I hadn't realized how serious this is becoming until I searched Google News for reports just from this week and was genuinely surprised by the number. Has anyone heard of this issue near you?

Here's a link to a blog with a list of areas affected: Blue-Green Algae Areas Affected

Google Jellyfish and you'll see another big problem growing out of control.

There's alot of things threatening the world at any given time I imagine.

Nodularia (from the article) is actually a bacterium, but looks very much like slimy algae. It is the bane of aquarium keepers and signals a dirty tank with insufficient filtration---and it toxic to a lot of organisms.

It sounds to me like pollution and climate change is catching up with us in not so good ways.

2nd that.

Perry was the lake I went to all the time, till a couple weeks ago. Clinton and hillsdale are still open for now, but are much smaller.

With the heat wave and all, it is a real bummer to no be able to go to the lake.

It's recently caused several lake closings here in oklahoma, even caused adverse heath problems for a state rep.
We have had it before but never this bad that I can remember.

Feel free to step forward and volunteer to be the first human to voluntarily self-terminate, if that is what your planetary ethics dictate that humans should do.
