The world as we know it

Water, water everywhere

Just a quick post on some interesting sites I found;

Lake Eyre updates here Wheres the press telling us how wet it is there?

Sydney dam levels here 60% and rising. Certainly not doomsday predictions!

Goulburn, Pejar dam and water politics here Remember Goulburn water supply got the press for showing global warming was real! Yet the reality was quite a different set of facts;

Quote “In May 2005, the council of the city of Goulburn announced that storage had reached a crisis point as dam levels fell to 10% of capacity this was simply not true. Even though there had been no significant rain since December 2004 Sooley Dam had maintained a capacity of 70%. Despite this the council enforced the strictest of water restrictions, and released a political motivated statement that the city was likely to run out of water by early-2006″….

“In March 2006, in the drought, Council released all the remaining water from Pejar (about 900ML or 10% of its storage) when Sooley Dam was full. This was a clear breach of the operating rules. Council figures show that over the period of this release from Pejar, the City experienced the largest amount of water lost from storage on record. About 600ML of water was unaccounted for, or about 4 months supply at that time. This is the equivalent of 70% of what was in Pejar, lost”.

On a humorous note my post on WWFraud is targeted daily for porn spam! Glad to have a spam blocker.

The New Rich

We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in. Thomas Paine

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. RONALD REAGAN,
.......
My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. Adlai E. Stevenson Jr
.......
If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other. Carl Schurz
.......
The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech. Justice Anthony Kennedy
.......
Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. Patricia Sampson
.......
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. Thomas Macaulay
.......
The law will never make men free, it is men that have to make the law free. Henry David Thoreau
.......
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. George Washington
