Water Charges? Get the figures right to start with!

In a recent article in the Irish Examiner we were told that water charges may have to be introduced because each EU citizen uses two Olympic size swimming pools of water per year. What utter nonsense!

I’d like to know how it’s possible that the average EU citizen uses the equivalent of two Olympic size swimming pools annually. I don’t know who does these ‘studies’ or what criterion they use but maybe a simple course in arithmetic would be a condition before making these kinds of bizarre and ludicrious statements.

An Olympic size swimming pool holds 2.5 million litres, this is then doubled to 5 million litres. Divide this by 365 days and we get a daily usage amounting to 1 litre short of 14,000 litres, per person, per day.

My bath measures externally 1.8m long x 0.75m wide x 0.3 deep (to the overflow) giving a volume of 0.405m EACH = 405 litres.

My kitchen sink, using the same measurement, holds 20 litres x 2 times daily = 40 litres.

The washing machine is maybe used 3 times a week or approx 100 litres daily.

I can’t drink more than 5 litres a day.

My garden is fairly well watered by nature and car washing is not my thing.

So we have a daily consumption of 550 litres a day. Ok so say I go crazy and start to wash the car fanatically and scrub myself 3 times a day, let’s call it a 1000 litres a day.

Where do the other 13,000 litres go? Evaporation?

These are the kind of statistics we are flooded with on a daily basis by the manmade global warming fanatics. They spout such rubbish expecting the gullible and misinformed not to check them out. When did the human abilty to reason disappear? Was it washed away by a tsunami of statistics bearing no semblance to reality? Why do people blindly follow this blatantly phoney propaganda?

When you have quotes like this from the so called experts it’s not surprising that people are so pathetically conditioned to fall for any spurious rubbish these people come out with.

“We need to get some broad based support,
to capture the public’s imagination…
So we have to offer up scary scenarios,
make simplified, dramatic statements
and make little mention of any doubts…
Each of us has to decide what the right balance
is between being effective and being honest.”
– Stephen Schneider,
Stanford Professor of Climatology,
lead author of many IPCC reports.

It doesn’t matter what is true,
it only matters what people believe is true
Paul Watson,
Co-founder of Greenpeace.
These kinds of statements should blow the lid off of the whole manmade global warming scam to bring in carbon taxes payable to Mr. Al Gore’s company, Generation Investment Management with his business partner Mr. David Blood. Yep, Blood & Gore, you CAN’T make this stuff up! Unfortunately you can however make up any figures you want to ‘capture the (dumbed down) public’s imagination’ and ‘offer up scary scenarios’ and what is it they want to be ‘effective’ about? Al Gore should know a thing or two about manufactured figures to create any given result, he’s been the victim of that himself as he well knows whilst touting himself as the guy who used to be the next president of the US. He also claimed to have invented the Internet!

Statistics and damned lies are the norm for Mr. Gore as a recent court case in the UK showed. The judge cited 9 glaring falsehoods amongst the 35 points of misinformation regarding CO2 being to blame for global warming in his incoherent truth movie.

When will people wake up? The planet has been cooling since 1998. That is known fact and even one time alarmists are admitting they have been wrong. David Karoly, one of the foremost alarmists last week had to finally admit that “temperatures have dropped since 1998 in both surface temperatures and in atmospheric temperatures measured from satellites”. In fact, the fall in temperatures since 2002 has already wiped out half the warming experienced in the last century.

Ask yourself, think, reason…..Where is the proof outside of dubious figures? The Antarctic has expanded over the past 30 years by 100,000 km2 each decade, the Arctic ice cap is growing again and the seas are not flooding the coastal cities anywhere. Look for the evidence with your own eyes and let’s stop the scaremongering and ask the real question. Why are we being lied to?

I have my own theories….see other categories for those
