after researching this....this is a hoax...no massive water sell off to china...Obama has nothing to do with it. the "great lakes pact" is still in affect.....Nestle has tried to make a deal with Canada...but it was a no go.........It's more INFOWARS CRAP....if anyone can find evidence of this, please point it out.

China isn't going to learn to stop poluting their rivers if we start selling them bottled water. The great lakes are low as it is, if they let China take it then they cannot stop any American from taking it. I hope this isn't true, the businesses will have something to use against the government regulations protecting the lakes and drain these lakes.

By constructing a means to purify and distribute the water to homes, as well as by purifying and bottling it. Pumping, purification, piping, and bottling (as well as the infrstructure required to do these things) aren't free. Thus: water bills and a price label on bottles of water.

This might be concerning......if the Great Lakes were a closed water system with a non-replenishing water supply that could actually BE drained. It's not a closed system though....so, drain all ya want, it'll bring more as it always has through the natural ways.

I think Krazyshot showed quite a long and twisted line of telephone being played here though, so it is quite a distorted story that pops out the far end.

Let's see. Obama is causing this, you say. The problem is that the shipping is happening under the 2006 Great Lakes Compact. And the President in 2006 was....... (drumroll please)...? So the whole premise of your post is a lie. A slanderous lie. And Nestle, the company doing the bottling, is a Swiss concern, not Chinese.


No I didn't, but you wouldn't know that cause you didn't read what I had to say about it.

IDK about the Great Lakes, but Sitka Alaska is selling water to whoever can/will pay for it.

Check out:

Quoting the second link:

"Sitka wanted to sell its water for one cent a gallon"

Really? A penny?

Im calling BS on this one, seriously, draining the lakes and sending the water to china.

A. What would be the point?
and
B. How the hell would they do that?

Infowars is good, but they do get carried away with unrealistic stories sometimes. Which is a shame!
