Environmental News for Florida; the last 30 days

 

This Florida News briefing made possible from the sale of Green License Plates and EarthRehab

 

Florida has been a hot spot for Environmental News over the last 30 days. I would like to highlight and link to a few great moments.

 

June 24, 2008– Governor Crist tells US Sugar to pack their bags and buys back a section of the “River of Grass.”

The Sugar Deal

 

July 7-11, 2008- To kick off the 11th International Coral Reef Symposium, Governor Charlie Crist signed a bill to close all of the sewage pipes that pump 300 million gallons of untreated sewage into the Atlantic Gulf-stream. Ed Tichenor and Reef Rescue of the Palm Beaches get the hard won victory and credit.

The Sewage Deal

 

July 16, 2008– Surfrider Foundation and the City of Lake Worth join in a lawsuit to stop the useless Dredge and Fill projects that suffocate the Reefs.

The Dredge Lawsuit

 

July 16, 2008– Ciguatera Outbreak, 5 cases reported in Florida. Ciguatera is a disease caused when you eat reef fish that have consumed Harmful Algae Blooms.

The Ciguatera Outbreak

 

July 17, 2008- EarthJustice files a lawsuit for Clean Water Act enforcement in Florida vs. Harmful Algae Blooms.

How important is this to you? Marine life including, turtles, Sharks, Tropical fish, Coral, Hurricane Sustainable wall, whales, dolphins, Etc. (not to mention our children and families that enjoy to swim in the Oceans).
