It is shocking to me how many people just write-off these massive die-offs and say that it's been that way in the past. In the past few years some
shocking things have happened with a frequency never seen in the past. There are lower levels of dissolved oxygen in many waters around the world due
to primarily pollution and it's exacerbated by warmer temperatures.
I live near the great Lakes and this is a huge problem. Due to phosphorus entering the Great Lakes from fertilizers and water treatment to mitigate
lead leaching in potable water, anaerobic algae grows and drops oxygen levels. The lowest levels are seen in the colder months. There is a link
below explaining how this phenomenon is occurring in Lake Erie. It's the EPA's own work. I'm not a fan of the political leaders of the EPA, but
they do have credible scientists as evidenced by this link.
In the past few days, Florida issued the first alert EVER for red tide. And, the "Enviroccultists" worry about the increase of CO2 when we are
treating our water (rivers, lakes, and oceans) like sewers? The two most important things for planet earth: water and oxygen.
