I was listening to Garage Logic yesterday and the Lake Detective said that this is a natural occurance yet the "media" seems to want to blame this on our use of the lake. Typical of the left, anything that is unknown or different is blamed on Humans. Actually, the sludge is a fungal type thing that grows on the bottom of the lake. It grows every year in about 15 feet of water at the edge of the weedline. It can cover acres of the bottom of the lake. Sometimes when it gets hot and a wind kicks up, chunks of it will float to the surface and slowly decompose. That is what they are going through now. It is natural and has been happening for thousands of years, yet all the news reports on the radio and articles in the press related to this paint a picture of a lake gone bad because of human intervention. It is the typical doom and gloom, we are all gonna die, the sky is falling, let's place plants and animals above humans, etc. type of people that will be the downfall of us all.

Just goes to show you that you can't always believe what you read...

I think they need to ask themselves if the lake is at it's lowest point in generations due to the low rainfall? I've noticed (ok, so its' a river instead) the st. louis river being down at least a foot below normal, probably more, that the weed cover is disappearing earlier than it normally does.

If they're that worried about it though, why didn't the article say the DNR scooped some of the "sludge" and tested it to identify? Obviously they've done a water sample because it didn't mention the lake or beaches being closed.
