Just how low will Great Lakes waterways go? (10 photos)

Monday, October 15, 2012   by: Staff

Loyal readers Chuck and Teresa Parker sent us photos taken today around 4 p.m.

The images show the effects of wind on already low water levels in the St. Marys River between St. Joseph Island and Neebish Island just below Green Point, which is between Sailors Encampment and Stribling Point.

"According to reports from both governments,  this is nearing the record low set in 1964 and expected to surpass breaking all records," the couple's e-mail notes.

Verified info, a womanwho knows family works for them - Veolia Environmental Svc out of Milwaukee. Her husband drives the water to the ships. This is not a conspiracy theory.

China and Nestle are buying (stealing) our natural resources. My own family is helping them. Blue gold will determine the wealth of nations.

Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura • Series 2/Episode 6 • They call it "Blue Gold." Water is the new oil. Once a human right, it's now a valuable commodity, & corporations & super-rich oil dynasties are believed to be buying up water rights, controlling nations & populations. Jesse looks into the possibility of these activities finding their way to American shores & uncovers what may be a plot to literally steal the Great Lakes. WHY IS OUR GOVERNMENT NOT investigating this???

Who ever said that contrails were created by airplanes for nefarious purposes. It's a natural occurance from the aircrafts exhaust.. Oh how satanic......

Did you even watch the Jesse Ventura series on this subject?

What exactly do you mean by 'educated'? Do you mean get a 'degree'. I have a degree too. What degree do you have and maybe we can compare. *shakes head*

I can tell you're just an arrogant teen in his/her mid-20's who thinks that they know it all....

Just read a good article on how alot of the problem started when they dregged the St Clair river, by Detroit. In essence in doing so, they allowed a much higher volume of water to escape the upper great lakes at a higher rate. Essetially opened up a bigger pipe to the lower lakes. It's draining off faster than it can fill up!

Seen that program with Jessie and it is a real eye opener.

If Jesse Ventura has a show about it, it must be true. Good grief. 10/16/2012 9:47:23 AM Report

"Get Educated?" How about just reading Maude Barlow's book "Blue Gold" .. Don't worry about Jessie's conspiracies - because those have to be right *rolls eyes*

They dredge the St Clair to ensure ships can pass through the channel. Ironic that some of those ships contain water sucked from the Great Lakes, bottled and sold back to us at a higher price than gas or milk.
