More than 25 years ago, my husband and I began to spend winters in Florida on the south west coast and we did not even know what "red tide" was. As the red tide became worse, people walking on the beach became ill. One year I looked out from my balcony to see our marina, which was very close to the gulf, covered with floating dead fish and the air was toxic. It was necessary to keep all windows and doors closed because of my asthma. There is no doubt in my mind that red tide is getting worse.

It's not so great on the east side, either. There are days you can't go to the beach without coughing, just this Saturday the easterly breeze brought the smell of rotting fish to my nostrils. The government denies global warming, too, that doesn't make it stop! It's the warmer waters that cause those nasty algae blooms in the first place ( and too many "nutrients" (pollution in layman's terms.)

Another prime example how money means more than a human life...without beaches> no tourist, no real estate, one lie after another..just plain 'ole nutrients'...from the mouth of our politicians.
Amazing how they try and convince the public they are not seeing what they are seeing..(and smelling)
