Meanwhile in Qingdao, China...

Massive Green Algae Invasion in Qingdao China

Via The Telegraph Friday, July 5, 2013

A massive green algae invasion has landed in Qingdao and other seaside areas in Eastern China. The algae is reported to not be toxic to humans or damaging to water quality. But, apparently, it really stinks! Here is a BBC News video on this largest-ever swarm of the harmless "sea lettuce":

  1. The BBC should have reported that this is caused by excessive agricultural fertilizer runoff into the tributaries up river. Also while this algae may not be toxic to humans, it is to animals and pets. In Shanghai, they still have thousands of dead pigs in the rivers along with this algae assault. Ever heard of the upcoming "future water wars"? Google it.
