And in return the lakes get filled with Zebra Mussels and Asian Carp!

Have the ChiComs saw a piece of Antarctica off and fill their tanks that way!

If they weren’t so busy dumping anything and everything into their water supply, they would have plenty of fresh water.

This is interesting, How come the Chinese don’t do the same thing with water from the Panama Canal? It would be easy to pump their tanks full as they transit it.

I’m glad someone is paying attention. Here in the great lake states we’ve been screaming bloody murder about what’s been going on with the attempts to seize control of the water and the power centralized in Chicago.

Well, maybe you can. In fact I think someone took a kernel of fact somewhere and grew a giant beanstalk out of it. Just for openers, Canada shares authority over Great Lakes water and this kind of scheme would require their aapproval as well as all the GL states.

Hopefully Barry is sending China water collected from the mouth of the Milwaukee River where every time it rains the sewer overflow from the Metro Milwaukee Area is dumped into Lake Michigan. And it is Democrats who set up this lousy sewage system.

“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...”

This is nonsense unless there is not enough water to run Niagara Falls and the hydroelectric plant below it.

The problem is not that someone is using a provision in the rules to make a profit, the problem is how the rules prohibit so many profit-making business opportunities with water that would otherwise just run out to the ocean.

Obama has solidified Chicago control over the great lakes in Chicago with the appointment of Cameron Davis as great lakes czar. Davis is also head of the alliance for the great lakes who is happily tearing out dams across the region and forever removing them from ever producing power again.

Its interesting to note that Illinois has the tiniest stake in great lakes affairs but has the greatest control.

“Wouldn’t it be cheaper to desalinate ocean water.”

I was thinking the same thing.

It seems like it would be cheaper for the Chinese to build a series of de-salinazation plants along their coastline than to buy and ship water from Lake Michigan at a mark-up of 240 times production costs to Nestle.

If you lived here and saw some of the crap they’ve tried to pull with the water in the past you wouldn’t think it was out there at all. Things like taxes imposed by the square foot for parking lots due to rainwater impediment. There’s a group pushing legislation to impose meters on private wells. A few years back I caught a guy measuring how far my well was from the lake.

It certainly isn’t an easy thing, but lake levels can drop fairly easy from exporting (To China and the SW U.S.) and a couple of years of drought.

This must be stopped.

The next thing is when our food growers sell their entire crops to foreign nations, likely China too

This is coming. Russia took all the wheat from the Ukraine and let the people there starve by the millions.

LOOK IT UP!

WAKE UP, AMERICA!

So we are selling bottled water to the Chicoms at a 240X markup and the sky is falling? Oh my! I am pretty sure it wasn’t that long ago we were worried about rising lake levels.

I am more worried about California siphoning the water off into their worker’s paradise. Not that the water would be missed but because we shouldn’t encourage any further migration to that place.

Great article here if you want the technical details:

They are not “our” food growers unless we now have communist collectives. Those farms are privately owned and the owners are free to sell their products were ever and to who ever they wish. If they wish to sell it to the Chicoms that is the right to do so.

If you do not like that idea then you are free to buy your own farm and sell exclusively to US citizens.

Lake Huron and Lake Michigan are effectively two lobes of the same lake; you can’t lower the level of one without lowering the level of the other.

Combined, they have a surface area of roughly 45,000 square miles.

To lower the level of the combined lakes ONE INCH would require removing roughly ONE CUBIC MILE of water.

They most assuredly are America's land and it might be necessary to limit other nations from starving Americans to death. It is wise to be proactive. After our water and food is gone is too late. Do not believe it can not happen.

Many are the ones that would sell it all for money. Of course planning to go to Europe or another land to secure their food.

Water is a necessity, as is food.
Tell the people of Ukraine it could not happen!

There is a fool born every minute, so we must be wise.

God bless America.

So, if the government is to confiscate Nestle’s rights to the water on its own property, should it at the same time confiscate other privately owned mineral rights? Perhaps private entities shouldn’t be permitted to own and develope oil or coal or natural gas or iron ore or copper or gravel either.
