A family member of mine who lives in Kansas mentioned the following in a recent letter to me.
"It was terribly hot here this summer — 2 summers in a row now — and no rain. Our ponds are drying up, and that is so worrisome."
Western New York Weather
Many crops failed due to lack of rain here in Western New York. Apples, peaches, raspberries, plums and many other crops were sparse or completely failed, devastating farmers.
We had unusually dry spots this summer. Western New York State is usually a very wet place.
There are corporations, like Nestle, illegally draining the water supplies in the U.S. For example, they have a pump that takes the water from rivers flowing into lake Michigan, and they have actually drained enough water that the entire lake has dropped a half-dozen feet or so in the past five or so years. They bottle the water they pump and then sell the water in America and also other countries.
The problem with this is that the more water is sitting in bottles, the less water in the lakes and ecosystems and the less rain.
Another problem with this is the plastic bottles themselves. The plastic off-gasses into the water, making the water mildly toxic.
The production of the plastic bottles is also bad for the ecosystem, using up a lot of water in the process and expelling toxic waste in clean water sources.
If it wasn't bad enough that this shrinks lakes, reduces rainfall, poisons the people who drink the bottled water, uses up clean water in the production of the bottles, there is also one more thing that happens.
After people are done with a water bottle they then put the bottles in the trash or recycling. Trash ends up in landfills which keep on growing and growing, and recycling uses up more fresh water in the process of manufacturing new plastic out of old plastic.
In other words, the lack of rain is partly the fault of water-bottling companies like Nestle. The is growing concern about it, and more and more movies and books on the topic are coming out.
'What Did You Do Once You Knew?' by Drew Dellinger
It's 3.23 in the morning and I'm awake, because my great-great-grandchildren won't let me sleep. My great-great-grandchildren ask me in dreams "What did you do while the planet was plundered? What did you do when The Earth was unraveling? Surely you didi something when the Seasons started failing, as the mammals, reptiles, birds were all dying. Did you fill the streets with protest when Democracy was stolen? What did you do, once you knew?"
What is the Belo Monte Dam?
It is actually four dams. Just for the work crew alone they've already cut hundreds of acres of rain-forest for worker facilities.
The BELO MONTE DAM is, as James Cameron has stated many times, the movie 'AVATAR' in Reality.
What you can do to save the indigenous peoples...?
Please, tell everyone you come into contact with what is happening in The Amazon Rainforest. Use your Facebook Page too, for it's a powerful way to spread the word.
Tell them of Belo Monte, (third largest dam in the world) and the other 59 dams which Brazil's President, Dilma Rousseff, has planned for The Rainforest and the terrible Decimation and Destruction that is already starting to happen as Belo Monte is already being constructed. We can still stop this from being completed.
Tell them of the Impending Genocide shortly to be visited upon the Indigenous People of the Rainforest who will be affected by these dams.
Chief Raoni of The Kayapo, and Shayla Juruna too, have both given decades of their life to trying to stop Belo Monte, travelling the world, speaking with World 'Leaders' and celebrities, to anyone who will listen.
Belo Monte is now being built illegally and very fast! There are still many lawsuits against it, yet Dilma Rousseff is steaming ahead with this insane idea. Many of those who backed her Presidential Campaign were then given contracts to build this dam. She has chosen to ignore deep concern from the United Nations and Amnesty International about her shocking treatment of the Indigenous Tribes affected, along with ignoring millions of signatures from around the world!
Indigenous People all over the world are under huge threat now, as their Land, Rivers, Mountains and Forests are being stolen and plundered for profit...
"25% of our oxygen, or every 4th breath of air we inhale, can be attributed to the Amazon Rain Forest. What happens to the web of life affects us all. The Belo Monte Dam is the first of 60 dams proposed by Brazil. Are you part of the problem or part of the solution?" - Jack Kohler
Speak to everyone you know of The Tar Sands, of the many sociopaths presently running the major Corporations and the world, of how they simply do not care about the terrible damage being done to the Earth.
Help save the amazon rainforest by signing these petitions from amazon watch.

Are you in a position of legal power? The following can be used in a courtroom against President Dilma Rousseff.
