes a lot of money with this blue gold and who also use this reason to destroy many countries. Not sure that the Vatican and all the houses and the bunkers of our elites has this problem!

More than half of the world's 37 largest aquifers are losing water due to population and climate stresses

Bottom line: the Earth is running out of water.

Two new NASA studies led by researchers from the University of California Irvine and published Tuesday show that the depletion of global groundwater resources, due to the dueling impacts of global warming and growing human demand, has caused the world's water supply to drop to dangerous levels.

The first report compares statistical analysis of water withdrawal to GRACE satellite analysis, which measures variations in gravity on the Earth's surface, between January 2003 and December 2013. The study compares the difference between the use and availability of these resources to determine the amount of overall renewable groundwater stress, or RGS.

According to the findings, at 21 of the 37 largest aquifers, water is being drained at a greater rate than it is being naturally replenished, 13 of which fell into the most troubled category.

In the United States, the Central Valley aquifer in California—a region known as much for its heavy agriculture as for its ongoing record drought—falls into this group.

"The water table is dropping all over the world," said Jay Famiglietti, senior water scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who took part in the research. "There’s not an infinite supply of water."

The second study examines total groundwater storage capacity and found that many estimates are outdated and may even be smaller than previously thought.

Whereas previous definitions of water stress do not account for groundwater as a water supply source, the researchers explain that groundwater is now "increasingly relied upon during times of drought as a resilient water supply source." Further, they state, "Groundwater is currently the primary source of freshwater for approximately two billion people."

The researchers warn that as water resources are strapped to meet future demands "due to population growth and climate change"—both of which, they note, may alter the distribution of available freshwater— "the global population without access to potable water will likely increase."

"We need to get our heads together on how we manage groundwater," Famiglietti added, "because we’re running out of it."

NESTLE IS ABOUT TO SUCK BC DRY -- FOR $2.25 PER MILLION LITRES TO BE EXACT 




As wildfires rage all over drought-stricken BC, the provincial government is still letting companies like Nestlé take water for $2.25 per million litres.
It is outrageous that Nestlé can draw limitless amounts of Canada's natural resources to sell for a huge profit while British Columbians are asked to not water our lawns and take shorter showers.

Four months after we launched the petition to ask BC to charge a fair price on our groundwater, this is nearly our biggest petition ever in Canada . And we are making waves with dozens of press mentions including the front page of The Province, one of BC's biggest newspapers, and TV interviews with Global News. And thanks to these press hits, political parties are debating the policy. Soon we'll be delivering the petition directly to the BC government, so add your name now and help us get over the top.

Tell the BC government to charge a fair price for our most precious resource.

Nestlé's chairman says that "extremist" NGOs are responsible for the idea that water is a human right, and that water should have a market price -- apparently he thinks that the “market price" for him is $2.25.

The cruel irony is that the new water legislation is fairly appropriate when it comes to individuals' water use -- but corporations, once again, get off with paying virtually nothing. If you or I were to bottle enough groundwater to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool, we'd pay $180. Nestlé will pay $6.25. That's bananas.

BC has some of the purest, cleanest and most delicious water in the world -- and Nestlé doesn't think anything of sucking it out of the ground for a pittance and selling it back to us in a plastic bottle. Nor does the BC government, apparently. This new pricing structure, which was supposed to fix the problem of freeloading corporations, is even more outrageous at a time when many parts of the world are facing extreme water shortages.

We need your voice to stop this. SumOfUs members across the globe have mobilized in the hundreds of thousands to call for Nestle to stop exploiting water rights. From Pakistan to California to Oregon to right here in Canada, we are going to make sure Nestle can't walk away with our water without paying a fair price.

Call on the BC government to stop allowing Nestlé and other corporate freeloaders from extracting our water for next to nothing.

CA GOV. JERRY BROWN PLANS TO TAKE FARMS BY EMINENT DOMAIN FOR WATER TUNNELS

By Associated Press
August 18, 2015 11:55 am





State contractors have readied plans to acquire as many as 300 farms in the California delta by eminent domain to make room for a pair of massive, still-unapproved water tunnels proposed by Gov. Jerry Brown, according to documents obtained by opponents of the tunnels.

