Dear All

I see it's 'Grant Time' - must be nice, all I get from the government is the bill for all this - or more debt on my Grandchildren !

Seems to me that some of you folks might be interested in your latest 'Footprint' - which come to me from my Libertarian Australia friend and author - Ron Kitching.........Cheers........Ken Shock

ps: the water resources Australia's people are not allowed to touch are the tropical rivers of Northern Australia - where most of the fresh water of this mostly desert country flow - these rivers locked up as 'wilderness', UN 'Heritage' etc etc etc

I guarantee you that the Chinese leaders who are building one Coal powered plant per week are laughing about that, it will be soooo simple to just come down there and take all that undeveloped land for cultivation - and they most certainly will do that !!!  They just love the UN......Luuuuuv the UN, hey Agenda 21 is their baby and the dude who wrote it, Maurice Strong, lives in Bejing these days.
(you might want to google this bird, although all you Earth Day folks likely know it was his thing - or do you?) Oops, what's this?

quote from the report of the 1976 UN's Habitat I conference which said: "Land …cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principle instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore, contributes to social injustice."  
( color this red because it might well have been lifted from the Communist manifesto - and this policy led to the collapse of the USSR and 100 million deaths by actions of Cummunist governments against their own people - so why do we need this centrally controlled madness in Washington State?? - I say give the 'Grant' $$ back to the taxpayers..........Ken )


The Letters Editor

The Water Footprint Network.

Known as The Water Footprint Network, a new “footprint” organisation is becoming the “in vogue” interventionist organisation.

More than twenty conferences have been held in the Western world since 2002 and more are planned over the Western world this year. 

Apparently we are to be introduced to the “water footprint” we have personally and as a nation.

A book on the subject and dozens of papers are available. Obviously the object of the exercise in not production and storage of fresh water supplies, but control of the population’s use of that water.

Here are some figures to make you feel guilty about your  water “footprint”

The production of one kilogram of beef requires 16 thousand litres of water.
To produce one cup of coffee we need 140 litres of water. 
The water footprint of China is about 700 cubic meter per year per capita. Only about 7% of the Chinese water footprint falls outside China. 
Japan with a footprint of 1150 cubic meters per year per capita, has about 65% of its total water footprint outside the borders of the country. 
The USA water footprint is 2500 cubic meter per year per capita.

Lying virtually idle four fifths of Australia’s water and agricultural resources exist on and or north of the Tropic of Capricorn. Green interventionists do not permit Australians to take advantage of these vast resources.

WRIA 16 Mailing List

An agenda is attached for our next meeting on Thursday, Aug. 20th, from 1:30-4:00 at the Hoodsport Library.  The primary items on the agenda are to finalize which projects will be funded in this year’s grant agreement with Ecology and to hear a briefing on the draft Jefferson County Shoreline Master Program.


I have also attached a summary of our last meeting.


I hope to see you on Thursday. Please let me know if you have any questions!
