You can see the bird tracks on this pond, from 350 feet above.
Chemical fertilizer running off from this neighborhood has killed the pond.
It hasn’t killed it but rather made it a place conducive to algae growth. This is what eutrophication looks like . Having said that, people do apply to much fertilizer to their lawns.
Too much nourishment and no easy way to run it off …
Run faster!!! Much faster. In fact just run at all because as that picture reveals the subject is not running. In fact there is doubt based on his body posture that he is even achieving a jog. But you gotta give him points for trying.
Yes, I don’t thing he would ever be disqualified in a racewalking competition. He could prove it’s physically impossible to become airborne long enough for to the human eye to detect.
An old Chinese saying “A journey of 1,000 miles begins with the first step. Or something like that.
At least that guy has made the first step. Whether there is a second, third and fourth step remains to be seen. I hope so for his sake.
True, it takes a lot of will power and it hurts to do what he’s doing. I know how it feels doing simple chin ups when I let myself go over my ideal weight.
The fish disagree.
declining oxygen due to increasing algae can cause significant harm
Great endorsement for fertilizer!!
This is what drives me nuts. By focusing exclusively on climate change, we get to conveniently ignore other serious ecological issues and misuse of our environment. I don’t think this is exclusive to the left either. I think that the neo left and neo right in government are currently the exact same people with the exact same goals and they get the rest of us to fight so that we don’t wake up to the fact.
You are pretty much spott on.
Neocon+Neolibs talk the same talk.
Obamacare was in fact Romneycare((written by the pharmalobby+))
They have the same opinion about ukraine
and when obama is for attacking Assad McCain goes to syria and makes some photos with terrorists
whatever the media says they’ll parrot.
Are you sure it’s bird tracks or could it possibly be the trails of a muskrat that’s swam through the pond? To me it looks more like the latter rather than the former because of both the width of the trail from 350′ elevation as well as the side-to-side surface disturbance whirls seen in the second photo. Or, possibly a mink …
Either way, I’ve seen this too many times myself in slow backwaters of my home state of Wisconsin, especially outflows downstream from a farming operation. It really is disgusting knowing how much runoff is taking place.
Yeah I was wondering if there are any farms nearby since this would seem to be one hell of a lot of fertilizer runoff from lawns. But maybe u yanks love ur fertilizer. In the great white north fertilizer is now sold with no phosphate and u need to be a farmer to get the good stuff with phosphate.
I’m seeing a very green playing field.
There is a muskrat living in that pond, or at least there used to be.
Nothing more than potential energy folks.
Any post with the word “folks” in it, goes directly to the mental bit bucket.
