Washington 2010: Barack Obama is keeping his promise to lower the sea levels, and he’s starting with the drought plagued Midwest where Lake Michigan water is being shipped by the boat loads over to China! By using a little known loophole in the 2006 Great Lakes Compact, Obama admin are allowing Nestle Company to export precious fresh water out of Lake Michigan to the tune of an estimated $500,000 to $1.8 million per day profit. Come on Mr Obama we need your help, By draining the precious jewel of the Great Lakes in the middle of America, our federal water managers are allowing the export of our water out of our country across thousands of miles of oceans into the Asian basin plagued by huge population centers who are suffering from their constant lack of fresh water. How’s that for cutting America down to size?
The water is being sold at a “240 times markup,” that is, well over 240 times its production costs. (2) In 2006, then President George W. Bush signed into law a set of agreements aimed at safeguarding and maintaining the Great Lakes which hold 20% of the world’s fresh water. But clever bureaucrats and corporate profiteers discovered they could use a loophole to bottle and sell Lake Michigan water, water intended for use by its surrounding states and their watershed. By saying “this loophole allows for Great Lakes water to be labeled a COMMODITY,” our public water officials are allowing the huge supply to be tapped and sold off to companies like Nestle at a very low price. This water can then be flipped for huge profits! Surrounding wildlife and water critters depending on fresh Lake Michigan water now are feeling the shortage, and our much needed relief from the horrible Midwest drought of 2012 must compete with foreign countries for water that belongs to America! If anyone is wondering if this current Administration really does have the concern of America at its heart, then this little publicized Water War should be a huge wake up call for all of us.
Gorgeous Flathead Lake in northwest Montana boasts one of the largest fresh water lakes west of the Mississippi River. It will come into their cross hairs soon, if we don’t get busy and start contacting our do nothing Congress about this travesty at 1-
877-762-8762. Montana and other western states already are up in arms about this all out attempt by Democrats to shut off irrigation water in the Klamath Falls River Basin.

Four dams are slated for permanent destruction. Who can forget what has been done to America’s breadbasket, California’s Central Valley, along with the San Joaquin Valley? Our American farmers, our citizens now must compete with foreign countries for our own American water. When will Barack Obama’s insane war on America’s fresh water supply end?

    Any bottled water in #1 and #2 plastic is never good from any company, because both bottles are toxic. I use glass bottles and get Kegen water from a neighbor. I do not buy my beer in cans either because all cans are lined with BPA plastic.

    Never purchased it, and never will.

    People have the right and privilege to "give away" their money in nearly any way they desire,

    America has proven for 200+ years that "people do the craziest things" with their money, and the money of others.

    I was unaware of this, but some months ago I bought a case of that water b/c I couldn't get to Costco & it has the worst taste of any product I've tried. This makes me wonder if the US owns all the water rights in the great lakes or does Canada have any say at all?

    THE WORLD is running out of water. THE WORLD is running out of food. This is a much bigger problem than one lake, one country, or one ocean. Something needs to be done world wide to expand resources and eliminate population growth.

    I could not agree more. If the US politicians want to represent China and other countries then let them don their Mao, Stalin clothing and move to China. They are doing much damage to the U S and still getting paid big bucks for it. If we were doing this same amount of damage, we would be facing a firing squad right now.

    Wow.

    "Draining the great lakes"



    Can whoever wrote this get any more vitriolic?

    I also love how Nestle is doing it, but it's Obama's fault.....

    I love how it's Obama's fault that Georgie W signed into law something that "safeguards" the environment.....but allows for corporate expliotation.

    **whispering**

    And of course NO conservative has EVER allowed corporate, er....job-creators to exploite the seas / oceans / rivers / deserts / wetlands / forests in the name of capitalism.



    Obama is just SOOOOOOOO EVIL.

    Seriously, I'm waiting for you to write the post where he drinks blood or uses blue eyed, blonde baby girls for salad croutons.

    Hey Obummer, Stupid!!! if you would ok the damn Pipeline then you wouldn't have to ship the damn water across the US polluting our air from the damn trucks. The Chinese would be Ok with the water with a little oil in it, It's probably better than their fresh water they've get now!!!

    I think all water should be pump out of the ground and sold, it is a resource like any other. If you want to drink you should pay, as you would for oil and gas.
    Why should you have water for free, its a disgrace. Also think of the jobs in bottling factories.

    The Chinese need to take some of our American dollars and start cleaning up their water. I get so weary of being brow beaten for our trash and need to recycle. But consider the sheer number of Chinese only drinking bottled water due to their water pollution, our waste is barely a drop in the bucket.

    and what ppl do not understand because it isn't being reported, is that in the near future, we will endure serious water shortages.
