Water: The World Is Facing a Dire Shortage of This Essential Element
by Mark Sircus Ac., OMD (see all articles by this author)
(NaturalNews) When it comes to our water supplies we are trusting the wrong people and that trust will hurt us in ways we will regret. The waters, the rivers of life are precious to those who value life.(1) To certain others, they are just things to throw trash into, to pollute, and to make money off of at the expense of destroying the environment. Life is just unthinkable without water, for we cannot be separated from water and live. Water is so important that its pollution and poisoning has a direct impact on our health and even on the quality and effect of our minds and feelings.
We are the element water and we have reservoirs, ponds, rivers and seas of fluids within us. The flow of blood, the lymphatic system with its fluid movement, endocrine fluidity, urinary fluidity, the fluidity represented by perspiration, saliva, tears, sexual secretions, and lactation are all influenced by water. Clean water is absolutely essential for healthy living. An Adequate supply of fresh and clean drinking water is a basic need for all human beings on the earth, yet hundreds of millions of people worldwide are deprived of this. When you add the fact that most drinking water from public systems are laced with toxic chemicals then we begin to see that its not hundreds of millions who have a problem with water but billions. Even bottled water has its problems.(2) We thus need to take so much care when it comes to the water we drink.
'If the world's water was contained in 100 liters or 26 gallons, then what is readily available to us would amount to one-half teaspoon.' - Dr. Sang Hwang
If there were no water there would be no world as we know it so pollution of our water or the deliberate injection of hazardous chemicals like fluoride and chloramines into it is nothing less than devastating to our biological existence over time. When approaching a topic as big and as important as water we have to have some sense of reverence for there is something sacred, almost sacramental in the very fabric of water. Thus water holds the potential to change our world, to change us. It holds the power of life and death and the most dominant influence over our health. In the Midwest today there is a serious drought that drives farmers and everyone else to think about water more than anything else. Next to our breath there is nothing more important than water.
The connection between water and disease wasn't established until a scant 100 years ago and the connection between water and human consciousness has still to be discovered. Observant physicians noted early on that not all diseases were transmitted through contact between individuals. The two greatest epidemics of the 19th century -- yellow fever and Asiatic cholera showed evidence that some factor other than direct contact with disease victims was necessary to spread the disease. Typhus and waterborne typhoid fever raged through urban areas, proving to be one of history's most virulent killers. Cholera could wipe out its victims in as little as 12 hours. Cholera is a disease that can take a man suddenly down in good health at daybreak and kill him by nightfall. Water is well capable of being the harbinger of death and disease so it is best to know and understand the water we drink and bathe in. In developing countries, four-fifths of all the illnesses are caused by waterborne diseases, with diarrhea being the leading cause of childhood death.
Medically we are still in the Stone Age when it comes to our understanding of water. Public health officials seem to deliberately choose to remain blind to ever present dangers of all the chemicals finding their way into the public water supplies probably because they are deeply associated with an industry and a medical paradigm that uses toxic chemicals in the form of drugs that are, as we shall see below, also polluting our waters. Water pollution is caused by human activities: 1) By point sources i.e., factories, sewage treatment plants, underground mines, oil wells, oil tankers and pesticides from agriculture. 2) Non-point sources include mercury in the air, acid deposition from the air, traffic, pollutants that are spread through rivers. 3) Chemicals deliberately put in the water like fluoride and chloramines.
Water reminds us of the need to live simply and close to the ground but the lesson has been lost on modern man who has not really comprehended his total dependence and vulnerability to water issues. The CIA considers global water scarcity "a significant issue in security," said John Gannon, a former CIA assistant director and former chairman of the National Intelligence Council. Even as we continue to take water for granted, things are getting critical as water levels in many aquifers around the world are dropping, in some places by several meters a year.(3) In recent measurements, in Waukesha near Chicago for instance, the water level had dropped about 600 feet with the greatest loss being over the last 20 years. Professor Liu Yonggong, of China Agricultural University in Beijing, indicated that the water table beneath much of the North China Plain, a region that produces some 40 percent of China's grain, has fallen an average of 1.5 meters per year over the last five years.
Lack of water means lack of food.
