Unlike Ewya in Avatar, no one heard Okeechobee
Lake Okeechobee will be drained to send water to US Sugar
and the entire south of Florida to use as they please.
Never mind that the Lake is now at a level that sends shivers down
the spines of all concerned with the Wildlife that depends on it.
It matters not.
The South Florida Water Management District has made the decision.
One member on this Board is Trudi Williams who recently said that the
Florida Panther really does not need any further special protection.
See that story below in this Blog dated Jan. 31, 2011.
The Lake is gong to be drained by pumps and no one, it would seem,
cares about the extreme damage that this will cause the entire Ecosystem.
Money speaks louder than any other voice, always.
