The Great Lakes Are In Trouble
"The Great Lakes, it's safe to say, are in trouble. Residents of Illinois or Michigan or New York don't have to worry about disappearing fish or shorelines anytime soon, but in ecological terms, the lakes have been deteriorating rapidly: invasive species, toxic waste, development, sewage, pollution from agriculture and industry have all been taking a toll.
In response, officials launched a collaborative restoration effort this month that is unprecedented in its scale and bureaucratic complexity."