"Future competition for water seems likely to take place largely in world grain markets." - Lester R. Brown, President of the Earth Policy Institute
An unexpectedly abrupt decline in the supply of water for China's farmers poses a rising threat to world food security. China depends on irrigated land to produce 70 percent of the grain for its huge population of 1.2 billion people, but it is drawing more and more of that water to supply the needs of its fast-growing cities and industries. As rivers run dry (4) and aquifers are depleted, the emerging water shortages could sharply raise the country's demand for grain imports, pushing the world's total import needs beyond exportable supplies. Since 1950, the population of China has grown by nearly 700 million, a staggering increase. Since 1950, the global renewable freshwater supply per person has fallen 58 percent as world population has swelled from 2.5 billion to 6 billion. With finite and diminishing water supplies the human race is like a fast moving car about to collide with a solid wall of water scarcity, which is not being helped at all by the global warming effect and the weather changes it is bringing throughout much of the world.
The Yellow River water in China is now loaded with heavy metals and other toxins that make it unfit even for irrigation, much less for human consumption, along much of its route.
None of the proposed solutions to the water crisis -- importing water, water conservation, expanded use of desalination of seawater or developing genetically modified crops that use less water -- will be "sufficient to substantially change the outlook for water shortages in 2015," according to Global Trends 2015, a report by the intelligence council. Agriculture accounts for two-thirds of water use worldwide and 80 percent to 90 percent in many developing countries. Some of this is already coming home to Californians who, as of New Year's Day 2002, have had three of their eight water pumps on the Colorado River shut down by federal order. Now, much less water is churning down the 242-mile aqueduct toward coastal Southern California, where 17 million people rely on snow-melt from the Rocky Mountains for washing dishes, flushing toilets and watering lawns. This is a pivotal moment in the contentious history of water in the arid West and in many other places around the world. We are just at the beginning of a problem that has no way of going away.
'The frog does not drink up the pond in which he lives.' - American Indian Proverb
1. Oceans contain 97 per cent of our planet's water but it is too salty for drinking, irrigation or industrial use. Only 3 per cent of earth's total water is considered fresh water. About 2.997 per cent of this fresh water is trapped in polar ice caps and deep within earth's surface which is too costly to extract. Thus only .003 per cent of earth's total available water by volume is available for human use. The global picture of water is not pretty with some 1.1 billion people still lacking access to improved drinking water sources and some 2.4 billion to adequate sanitation.
2. In March of 1999, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) released a report called "Bottled Water, Pure Drink or Pure Hype?" NRDC's report points out that as much as 40% of all bottled water comes from a city water system, just like tap water. Federal regulations that govern bottled water only require it to be as good as tap water, not better. There are no assurances, regulations or requirements that bottled water be any higher in quality than tap water.
3. Iran. The water table is falling by 2.8 meters annually in the agriculturally rich Chenaran Plain in northeastern Iran. That, coupled with the cumulative effect of a three-year drought, has driven people out of the region, generating a swelling flow of water refugees.
4. Egypt. Egypt is entirely dependent for its water on the Nile River, which is now reduced to a trickle as it enters the Mediterranean. Neither Egypt, Ethiopia, nor Sudan can increase its take from the Nile except at the expense of the other two countries. Populations in these three countries is projected to climb to 264 million in 2025 from 167 million today. A quarter-century ago, with more and more of its water being pumped out for the country's multiplying needs, the Yellow River began to falter. In 1972, the water level fell so low that for the first time in China's long history it dried up before reaching the sea. It failed on 15 days that year, and intermittently over the next decade or so. Since 1985, it has run dry each year, with the dry period becoming progressively longer. In 1996, it was dry for 133 days. In 1997, a year exacerbated by drought, it failed to reach the sea for 226 days. For long stretches, it did not even reach Shandong Province, the last province it flows through en route to the sea. Shandong, the source of one-fifth of China's corn and one-seventh of its wheat, depends on the Yellow River for half of its irrigation water.

Excellent article Judee. I do believe that we have taken this wonderful and life critical element for granted, nor do we really know or care about it's not only life sustaining, but spiritual properties.
I don't support the use of genetically modified crops which require less water. Why are the environmentalists, the scientists again, not avidly working at a solution or is water going to become the next commodity, an essential life source that we will be held ransom for, where only the one's who can afford to pay will be able to buy it and in essence stay alive.
