Toxic Algae Update from PBS

September 8, 2014

I recently posted a great, informative video on the toxic algae blooms in the Great Lakes with aquatic biologist Dr. Alan Steinman.

PBS Newshour has a new update.

    Another “great and informative” video that reinforces Dr. Steinman’s comments, particularly how extreme rainfall events brought on by global warming are involved in washing nutrients into bodies of water.

    This is going to be a tough nut to crack because so little attention has been paid to this problem on a broad scale, and agribusiness will be so greatly “inconvenienced” by mitigation efforts. Here in the DC area, the Potomac and Susquehanna rivers and Chesapeake Bay have had such problems for decades, and progress has been slow (partly because of the multi-state watersheds).

    We have had nothing as severe here as what happened in Toledo, but until we do (and such things start happening all across the country), it will be “out of sight, out of mind, BAU”.
