The Politics of Green and Agricultural pollution

The Politics of Green and Agricultural pollution

Red and Green Algae Bloom

Red and Green Algae Bloom

An amazing victory will be celebrated in Florida, a victory for the Reefs and the Inland waters.

A federal judge orders the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)  to set limits on Agricultural pollution and polluters that have deemed over 2000 Inland bodies of water impaired. The phosphorus and nitrogen over enriched waters of inland Florida have created massive Harmful Algae Blooms for over a decade, and consequentially also assisted massive Dead Zones (Hypoxia) to flourish.

Excellent job goes to David Guest and Earth Justice for the lawsuit and follow through.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – November 16 – A federal judge in Tallahassee today approved a historic consent decree which requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to set legal limits for the widespread nutrient poisoning that triggers harmful algae blooms in Florida waters.