Take a read at this....it only touches the tip of the iceberg of how our natural resources are being sold to corporations...and not corporations within our borders.
Greed and power has gone insane! :angryfire
Fighting the Corporate Theft of Our Water
By Tara Lohan (http://www.alternet.org/authors/8104/), AlterNet (http://www.alternet.org/).
All across the United States, municipal water systems are being bought up by multinational corporations, turning one of our last remaining public commons and our most vital resource into a commodity.
The road to privatization is being paved by our own government. The Bush administration is actively working to loosen the hold that cities and towns have over public water, enabling corporations to own the very thing we depend on for survival.
The effects of the federal government's actions are being felt all the way down to Conference of Mayors, which has become a "feeding frenzy" for corporations looking to make sure that nothing is left in the public's hands, including clean, affordable water.
Documentary filmmakers Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman recently teamed up with author Michael Fox to write "Thirst: Fighting the Corporate Theft of Our Water (http://www.thirstthemovie.org/book.html)" (Wiley, 2007). The three followed water privatization battles across the United States -- from California to Massachusetts and from Georgia to Wisconsin, documenting the rise of public opposition to corporate control of water resources.
They found that the issue of privatization ran deep.
"We came to see that the conflicts over water are really about fundamental questions of democracy itself: Who will make the decisions that affect our future, and who will be excluded?" they wrote in the book's preface. "And if citizens no longer control their most basic resource, their water, do they really control anything at all?"
As the effects of climate change are being felt around the world, including decreasing snowpacks and rainfall, water is quickly becoming the market's new holy grail.
Mayor Gary Podesto, in his State of the City address to his constituents in 2003, sang the praises of privatization to his community, located in California's Central Valley. "It's time that Stockton enter the 21st century in its delivery of services and think of our citizens as customers," he said.
And there is the crux of the issue -- privatization means transforming citizens into customers. Or, in other words, making people engaged in a democratic process into consumers looking to get the best deal.
It is also means taking our most important resource and putting it at the whims of the market.
Currently, water systems are controlled publicly in 90 percent of communities across the world and 85 percent in the United States, but that number is changing rapidly, the authors report in "Thirst." In 1990, 50 million people worldwide got their water services from private companies, but by 2002 it was 300 million and growing.
There are a number of reasons to be concerned.
"Globally, corporations are promoting water privatization under the guise of efficiency, but the fact is that they are not paying the full cost of public infrastructure, environmental damage, or healthcare for those they hurt," said Ashley Schaeffer of Corporate Accountability International (http://www.stopcorporateabuse.org/cms/index.cfm?group_id=1000). "Water is a human right and not a privilege."
There are also significant environmental considerations -- with private corporations, sustainability can be tossed out the window. "Climate change is a warning that uncontrolled abuse of the earth's natural resources is leading toward planetary catastrophe," the authors write in "Thirst."
"Who is to set the necessary limits to the abuse of the environment?
Private companies fighting for market share are incapable of doing so."
Privatization has been pushed aggressively at the federal level for decades, but especially so in the last six years. "There is a kind of fire sale of everything in the public sector right now," said Alan Snitow. "Water, we think, is the line in the sand -- when your water is actually a profit mechanism, people really react negatively to that."
"Thirst" beautifully documents the coalitions that are forming in communities that are fighting back. But the battles are not easy: They must confront massive political muscle and unlimited financial resources of multinational corporations, not to mention our society's religious belief in the power of the marketplace.
Privatizing municipal water systems is globalization come home, said Deborah Kaufman. In 2000 Bechtel privatized water in Cochabamba, Bolivia, with such miserable consequences that it was shortly driven out of the country in an incredible feat of cross-class organizing. But just a few years later, it was awarded a $680 million contract to "fix" Iraq's ruined water systems.
"What's happened in Iraq is really emblematic of what the Bush administration is doing," said Kaufman. "We view the privatization of water in the United States as the World Bank come home -- the third-worldization of America and American communities."
It turns out the United States is an attractive place for multinationals looking to make inroads in the water business. The three main players are the French companies Suez and Veolia (formerly Vivendi), and the German group RWE.
