Default Lake O latest toxin test doesn't look good

Fyi

Article states the test may results may not be the norm for the whole lake. Hopefully it was just an anomaly

Its tough to watch without getting ripping pissed off. Unfortunately I'm not sure if anything will ever get turned around. With the over development and and trashing of just about any body of water. It's really sad to see the trend of thing's to come.

You must be kidding....the politicians and developers will not stop until Florida is coast to coast, east to west, north to south, housing developments and strip-shopping centers. Greed knows no bounds! I am happy that I am old enough to remember when Florida WAS a paradise in the true sense of the word!

Unfortunately for us natives. No matter how bad it gets in Florida it will still be better than Cleveland or New Jersey in winter.

I would love to blame them, However I think it has more to do with all the development happening in West Orange County and around the mouse than the mouse itself. It all drains into the Kissimmee basin.

Someone made the comment on another thread. "Name one place in Florida the shoreline has improved for snook, trout and redfish?" I'm still trying to come up with that answer.

FWC - why would FWC be involved with in this sort of thing? An attempt to eradicate invasive species/flora?

So strange and contrary to the slogan on the side of their pickup trucks. But then I have watched over the years while they have presided over the netting of reefs and shallow ocean areas, the demise of the Jewfish, as it was then known, and countless other species, one by one. There seems to be far more enforcement, boat stops, safety checks and fish/lobster measuring than actual, meaningful conservation or protection measures. Odd.

If you get a chance to read Everglades Patrol by Tom Shirley. It goes through many of the changes to the FWC. But it will bum you out about the destruction of the glades.

Not as much $$ in conservation. A lot more available in citations.

Mickey started it, and brought all his friends. His friends are indeed most of the problem.

Cattle were pooping upstream long before Mickey and they are still pooping and it's still flowing south to Lake O. Tons of fertilizer going into the lake for the algae to feast on

I'm not much of a global warming guy but I'm not sure there is any way to deny that water quality in a lot of areas has deteriorated. The cause is debatable it sounds like but the result doesn't seem to be.

Default Global Warming

I think they had to stop using the Global Warming term and it now seems to be Global Climate Change. Lots of evidence against Global Warming, but who can argue against Global Climate Change? Of course it's changing...always has, always will. Duh.
