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:

Sewage Dumping in Desert Results In Jail Sentence?
Sewage dumper gets jail time

KINGMAN - The manager of a septic pumping company who admitted to dumping raw sewage in the desert has been sentenced to 45 days in jail.

Michael Bray Whitten, 27, also received three years probation and 400 hours community service after he pleaded guilty to one felony count of littering.

Whitten was arrested in February after the Mohave County Sheriff's Office received a tip that employees of All American Septic Pumping were dumping raw sewage rather than taking it to the landfill for disposal.

Another employee of the company, John Evans Dunn, 46, has also pleaded guilty to one count of littering in the case. He will be formally sentenced Feb. 4.

According to court files, Whitten admitted to illegally unloading a 5,500-gallon tanker on a semi-regular basis. The illegal dumping took place in several locations, including along Faith Road in Dolan Springs, in a wash behind the company's business and in the desert on property owned by John Neal.

County Attorney Jace Zack said the state could not find evidence that the owner of All American was involved in the illegal dumping. He said it was the prosecution's belief that the employees were pocketing the cash given to them for landfill fees and then dumping the sewage elsewhere.

Zack asked Judge Rick Williams to sentence Whitten to at least 30 days in jail to serve as a deterrent.

"You can't dump, say you're sorry and not go to jail," he said.

Whitten's attorney, Joseph Carver, described his client as "a good man who did a bad thing." He said the idea that Whitten was pocketing the landfill fees was a convenient theory for the state, but that there was no evidence to suggest that's what actually happened.

Carver said the case was Whitten's first contact with law enforcement and a mistake he would not repeat.

"Here's a guy who will certainly never find himself in this position again," Carver said.

Williams said jail time in the case was appropriate. He cited the recent case of Maricopa County contractor Jeff Inglin, who was sentenced in December to 30 days in jail and 400 hours community service for dumping more than a ton of trash in the desert off of Temple Bar Road, at U.S. 93 mile marker 19.

"While you may live the other 99.9 percent of your life with honor, the court can't help but believe that you would still be out there dumping raw sewage if you hadn't been caught," he said.

Whitten will be allowed to serve his jail sentence in 48-hour increments through January 2011. He was also ordered to pay Neal $2,500. A hearing in March will determine restitution to the county.

Algeria burning the few trees left that enable clouds to cross onto the land?
Click The image and study carefully this picture from Nasa Earth Observatory.

Those clouds from the ocean have crossed onto the land where the forest meets the ocean.

Look through the fires and see the tiny clouds crossing at the point where the forest abutts the coastline.

Now question why they burn the forests?
