We've been slimed by Dave's Blog

It sounds like a bad horror movie, but it's not. It's nature reacting to pollution, creating green slime on our shores.

Dave Dempsey reports:

Back in the 1960s, foul gobs of algae along Great Lakes shorelines made swimmers and sunbathers miserable before a crackdown on phosphorus pollution repelled the invasion.

Now, the algae are mounting a comeback and controlling it may be tougher this time

Read Dave's Blog's return of the green slime. Also read the Michigan Environmental Council's press release, Algae's Return Threatens Summer Fun on the Lakes. Download Something's Amuck, Algae blooms return to Michigan shores (PDF), that illustrates how invasive species, combined with legal loopholes that encourage phosphorus pollution, have opened the door for algae's comeback.

The Michigan Environmental Council represents 73 environmental and public interest organizations with a combined membership of more than 250,000 Michigan residents.
