Cuando hablamos del impacto profundo del aumento del nivel del mar, Miami, Florida, es la zona cero en el país. Las mareas altas inundan sus calles, la playa de Miami Beach ha tenido que modificar sus sistemas de alcantarillado y drenaje, y un pulpo ocupó los titulares hace poco cuando apareció en un garaje inundado.

When it comes to watching the impact of sea level rise first-hand, low-lying Miami, Fla. is ground zero for the country. High tides swamp its streets, Miami Beach has had to modify its sewage and drainage systems, and an octopus recently grabbed headlines when it showed up in a flooded parking garage.

When it comes to green slime, the Florida state legislature has missed a critical point.

The Army Corps of Engineers recently announced that it is slowing down the massive water releases from Lake Okeechobee to the Caloosahatchee River.

For more than nine months, scientists have been taking samples at the river’s estuary and recording dead oysters, low salinities and the nasty algae that’s fueled by the sewage, manure and fertilizer runoff in the lake water. Seagrasses, which we know are the building blocks of the sport fishing and seafood industries, struggle to survive.
