Less Drinking Water In The Future?
Algal blooms could become more frequent in the future due to climate change... and that could actually lead to less drinkable water. More from WIRED: "LAST SUMMER, SOUTHERN Florida nearly ran out of water. It wasn’t drought—actually, the opposite. The state got way too much rain, which flushed nutrients from over-fertilized farms into its canals and reservoirs. All the extra food led to a massive algal bloom, a skim of blue-green slime that smells like rotten eggs and poisons humans. Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency in four counties."