Farmers whose parcels were listed and mapped in the 160-page property-acquisition plan expressed dismay at the advanced planning for the project, which would build 30-mile-long tunnels in the delta formed by the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers.

"What really shocks is we're fighting this and we're hoping to win," said Richard Elliot, who grows cherries, pears and other crops on delta land farmed by his family since the 1860s. "To find out they're sitting in a room figuring out this eminent domain makes it sound like they're going to bully us ... and take what they want."

Officials involved in the project defended planning so far ahead regarding the tunnels.

"Planning for right-of-way needs, that is the key part of your normal planning process," said Roger Patterson, assistant general manager for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, one of the water agencies that would benefit from the twin tunnels.


The district serves 17 million people in Southern California as well as large farms and businesses.

Brown's administration said re-engineering water flows of the delta - the largest estuary on the West Coast - is essential to undoing mistakes of past water projects and to supplying water to Southern California.

Brown has pushed for a massive delta makeover since his first stint as governor in the 1970s and 1980s. In May, he told critics of the tunnels to "shut up."

Opponents say the tunnels would jeopardize delta farming and destroy vital wildlife habitat.

"If these reports are correct, then we have further confirmation that the tunnels project has been a forgone conclusion," state Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, who chairs a committee on the delta, said in an email Monday.

The environmental review, "which should be used to choose a project, is simply being used to justify the favored project," she wrote.

Through October, the project officially is in a period of public comment on the environmental impact of the tunnels. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which opposed an earlier version of the project, also must still weigh in.

Restore the Delta, a group of farmers, fishing associations, environmental groups and other opponents, released the property plan that was obtained with a request made under the state open records law. The plan targets public and private land in Sacramento, San Joaquin, Contra Costa and Alameda counties to be acquired for the project.

Under the plan, landowners would have 30 days to consider and negotiate a one-time state offer, while officials simultaneously prepare to take the land by forced sale if owners declined to sell. "Negotiations to continue in parallel with eminent domain proceedings," the plan notes.

Contractors also appear to call for minimal public input.

"All transactions are conducted, reviewed and approved internally by DCE staff and managers to maintain control and avoid unnecessary delays to schedule," the property plan outlines. "DCE shall seek to minimize external review and approval requirements."

DCE is short for Delta Conveyance Facilities Design and Construction Enterprise, a private-contractor group embedded within the state Department of Water Resources to work on the proposed tunnels.

In a June interview, Neil Gould, an attorney for the Department of Water Resources, said planning for the proposed tunnels was no more than 10 percent complete and had focused on assessing the environmental impact.

Asked if planning the process of eminent domain was warranted as part of the project's environmental review, Department of Water Resources spokeswoman Nancy Vogel said Monday in an email, "identification of properties that may be within the project area is necessary ... as DWR needs to estimate the proposed project's potential impacts to those properties."

Public water agencies paid for the property acquisition plan, Vogel said. Those include water agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area and Central California, as well as Southern California, she said.

Patterson, with the Metropolitan Water District, said the latest revisions to the overall tunnels project laid out using more public land and less private land.

Osha Meserve, an attorney for some of the delta farmers fighting the project, said the latest plans still proposes taking roughly the same land as before.

TOXIC WATER : MAX BLOOD LEAD LEVELS IN FLINT CHILDREN '7 TIMES HIGHER' THAN CDC GUIDELINES



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5ZbiIXPw2s

Experts who blew the whistle on lead-contaminated water in Flint, Michigan, and its impact on children said that some kids had blood lead levels far higher than those US health officials consider “elevated” – and the state knew kids were being poisoned.

As Michigan officials scramble to help the affected community, a lead researcher who helped expose the toxicity of the water, Virginia Tech professor Marc Edwards, said city and state officials should have known that the Flint River was highly corrosive before they decided to switch from the Detroit water system in 2014. He called the lack of water treatment “unprecedented.”

Without phosphate treatment, the corrosive water flowed from the Flint River through the city’s lead pipes for 17 months and became contaminated. Failures at multiple levels of government exacerbated the problem and delayed the response to the developing crisis.

There is a “strong correlation” between high lead water levels in Flint and blood lead levels in children, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha said. A pediatrician at the Hurley Medical Center, Hanna-Attisha told to RT that the highest readings that she and the state recorded for elevated blood levels in Flint were 38 micrograms per deciliter.
