Very good read.
The saddest thing is that our governments don't appear to have learnt anything.. the writer also writes as if the Great Lakes belong to just them. This book would, could, should, be required reading for all members of government who deal with the watersheds and lakes. It would be of great benefit to us all.
This book, for me, was mind blowing. How about highschool students mandatory reading and discussion as well?
People need to remember that our environment is the most important issue when they vote this fall.
For a second consecutive year, President Donald Trump is trying to drastically reduce or eliminate federal support of cleanups for iconic U.S. waterways including the Great Lakes and Chesapeake Bay.
Trump’s proposed 2019 budget for the Environmental Protection Agency cuts funding by 90 percent for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative — an Obama-era plan for dealing with pervasive pollution in the world’s biggest surface freshwater system — and a similar program for Chesapeake Bay, the nation’s largest estuary.
Incredible story and wake up call to the challenges facing our water systems.
A 'Milwaukee Sentinel Journal' reporter with years covering the Great Lakes writes a readable history of unintended consequences that have spread invasive species into watersheds all over the country.
Egan brings history to life. Alewives, zebra mussels, Asiatic carp have all made and continue to make news. I’ve known of the infamous reversal of the Chicago River, but had not read of how it and the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway have had dire consequences for the Great Lakes and Mississippi River. So many conflicting priorities, so many consequences. Essential reading for Great Lakes lovers to gain more knowledge and perspective. Well done.
I had no idea of the ecological struggles within the waters of the Great Lakes. Shocking story
of invasive species and the destruction of an ecosystem.
Fascinating read. Could not put this book down.
