The zebra mussels havent worked their way into your parts yet?

[-] -2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Do you ever not attempt to change the subject?

[-] 3 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

It has to do with algae levels. If you had a clue what was going on in the great lakes, you would know.

Its called expansion.

Subject changing would be me asking why anyone would give a fuck what someone who openly accepts money in politics, on an occupy site, thinks.

What is your take on zebra mussels working their way through Lake Ontario and into Lake Erie? Makes tha water clear, but almost too clear. Perhaps they are covering a lot of the pollution going in? Perhaps they are increasing it?

Or maybe youre just a dick.

Are you calling names again??

I take you want to change your name again?

You don't know shit about the Great Lakes so shut your lying pie hole.

Ya, growing up a mile off of lake ontario from the age of 7 to 17 couldnt possibly have led to any understanding.

Not all of us live in a basement like you do.

I did a lot of small mouth bass fishing there. I liked the berkley power baits, thought they did well. Off of Hamlin Beach State Park. Devils Nose. Smoke a few doobs, and go fishing. good times.

Erosion is a big problem as well. Lots of property going off into the sea, Theres an old restuarant out in the lake about 30 feet out off of troutburg.

More attempts at insult. Yes of course.

You can leave now. You have nothing to add.

I would love to see your self interest loving ass act like this in a GA.

Props, self coined terms, claiming anyone who doest post on corporations are ignoring them regardless of your own inaction.

Wiggle fingers dpwn abound!!!

I would like to see you run through your neighborhood calling everyone an ass and asking them to help out the cause.

You can leave now. You have nothing more to add to anything at all.

[-] 2 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

The only ass here is the one on an occupy site who said they would take money from murdoch.

That being said, you arent alone. Theres a slew of people out there who claim to be something and then sell out as soon as dollars flash.

Judging from the complaints on top posts of you and the mascot, I would say the two of you could take a vacation to DailyKos and not be missed at all.

Everyone should be aware of how the environment is being ravaged. Thanks for posting this Shooz.

Fertilizer shed or shit flowing into the lake. Old news. Lake Saint Clair is Famous for bacteria.

Pardon my French. But Michigan does use septic tank pumped organic matter to be spread in fields. The law may say different, but as I remember it no one really know what happens to the crap from people tanks. Country Living produces some by products.

The algae bloom you are looking at is an entirely different critter.

The bacteria issues in Lake St Clair, is mostly caused from guano and local sewage overflows, not field run off.

I'm on a local, centralized sewage treatment system that I pay taxes to maintain, so I don't really know what is done with what is pumped out of septic tanks.

My bad, now I remember. Sewage overflows...

Fertilizer run-off along with other nitrate run-off pollution - changing the consistency of our waters - fresh and salt - pollution just the same as if it were toxic waste being put into the waters - this kind of greening is poisonous to existing water inhabitants environments.

A bit more in depth.

In this case is has much more to do with phosphorus.

[-] 1 points by quantumystic (1710) from Memphis, TN 1 year ago

phosphorus is another fertilizing agent.

The area you're looking at used to be among the best sport fishing waters in the World.

The Put In Bay area of Ohio was the best Small Mouth Bass fishing you could find anywhere.

Not anymore.

This is also the reason why you will find outdoors people - hunters and fishers supporting the Sierra Club and other such organizations - as they see the changing environment.

That looks like paint washing up.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

I can't wait until it looks like that going over Niagara falls!!!

It will be so picturesque.

Maybe then, someone will notice.

Besides all the people on the Canadian side laughing their asses off?

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

That was a Canadian beach you saw that water washing up on.

Pelee Island is the large one about halfway across and east from the point on the northern side of the map. That point is Point Pelee National Park, in Ontario.

A closer look at the greening shows the spring runoff.
