Several months ago, Citizens Newswire covered the issue of the Great Lakes being drained and shipped to China one liter at a time by Nestle.
It appears people are beginning to finally catch on. It is not just a matter of who controls our water and sets the price for it, it is also a question of the global redistribution of water—literally taking the water and shipping to other counties.
On the cost side, recall that Citizens Newswire previously pointed out the huge profits to be made by taking control of our waters, which the Bush family is doing in South America. Four years ago when I started DRA, water was going for $40 or maybe $80 per acre-foot in N. CA, $800 per acre-foot in San Diego. Bottled into 1-liter bottles, water goes for $1.5M per acre-foot.
Like I’ve been saying to the rural states, you have what the world wants, if you just don’t let your “representatives” participate in stealing it from you.
It’s now or never to stand up and exercise every means possible to keep what belongs to us including recall elections, law suits, and civil disobedience.

Subject: WOW! WHATA WILD WATER WEBSITE! ! ! Where is it all going????

WOW! WHATA WEBSITE! This from Michael Gale READ IT . .. SIT UP AND PAY ATTENTION ! !
And don’t quit there! Following are additional sources that could indicate what it is really all about if our State of Montana allows another government take over its CONSTITUTIONAL OBLIGATION to protect the water rights of its citizens!! If water levels of Lake Michigan (the size of a small ocean) can be lowered by exporting fresh water to China, think what could happen to waters of our Flathead Lake, Hungry Horse Reservoir and Lake Kookanusa. And why do you suppose the Ogallala Aquifer is being targeted also. . . and the Upper Missouri River Breaks feeding into the AGR lands of Middle America and the great Mississippi? We are the land famous for ABUNDANT WATERSHEDS! ! PLEASE DON’T LET IT BE TAKEN AWAY FROM ALL OF US! ! !
Is there any protection against where our water rights legislation (HB 262) could take us if this 1500 page CSKT Water Compact document is approved by our present legislative body and control goes to the reservation government (under federal government control) already abusing irrigation water rights of its non-native property owners? Could this attitude and unacceptable behavior help explain the millions being directed toward passage of this single,apparently VERY SIGNIFICANT BILL ????? In support of its perpetrators?
JUST HOW WELL INFORMED, REALLY, ARE THE MONTANA CITIZENS? We know how desperately this compact is being forced through by the volumes of promotion through PEOPLE WE KNOW and can identify. Governmental over-reach would extend beyond the eleven designated NW MT counties, but would impact the financial security of the entire state.
Clarice Ryan, Bigfork, MT. 406-837-6929 A “NO” vote on HB262 is imperative! !