The companies first pushed water privatization in developing nations. "But in many instances, those attempts didn't pan out as planned, it being difficult to gouge governments and customers that don't have a lot of money," Public Citizen (http://www.citizen.org/about/) reports. "The U.S., by contrast, presented the promise of a steady, reliable revenue stream from customers willing and able to pay water bills."
The companies that already controlled the small percentage of U.S. water held privately were bought by the big three: Veolia picked up U.S Filter, Suez got United Water and RWE took over American Water Works.
The results have been disastrous, as "Thirst" shows -- rates are increasing, quality is suffering, customer service is declining, profits are leaving communities and accountability has fallen by the wayside.
In Felton, Calif., a small regional utility ran the water system until it was purchased in 2001 by California American Water, a subsidiary of American Water, which is a subsidiary of Thames Water in London, which has also become a subsidiary of German giant RWE.
Residents in Felton saw their rates skyrocket, "Thirst" reports. A woman who runs a facility for people in need saw her water bill increase from $250 to $1,275 a month.
RWE also bought the company controlling the water system in Urbana, Ill., and locals have been unhappy with the service it provides. "A few months ago, I got a notice on my door saying the water was turned off, and that when it came back on, I needed to boil it before I used it," said the city's mayor, Laurel Prussing. But when she called the number, the company didn't know what was going on -- and it was no wonder, because the call center was located in Florida.
The list of abuses in "Thirst," which represent only a handful of communities, are plentiful:
In 2006, two top managers at a Suez/United Water plant in New Jersey were indicted for covering up high radium levels in drinking water ... In Milwaukee, Suez subsidiary United Water discharged more than a million gallons of untreated sewage into Lake Michigan because it had shut down pumps to reduce electricity bills ... In Stockton, Calif., a citizen's watchdog group reported that water leakage doubled in the first year that OMI/Thames took over system operations. In Indianapolis, customer complaints nearly tripled the first year of Veolia's contract, and inadequate maintenance resulted in hundreds of fire hydrants freezing in the winter ... Overall, it has proved to be a recipe for disaster.
"Seeking to consolidate market share, private water companies are merging or buying other companies, creating a volatile and unpredictable market," they conclude, "hardly the kind of stability required for a life-and-death resource like water."
The water crisis comes home
Corporate interest in water systems in the United States exists for very good reason -- we have a water crisis. Our drinking and wastewater systems were largely designed a hundred years ago and in many places, little improvements have been made.
Aging systems combined with the pressures of increasing population, development, and pollution have left many communities close to disaster.
As a result, corporations have swooped in to offer public officials an easy out -- not only will they run these aging plants, but they'll save the city millions of dollars in the process. At least that's the promise. So far, it hasn't panned out.
In 2005,"Thirst" reports, 200 mayors of large and small cities said they would consider privatization if it would save money. In addition to lobbyists, publicists and ad campaigns, the corporations have also directly gone after public officials to sell their wares.
"The U.S. Conference of Mayors has become an engine of water privatization through its Urban Water Council," they write in "Thirst." "One mayor described a Conference of Mayors session he attended as a kind of feeding frenzy, with companies bidding to take over everything from his city's school-lunch program to its traffic lights and water services. Financed by the private water industry, staffed by former industry officials, the UWC works hard to give its corporate sponsors 'face time' with mayors."
And the federal government is not doing anything to help -- in fact, it's doing the opposite. "The administration has backed language in legislation to reauthorize existing federal water funding assistance programs that would require cities to consider water privatization before they could receive federal funding," reports Public Citizen. "And in lockstep with private industry's goals, the EPA is increasingly playing down the role of federal financial assistance while actively encouraging communities to pay for system upgrades by raising rates to consumers -- exactly the strategy the industry hopes will drive cash-strapped and embattled local politicians to opt for the false promise of privatization."
The EPA has projected a needed $446 billion for drinking water infrastructure over the next 20 years, but the money that is needed and that is actually allocated in the budget falls billions short.
Snitow calls the under funding of public water systems and public infrastructure as a whole, "systematic" under the Bush administration. "On water, President Bush says he wants to fund private companies to do it. He does not want to give money, even loan money, to government agencies at the local level to improve their own water systems."
