Dear Mary,

Yes the lake has been here millions of years, agriculture however has only been here a little over a hundred years. Byproducts of agriculture called "runoff"- such as fertilizers- tend to wash into the lake. This changes the biology of the water. Because of these changes, the lake has algae blooms that never occurred in all those millions of years until recently. Combine that with climate changes, and we have a problem.

Was that too complicated? Deal with it.

No there is nothing wrong with Clearlake, that is why Lake County has become a Ghost Town. No one in their right mind would water ski in it because they resemble Swamp Thing when they depart. Who wants to put their brand new boat in that mess? No there is nothing wrong with Clearlake.. Tell that to the many many store owners who are starving because Tourism has come to a screaching halt.. No there is nothing wrong with Clearlake..That is why many lakeside residents are forced out of their houses due to the Horrendous smell and have to motel it. Mary do us all a favor and take a swim in Clearlake because "THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH CLEARLAKE" you algae sucking moron!

Mary,,
I am in agreement with your assertion of the longevity of the lake.
Many humans as so arrogant they feel their lives have such a lasting impact on mother earth it will not survive.
Horsenutzs!
Humans like any parasite on an organism are disposed of when they become a problem. Then the earth renews is self and starts the process all over again.

I love the putrid Lake. The smell makes me feel right at home.
It is a natural occurance.

Do yourself a favor and read a book sometime before coming on here and shouting your ignorance to to world. What's happening in this lake has been happening for million years. So lets review...Whats happening in the lake has been going on for a million years, and agriculture runoff has been happening for 100 years. So I think that the idea that the algae in the lake is caused by agriculture would be kind of stupid. Right? Or was that to complicated for you? I'm sure if you went to the local grade school they could find you a picher book that would explain in a way you could understand. Well maybe not, you sound like you are pretty committed to your ignorance.

Clearlake is like India with meth freaks instead of Holy Hindus, starving for Vishnu.

When I was a kid and lived in the bay area we camped here every summer, allllll summer!!! The lake was clear and you were able to swim, fish, ski etc. all year round --without-- the problems it has now. I'm 45 yrs old so to say this has been happening every year, guess what, WRONG!! I can remember seeing crappie swimming in the lake at the edge of the dock(s), yes it was that clear... We then moved up here when I was in my early teens, here again, the lake was clear, no wineries around to blame. Then, in my early 20's we started to deal with this algae, the smell & etc. Again, still no wineries UNLESS you drove over to Calistoga/Napa... My point is, no one can lay blame to our ever growing wineries and or the fields in which they grow & fertilize. Today you wouldn't get me in the lake! The problems have hit national magazines, Triple A summer mags, fishing mags & etc. This negative attention keeps our tourists away. Do you blame them? I don't... In closing, if someone can keep the algae and these mats away I'm ALL FOR IT!!! And, yes I'm happy to pitch in to help pay for it.:o)

I can only hope it doesn't require poisoning the lake.

1964, 1965, 1966. The Lake stunk and the squishy algae on the bottom was disgusting to walk on. I don't recall it foating on the top. I do remember that it was not as popular as other lakes because of the algae.

Been here since 1976, the lake has had it's good years and some real stinkers too but for the most part, the 515' of rich, organic sediments deposited over millions of years and warm, shallow water keep it fertile and green. If you fantasize about living on a clear blue lake, I suggest a move to Tahoe.

Hey WES CHEESBURROW !! Please make our lake a superfund cleanup site. Our county has money for mountains, islands , we're expanding our sheriff Dept.,and we repave beautiful roadways . Please hire a few thousand overpaid Govt. employees to oversee the several thousand Illegals (wouldn't want to discriminate) to poison the lake and make sure all life ceases. Then we drain the lake and paint the bottom blue ! YEA !
This all needs to be done annualy to ensure all your constituents can collect unemployment and eventually retire. Everybody wins!
