Red tide in Florida – 50 tons of debris – 09/11/2006

    Hi All

    Hmm, if anyone is interested in reading Greg Benford PhD
    geoengineering article that explains the experiment of dumping tons
    of iron into the ocean for the express purpose of creating algae
    bloom which is supposed to be the answer to ‘climate change/global

    I think we are being poisoned by unregulated science experiments,
    that are lining the pockets of the likes of gore and others.

    At least 50 tons of fish, seaweed and debris have been picked up off
    Manatee County beaches since the latest episode of red tide started
    to plague the area. Dead fish keep washing ashore in varying amounts
    each day, said parks supervisor Jeff Harnish. High levels of the
    Karenia brevis algae deposit a neurotoxin in the water that kills
    fish and causes respiratory irritation for beachgoers. Reports this
    week from lifeguards on Manatee County beaches describe a
    consistently noticeable red tide presence, with the daily intensity
    changing according to wind patterns. “Generally, in the morning, we
    have an east wind and then it rotates, and we get more fish kill,”
    said Joe Westerman, lifeguard captain at Coquina Beach. Sarasota
    also continues to be affected. On Friday, the Bay Buddies event,
    which was originally scheduled for Sept. 23 at Quick Point Nature
    Preserve on Longboat Key, was canceled “due to the extreme effects
    of red tide.” The group said it would reschedule “when red tide
    dissipates.” A report released Friday from the Florida Fish &
    Wildlife Research Institute put the highest levels on the west coast
    of the state right along the edge of Manatee and Sarasota counties.
    Manatee had a mix of low, medium and high levels with the highest
    levels found at the north end of Anna Maria Island. Sarasota listed
    mostly high and medium levels. Sarasota County releases its own
    report and this week’s numbers marked high levels of the algae in 15
    of 16 checkpoints, but the higher levels were found at the northern
    end of the county, said David Pouso, Sarasota healthy beaches
    coordinator. “(Red tide) started in the south and crept up,” Pouso
    said. “We hope to see lower levels in the coming
