When it Comes to the Everglades, Everybody Has Their Own Agenda

The Everglades and Lake Okeechobee have been besieged for so long, that it is hard to remember a time when the very mention of their names, did not evoke passionate responses from all sides.
South Florida just wants the water, the developers just want the land and the cattle ranchers just want it all to stay the same.
The one party in this ongoing drama that rarely get asked for their opinion, are the wildlife, who are at the mercy of all of these warring factions.
Now, the Feds have come up with what they think is a great idea, but I guess that depends on whose side you are on.
This story reveals the Government in all its glory, just like the politicians and the lobbyists, their agenda is the best one and we should all just accept that.
In the end, who will profit, who will suffer?
Can you guess?
