Sehr geehrte Frau Bundeskanzlerin,

allewelt schaut auf Kopenhagen. Meine Frage an Sie: Hilft Ihnen (m)eine Vor-Formulierung auf englisch für ein PRIMA-KLIMA-Vorhaben, welches in seiner Substanz auch von Ihnen hätte 'erfunden' sein können?

Since years it is well known: Survival of mankind depends much more of safe water supply then of oil/coal/gas. Surprised 'beyond measurement' I noticed, that the 'official water discussion' does not refer to ancient water positions from the Bible.

The battle for Lebanon in the MiddleEast . . . . is just a new version of the old struggle of TO BE OR NOT TO BE -- for those who are directly involved. But -- after all -- everybody is involved, who knows that less than 11 % of the World’s mainland is arable. More than 20 % is desert (because of lack of rain) and 97 % of the water resources in the World is salty sea. (2 % Snow & Icebergs and only 1 % Freshwater.)

It is time to remember that the relationship of desert and rain is older than mankind.

Much younger, it resembles somewhat to the relationship between man & woman. Who of them both is desert, who is rain? Who decides about 'The Intelligent Use of Water' - which is more a Matter of Intelligent Use of Brain?

Already in ancient times people connected their faith to agriculture with their faith to rain at the right time. More than 2500 years ago someone invented the witty thoughtful text (5.Mose 11,13+) :

"It shall happen, if you shall listen diligently to my commandments which I command you this day, to love your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, that I will give the rain on your land in its season, the former rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, and your new wine, and your oil."

( In short : No Brain -- No Rain -- No Grain !)

I have done some research in the field of modern meteorology. The result is interesting:

’Faith or no faith’ - that's not the question to be answered, essentially. More sense makes ‘brain or no brain’. Mankind has already invented desalination of seawater. The price is high. More than 50 €-Cent per ton. (~ 620 € per acre foot), due to high technique by osmosis and due to huge pipeline systems.

Using the principle of nature - (artificial) moistening the air with seawater by support of technical means - leads to less than 6 €-Cent per ton of rain (74.- € per a.ft). It works best with BIG IS BEAUTIFUL and demands approval, that even those will benefit 'beyond the border', who are not able to share the costs of to moisten the air.

But then becomes true what the UNITED NATIONS have been founded for:

" . . . and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more….”

So weit, so gut. Ich wünsche Ihnen glückliche Klima-Hände.

Gruß, Jürgen Friedrich (die konkrete Frage steht am Anfang)