This mindset goes against public opinion and environmental law. The Safe Drinking Water Act passed in 1974 says, "The federal government needs to provide assistance to communities to help the communities meet federal drinking water requirements." And a national poll showed that 86 percent of Americans supported creating a water infrastructure trust fund.
But this issue is not a partisan problem. As reported in "Thirst," in 1997 the Clinton administration changed the law to the benefit of private companies. Previously municipal utility contracts were limited to five years, but Clinton changed it to allow contracts to be extended up to 20 years. "The rule change unleashed a wave of industry euphoria with predictions that private companies would soon be running much of what is now a public service," they wrote. In the following five years, municipal water contracts with private companies tripled.
"Privatization comes from both Democrats and Republicans. Particularly the Clinton wing of the Democratic Party. Clinton advanced this in a number of areas -- Bush has taken it to the extreme," said Snitow.
And across the country, Democrats are guilty as well as Republicans. "In Lee [Mass.], one of the key people supporting the Veolia privatization is a liberal Democrat. He has a great record with unions, on gay rights. He is a social liberal, but he wants to privatize key public services," said Snitow.
"There is an ideology that is bipartisan and is part of the old Washington consensus which is that the market can do everything better, it can be more efficient," he continued. "I think that we are seeing the chickens come home to roost on this with Iraq. You are seeing the ultimate apotheosis of the kind of vision that they had in mind -- where they would turn over the entire government and the resources to private multinationals. And, if that is efficiency, I think that most people in the world would want themselves counted out."
Not for sale
"Thirst" documents not just the consolidation of power through corporations but the public resistance that is often, despite seemingly impossible odds, successful.
Time and time again throughout the book, citizens responded to local threats but realized they were part of much bigger effort against water privatization around the world and the wholesale auction of the commons.
Even if you don't live somewhere under threat at the moment, there is something for everyone to do. We can work to create a trust for drinking water and wastewater; to drop conditions in federal funding that favor privatizing water resources; to block water corporations from obtaining access to public funding through tax-exempt private activity bonds; and to promote strong public management of water resources. Or you can work to support organizations like Corporate Accountability International (http://www.stopcorporateabuse.org/cms/index.cfm?group_id=1000), Food and Water Watch (http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/water), Sierra Club (http://www.sierraclub.org/committees/cac/water/) and others who are organizing around the issue.
"There has to be preemption -- companies come in secretly and people don't know there are negotiations going on, and communities that are organizing are coming from behind," said Snitow. "If there is more consciousness about this and more mayors know that their political lives are going to be spent fighting this issue, then I think fewer and fewer of them are going to say this not the way for me to leave my mark on the city.
They'll choose something else. I think there is a lot of potential for victories, for changing the water policy in this country and it won't be a minute too soon, given what's going to be happening with global warming."
Taking a stand against corporate control of water means believing that some things, like the lifeblood of our communities, should not be for sale.
"Whether clean and safe water will remain accessible to all, affordable and sustainable into the future, depends on us," write Snitow, Kaufman and Fox. "The stakes could not be higher. The outcome will surely be a measure of democracy in the 21st century."

In my predictions of 2 or 3 years ago, I predicted the "beginning of water wars". Some is real, some is contrived.
First of all, you don't live in a desert and complain about a lack of water. Secondly, very soon, all water resources will be declared world resources OR corrupt state officials will sell our water resources to private cooperations to be sold to the highest bidder. (A Spanish cooperation is bidding on a lease of a Pennsylvania toll highway), and you haven't seen nor heard the last of that.
Probably as soon as the water shortage goes worldwide, Bushco and family will begin selling their water under their land in Paraguay (the largest known underground fresh water aquifer). Hell NO they didn't know that when they bought it. Just a coincidence right? :poke:
How about well sell the OPEC nations water at $100.00 a barrel?

How about well sell the OPEC nations water at $100.00 a barrel?
Naaah! That's not a high enough price. How about $198.00 a barrel! :naughty:

This is and will become the next huge scam parallel to CO2!!
The WaterWarCrimes are the the crimes carried out by political, legal, judicial and business insiders, in Canada, who attempted to swindle control of a bulk water export monopoly over the export of fresh water from Canada to the United States and Mexico, the subsequent viscious personal attack on British Columbia lawyer, John Frederick Carten, by the Governments of Canada and British Columbia because he was embarked on a course that would expose these crimes and the criminals to the light of day, and the dispicable attack upon his friend and colleague, Karen Audrey Gibbs, who was seen to be an ally of Mr. Carten.
