Introduction to Operation OASIS

The massive waste water problem that currently pollutes our bathing waters costing £billions to process throughout the world can be used to irrigate and reforest desert coastlines to induce rainfall.

Our aim is to use the return ballast capacity of super crude carriers which currently transport sea water half way around the world at great financial and environmental cost. This ballast is discharged into the sea, often introducing invasive marine species which affects the stability of indigenous species of flora and fauna.

The E.U. is legislating against this practice and tanker operators will be forced to seek an alternative.

Operation OASIS offers an exciting opportunity for ballast water. Transporting treated waste water to irrigate and reforest arid coastlines to induce rainfall has to be the way forward.

One tanker loaded with 300000 cubic meters of treated waste water would support 57 hectares of forest for a whole year.

Reclaiming deserts to enable people to feed themselves and grow great forests will offset the carbon emissions from shipping.

With global food shortages upon us we are already feeling the strain on our pockets in the developed world and renewable resources are in rapid decline. Drought is affecting all major food producing countries and wells are running dry. Water scarcity poses major problems for us and our children. We need to act fast in order to avert a major global catastrophe.

When the mighty river Amazon dries up and it's fish stocks die it is time to take stock on how we manage our fragile environment. For more detailed information visit our website and forum at:

Tight Rope Walkers at Hennock Reservoirs

A great day out with Jude, Sylvia and our 4 Bull terriers. Ooops nearly forgot Titch the Lancashire Healer.

At the end of a gorgeous sunny walk through these tranquil lakes we stopped for a coffee from the flask and met some friendly people who set up a tight rope, and after applying considerable tension to it with my immense strength of course :) they proceeded to try the art of tightrope walking. I decided to film it for them and for our own amusement as they became thoroughly engaged in this somewhat hillarious activity. I even had a go myself but these guys n gals were much better than me :)
