Egyptians will need 50% more water of the Nile in 4 decades while the river will dry under 2 decades due wanton damming

May 8, 2012 in Egypt & her 50% extra Water

The Egyptian experts are projecting when their population reaches 150 they would need 50% more waters than today. But today undue damming in the highland plateau of Ethiopia will dry the river within half time they are projecting. Just look the two images at the source of the Nile due to undue damming and irrigation progressively. In the coming two years after the end of the great death dam it will completely dry in the summer time…

How long it will take to fill up the Ethiopian Dictators’ millennium death dam and revive to reach to Egypt. Following the foot step of the Ethiopian mad man the new south Sudan, Uganda, Congo and Rwanda are planning to follow suit his example of developmental destructive water power.

Though Egypt is currently entitled to 55 bcm of the Nile’s total annual flow of around 84 bmc under a treaty with the eight other countries which share the river basin, once damming process reach its apex by the end of 2013 there will be no water to discuss. This is mainly Ethiopia will use almost 70 % of the 87% of the Nile water she is contributing to the great Nile. And all will be used to the commercial farm sold for the land grabbers of India and Saudi Arabia in the water intensive rice farm land in Gambella and Benishengule regions.  “Should the Nile’s total flow remain constant, Egypt will eventually need some 92 per cent of the 6,695 kilometer-long river’s waters, according to NPI’s estimate.”  Though according to the same projective studies  each Egyptian will have a Nile “stake” of 400 cubic meters in the river’s waters — well below the global water poverty index of 1,000 cubic meters if it continue  to flow at the present rate which impossible. So the Nile is going to the road of destruction not only for Egypt the main stake holder but for all the riparian.

Egypt’s water resources are limited to the Nile River, deep ground water in the Delta, the Western Deserts and Sinai, sporadic rainfall and flash floods while the highland Ethiopia is a water tower with over 13 rivers and lakes.

Agriculture accounts for 85 per cent of water demand, while domestic and industrial use makes up 8 and 6 per cent respectively. The remaining one per cent is used in navigation and hydro-power.

Since 2009 the Ethiopian regime has planned to build over 500 dams and barges all over the country. The worst comes when the Ethiopian dictators started building in 2012 a   mega dam on the Nile despite a long-running row with Egypt. This death dam will stop the Nile’s yearly floods to Egypt by breaking the natural cycle of survival which existed from time immemorial, thus stopping the natural flow of the water breaking the cycle existed long before the making of the Pyramids by creating cataracts.

The one sided approach of the Ethiopian regime not only increase the l salinity like Aswan but will stop its natural flow.

Melese Zenawie delays Nile treaty short of finanical asset and expertise to build his “Death Dam ” on the Nile

November 8, 2011 in Delay of Nile Treaty

Ethiopian Melese plays  to agree in  delaying  the  ratification of a treaty that strips Egypt of rights to survive  depending on the Nile water  her only  source of  sweet  waters until it has elected a new government.  the truth of the matter is that the Ethiopian Dictator is  short of financial  asset and expertise that delays  not for Egypt’s sake at any cost .   Egypt has been at odds with upriver nations over changes to colonial-era treaties that gave it veto power over dam projects. Six Nile basin countries, including Ethiopia, have now signed the deal, effectively stripping Egypt of its veto.Egypt, threatened by rising temperatures and a growing population, is almost entirely dependent on the Nile for its water and has been nervously watching hydropower dam projects take shape in upriver nations.An Egyptian team of 48 politicians and activists visited Addis Ababa this week as part of a charm offensive to try to push for a compromise. The visit was coordinated with Egypt’s Foreign Ministry. A delegation visited Uganda last month.”They met the prime minister on Monday and requested that Egypt be given time until it sets up a new government,” Ethiopian Foreign Ministry spokesman Dina Mufti told Reuters.

 

“The prime minister has agreed to their requests and also offered to allow a team of Ethiopian, Sudanese and Egyptian experts, as well as international scientists, to see the benefits of the new dam,” he said.

Egyptians are expected to vote for a new leader in December after popular protests toppled Hosni Mubarak in February.

Ethiopian dictator announced last month it was building a $4.78-billion death dam along its share of the river and that it had not informed Egypt about the project.

“The Ethiopian premier comments are very positive and reflect the new spirit Egyptian ties to Nile basin countries are now witnessing,” said  the lolled Egyptian Water Resources and Irrigation Minister Hussein el-Atfi trusting the words of worst than Mubarak dictator Melees Zenawie who is trying to dominate the region though mega death dams.

“Egypt is keen to not oppose any project that would be in the interests of Ethiopia and the rest of the Nile basin countries, as long as it does not hurt Egypt’s own water interests.”

Since Mubarak’s fall, the military-backed interim government has not openly criticized the new treaty, instead focusing on diplomatic ties in the search for a compromise has given Melese Zenawie unprecedented power showing the Egyptian weakness in the time of democratic revolutionary transition.

Some members of the Egyptian team in Addis Ababa, which included three presidential candidates and a former diplomat, blamed Mubarak’s foreign policy for the Nile problems, saying he had neglected relations with other African states, forgetting the positive role played by the Egyptian deadly dictator in stopping Zenawie from building death dams on the Nile which will eventually dry out…

The newly  cheated Egyptian presidential candidate just  playing for local poultices of election lost the water power to Melees by declaring  that  “The (new Nile treaty) was signed in the absence of Egypt … It’s a result of bad foreign policy under Mubarak’s regime,” Hamdeen Sabahy, an e, said.

Ethiopia’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said both countries recognized there had been a thaw in relations and said Egypt’s interim prime minister would visit Addis Ababa in May. Egypt’s foreign minister said the visit would take place next week.

Under a 1929 pact, Egypt is entitled to 55.5 billion cubic meters a year of the Nile’s flow of around 84 billion cubic meters, but now with Melees Zenawie treaty not only Egypt will losses its share but also Ethiopia will lose the Nile by deadly dams drying it out .

At all cost this will not be long before the true faces of the deadly Ethiopian Dictator exposed by internal revolution like that of Hosni Mubarak, Kaddafi and Ben Ali. It is better for Egypt to stand firm in her position and keep its promises with the Ethiopian people not of a worst dictator Melees Zenawie.
