Nearly everybody globally has to change a LOT of things they do.

Pah, our lakes are much dirtier than your lakes: https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/...rish-in-summer

This is because, while the climate science is crystal clear, global climate politics remain murky, mired in fear of disrupting the status quo.

Hi TA. Haha, I haven't seen the latest cyanobacteria reading.

I may have to call the water authority, since Australia's reputation is at stake.


I've reported the blue-green algae before, which happens near the end of every summer.


In the latest local announcement I saw, all the angry hordes of locals were blaming the council.

Blue-green algae and many algal blooms are caused by excess fertiliser and animal waste runoff - in this case, from land upstream into our lake.

The hordes would freak out if they suddenly realised they actually had to change their own land use.

(I left a subtle little comment about the causes in a tiny offshoot discussion. )
