Religion United For Ecology (RUFE)
Comments by Bernie Coombs - 20 Jun 2007

Dear Mary and Frank.

Australia is a huge dry country about the same size as the U.S.. But with a population of only around twenty five million. It has been in the throes of a great drought for many years. The drought has temporarily broken over the last few weeks with floods and wild winds - more floods with many people drowning.

But! The four major cities around the coastline are still desperately short of water with the water storages still under 30%. I and many others have been campaigning via letters to the newspapers etc. for our State "Victoria" to build a large desalination plant and use our plentiful gas supplies for power to cut the greenhouse gasses. But! Wonder of wonders to-days headlines here is - not only is our State Government going to build one of the world's largest desalination plants - But power the vast amounts of energy required with WIND POWER.

There sure is plenty of wind along our coast, but I still can't understand why they still don't use the power of the wind driving the huge sea waves which can move oscillating floatation bouys up and down driving water turbines like an experiment I read of a few years ago in South America which proved to be a great success.

However! The latest technology in wind power should be adequate.

They've been using wind power in Holland for many many years.

Our water bills are set to double over the next five years.

But! I still can't understand all the kafuffle when (as far as I am concerned) our Lord's second coming is in our generation (and I'm 82 next month). And both America's President and our Prime Minister (and our Treasurer's brother is a minister and our opposition Labour leader is a staunch Roman Catholic) are all supposed to be Christians

Luke 21:32 "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled (K.J.).

It's talking about Israel becoming a state in it's own right and the six day war.

It won't be long now - I've been looking up for years.

In Jesus' name:

Bernie.