This blog is dedicated to the continuing fight for justice by Mr. Carten and Ms. Gibbs who have turned the tables on their enemies, launched an unprecedented lawsuit in Canada's Federal Court, publicized the crimes by the insiders, and who are systematically destroying their enemies in their fight for justice.
Eight crooked judges who found against them were exposed and suddenly died. Three Chief Justices who manipulated the system against them were exposed and resigned. Politicians who abused their positions of power were exposed and suddenly dropped dead.
A remnant of the crooked political, judicial and legal insiders within the Governnments of Canada and British Columbia and some of Canada's most powerful law firms are desparately trying to stop the lawsuit from moving forward because their careers, their professional reputations and, possibly, their lives are at risk.
This is a huge story that has been suppressed and mis-represented by the Canadian media and it continues to influence Canadian politics to this day.

British Columbia Government Insider - Jack Ebbels - Dies. Murder Is Suspected. (http://waterwarcrimes.blogspot.com/2010/02/british-columbia-government-insider.html)
Jack Ebbels, a lawyer and a former Deputy Minister with the Government of British Columbia, died February 25, 2010.
He died from a sudden heart attack while skiing in Canada.
Jack Ebbels was closely connected to the WaterWarCrimes.
Jack Ebbels was the senior lawyer from the British Columbia Ministry of the Attorney General, in 1988-89, assigned to "the deal" when the Government of British Columbia broke the GATT, the Canada US Free Trade Agreement and the Water Act, a domestic law, duly passed by the legislature of the Canadian province of British Columbia.
According to media reports appearing in Canada on his death, Jack Ebbels was "a deal maker".
According to unnamed sources in Canada, Jack Ebbels was a civil servant who took bribes.
Approximately two weeks before his sudden death, the Web Site http://www.waterwarcrimes.com/ began posting the information about Jack Ebbels and his past conduct as it related to the WaterWarCrimes.
At about the same time, Mr. Colin Beach, president of Aquasource Ltd., a company in a lawsuit with the Government of BC over the WaterWarCrimes advised Mr. Justice Peter Leask of the Supreme Court of British Columbia that he would be calling Jack Ebbels as a witness when the lawsuit went to trial.
Perhaps it was the pressure of the exposure of his past mistakes that induced a cardiac arrest in Jack Ebbels but there was motive for murder because Jack Ebbels was in a position to put some prominent people in Canada in jail by telling what he knew about the WaterWarCrimes.

There is not one tiny shred of doubt in my mind, that fresh, viable water will become increasingly scarce in the not too distant future. It will be controlled by a few powerful people/corporations, and wars will be fought over it. Nothing can live without water... No coincidence IMO, that the Bush family just happened to buy up thousands of acres of land in Paraguay (I believe :thinking: ) that contains one of the largest underground reservoirs of fresh water in the world.

The plot thickens on this one. Not one word in the MM about this....
Dead Judges Don't Lie: Canada's Biggest ScandalThere are nine dead judges connected to the Canadian water exports scandal - Canada's Biggest Scandal.
Each of them committed crimes on the bench as part of the Canadian government strategy to destroy the whistle blower lawyer and the lady who was assisting him and each of them died after the lawyer and the lady turned the tables on them and started to publish their crimes.
They started dying in January, 2006, and the latest died in January, 2010. Some dropped dead, suddenly, after their crimes were exposed, and others developed illnesses and died a few months later.
The judges and their dates of death are: James Taylor, deceased, January 10, 2006; Sid Clark, sometime in 2007; Robert Edwards, November 5, 2007; Justice Antonio Lamer, November 24, 2007, Allan McEachern, January 5, 2008, Ralph Hutchinson, March 20, 2008, Hugh Stansfield May 7, 2009 David Vickers November 15, 2009 and John Bouck, January 18, 2010. .
In addition, two water export insiders, former British Columbia Deputy Minister, Jack Ebbels, dropped dead February 25, 2010, and former British Columbia Cabinet Minister Stan Hagen dropped dead January 20, 2009.
