Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I have been EVOKED!- Water now, not 2020!

Hi guys

So have decided to write to the shadow minister for the local river system, the shadow envoronmental minister, and the opposition leader. This is because they will definately be voted in, and the current government are poor to say the least ^_^

Ill keep a progress report on my blog

TO: Greg.Hunt.MP@aph.gov.au,Ian.Macfarlane.MP@aph.gov.au,Tony.Abbott.MP@aph.gov.au

Dear The Honourable Greg Hunt, The Hon Ian Macfarlane and The Hon Tony Abbott

Back in march, it was reported that the NSW desalination plant in Kurnell was running extremely
under it's capacity

This is capital that is being under utilised; it can apparently make 250-500 megalitres per day, and is
reported to be making only 25 megalitres.

My proposal, is that the capacity is increased, and the Australian Government help bottle
that drinking water, which can then be destributed by aid
charities to where it is needed. There is no point in investing millions
of dollars into a plant that is working hugely under capacity, when
there is a need for water elsewhere.

The bottles used could be made out of recycled plastics. A good system would be to have
somewhat larger bottles, like those found in offices, that are returned
after they are used, and refilled. Each zone that will be supplied will
have a fixed amount of bottles per day. If at the end of the day, they
do not retun all of the bottles, they will recieve less the next day
(only for one day, otherwise it defeats the purpose of the exercise).
This will provide an incentive to the people to take care of the
bottles, and therefore lower overhead costs.

This would maintain Australia's international reputation of being a generous nation, and
would help thousands in under developed areas, such as Africa, who can
walk many kilometres to gain access to clean water.

At the same time, if costs of bottling and exporting the water is too
high, any excess quantity can be pumped into the Murrary Darling Basin,
to support local agriculture and the ecosystem.

I do realise that my proposal might be unrealistic, for it is not
costed, but I would like to know if this proposal will be developed into
something real. I know it is a lot to ask, but I would like to be kept
informed about what is happening to my idea.

Thank you for your time.

Yours faithfully

Janak Patel


So basically I got a reply saying his staffer might pass it on- probably protcol to say 'look we listen to the people' but I'm gonna stay positive. I like the part about the broken promises =P

I'll keep you posted!

from Abbott, Tony (MP) <Tony.Abbott.MP@aph.gov.au>

Thank you for your email to the Leader of the Opposition, the Hon Tony Abbott MP.

Your views are being brought to Mr Abbott’s attention.

It is vital that the Coalition knows what people are thinking so that we can represent the interests of all Australians, and present people with a credible and
inspiring alternative at the next election.

Sadly, the Rudd Government has broken many of the promises they made to the Australian people in 2007 and this Prime Minister is increasingly looking like he
is all talk and no action.

You can be assured that in this election year, the Coalition will have a practical, direct and budgeted plan for Australia’s future.

If you would like to receive regular updates from my office, please sign up to our e-news updates by visiting www.tonyabbott.com.au/. For more detailed policy information please go to

Thank you again for taking the time to pass on your thoughts.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