The Canadian and British Columbia Governments targeted the lawyer and the lady and attempted to destroy them because they were helping some Americans investors who had been cheated by the Governments of Canada and British Columbia in a water exports business venture and what they were doing threatened to expose political corruption related to fresh water exports at the highest levels of government in Ottawa, Canada's capital, and in Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, Canada's western most province.
The lawyer and the lady were reduced to poverty. Their careers were destroyed. Their assets were looted. Their families were in chaos. The lawyer and the lady were professionally and financially destroyed.
But, the lawyer and the lady fought back.
They searched for information that would prove their enemies were criminals. They interviewed private citizens from all over Canada who had similar horror stories about the Canadian judiciary and certain prominent Canadian law firms. They spoke to private investigators and police officers. They contacted people outside Canada for information.
They learned about the “judicial mafia”, a secret group of select Canadian judges who control the agenda in the Canadian court system and who fix cases for the benefit of their friends and colleagues.
Documents and information came into their possession which proved there had been a conspiracy that included the three Chief Justices in British Columbia, several BC Attorney Generals, a number of Premiers of British Columbia, one, possibly more, Prime Ministers of Canada and several judges who had acted against them in various court cases.
They began to publish that information and the judges started dropping dead. They filed two lawsuits in the Canadian courts identifying these judges as criminals and more of the judges started dropping dead.
In addition, two Chief Justices of British Columbia, Bryan Williams and Donald Brenner, and one Chief Justice of Canada, Antonio Lamer, took early retirement when their roles in the water export crimes were exposed or threatened to be exposed.
It didn't have to happen this way except certain people in Canada's government thought they could kick private citizens around and never pay a price.
The following information will set out the circumstances of the deaths and the reader can decide if any of the judges, the civil servant insider or the politician insider were murdered. It is always difficult to prove murder but, one thing is clear, someone had a motive for murder.
In the last few months of 2005, reports were made to several appropriate Canadian authorities concerning the serious criminal misconduct of Mr. Justice James Taylor of the Supreme Court of British Columbia who had been a former long term prosecutor employed by the British Columbia Ministry of the Attorney General. In addition to his participation in the WaterWarCrimes by sabotaging the whistle blower lawyer, one of the crimes Mr. Taylor was alleged to have participated in was the sexual abuse of children in exchange for favors given to criminals while he was a judge. Also, Taylor's case record showed that he had issued a gag order on child two sexual abuse whistleblowers - Arthur Topham and Kevin Annett -both of whom are well known in Canada alternate media. Shortly after the reports about Taylor were filed, on January 10, 2006, Justice Taylor suddenly suddenly dropped dead, at age 64, in excellent health, from an alleged heart attack while he was skiing at Mount Washington on Vancouver Island in Canada.
Mr. James Taylor was dead judge number one. Was he murdered? Did he commit suicide? Certainly, Justice Taylor's death was sudden and completely unexpected.
Reports were also filed about the conduct of Provincial Court of British Columbia Judge Sid Clark showing that he seriously mis-conducted himself by denying the whistle blower lawyer the fundamental right to call witnesses in his own defence at a trail where his liberty was in issue thereby setting the stage for the subsequent imprisonment of the lawyer by another handpicked Provincial Court judge. Judge Clark died at an undetermined date in 2007 from undetermined causes. Was this a co-incidence?
In October 2007, the Governments of Canada and British Columbia were served with legal documents that implicated Justice Robert Edwards, retired Chief Justice of Canada, Antonio Lamer, and retired Chief Justice of British Columbia Allan McEachern in the strategy of the Governments of Canada and British Columbia to attack the lady and the lawyer through the Canadian court system. Justice Edwards, in excellent health, dropped dead from a sudden heart attack on November 5, 2007, retired Justice Lamer died from heart problems on November 24, 2007 and retired British Columbia Chief Justice, Allan McEachern, died on January 11, 2008. Were these deaths merely co-incidences? Each judge had something to hide and each judge was in a position to blow the whistle on the insiders.
On March 3, 2008, legal documents were served on retired British Columbia Justice Ralph Hutchinson implicating him in the strategy of the Governments of Canada and British Columbia to attack the lady and the lawyer through the Canadian court system and he died on March 20, 2008, a mere 17 days later. Hutchinson's obituary stated he had been in excellent health but became ill a few weeks before he died coincidental with the date he was served with the legal documents. Judge Hutchinson was also in a position to expose the insiders in Canada. Was he murdered or was his death another co-incidence?
On January 20, 2009, British Columbia cabinet minister, Stan Hagen, dropped dead from a sudden heart attack at age 69 only a few hours after he had met British Columbia Premier, Gordon Campbell at a time when the WaterWarCrimes were becoming more widely known inside government circles due to the legal documents that had been filed in the Canadian court system. Mr. Hagen had also been a member of the cabinet of British Columbia Premier Bill Vander Zalm when the plan to create an illegal Canadian water export monopoly was set in motion by Canadian governments. Mr. Hagen had inside knowledge and he was a potential threat to some insiders. According to the newspaper reports, Mr. Hagen had been in excellent health. Was Mr. Hagen murdered or was his death another co-incidence?
On May 7, 2009, British Columbia Provincial Court Chief Judge, Hugh Stansfield, suddenly and mysteriously, died, at age 54, allegedly, from cancer. During hte period from April 1 to May 3, 2009, after documents were being assembled and exchanged over the internet between the whistle blower lawyer and a private investigator that implicated Judge Stansfield in the sexual abuse of children as young as six.
These documents were never delivered to anyone but agents of the Government of Canada are presumed to have been monitoring that e-mail exchange and Judge Stansfield may have been murdered or committed suicide.
Death by cancer was a convenient alibi because, five years earlier, Judge Stansfield had been treated for cancer but, death by cancer defied common sense because Judge Stansfield was seen to be in robust good health at a public hearing on April 25, 2009, and 12 days later he was dead from a disease that kills slowly over months or years.
During the period of time that the e-mail exchange was taking place, Mr. Jim Judd, the head of CSIS, Canada's equivalent of the CIA, KGB or MI6, and Mr. Kevin Lynch, the head of Canada's secret governing council, the Privy Council, suddenly announced they would be resigning. Lynch and Judd had probably been aware of Judge Stansfield's activities for some time but had turned a blind eye allowing innocent children to be sexually abused because the judge was a useful Canadian insider.
Judge Stansfield had been a significant player in the Canadian and British Columbia government strategy to destroy the lady and the lawyer through crooked court cases. Judge Stansfield had sent his legal assistant to spy on the lawyer's activities and, a few weeks later, that legal assistant went to the police, lied to them and persuaded them to file a criminal harassment charge against the lawyer. After the police swore the Information commencing the prosecution, the Governments of Canada and British Columbia collaborated to attempt to railroad the lawyer and commit him in a psychiatric hospital but, for reasons that are cloaked in secrecy, a judge was sent in from another court system not under the control of Chief Judge Stansfield and the lawyer was acquitted
Shortly after Judge Stansfield died, on June 10, 2010, British Columbia Supreme Court Chief Justice, Donald Brenner announced he would be retiring. Brenner had also been sent legal documents that implicated him (Brenner) in the Canadian and British Columbia government strategy to destroy the lawyer through crooked court cases. Brenner's retirement announcement was completely unexpected because he was 64, when he could sit to age 75. Was Chief Jusdtice Brenner beginning to feel the heat?
Sensing that Judge's Stansfield's death was related to the Canadian water export scandal, in July, 2009, the lawyer and the lady sent email correspondence to Canada's Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, Canada's Justice Minister, Robert Nicholson, the Head of Canada's Secret Governing Council, Mr. Kevin Lynch (who had not yet retired), and to Canada's Deputy Minister of Justice, Mr. John Sims predicting “more death and destruction”...................

I hear commercials on Genesis Radio all the time about a water purifier which extracts water from the air- just a dehydrator which runs the water through a filter. Such a simple idea at that. This device is still rather pricey,and only supplies a few gallons a day for drinking water.
It makes more sense than trucking water, or pumping it over mountains. Build houses with dehydrators and storage tanks. I don't imagine it would work very well in some parts of the country, but I'd love to pump some of the humidity out of air around here in August!

And, I thought we had the worst corruption problems in the U.S. As far as I know, there haven't been many dead bodies, though, except around the Clintons. :yikes:
