Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 22, 2021

The Sunshine City and its sparkling waterfront parks have become the center of Tampa Bay's Red Tide crisis. Rafts of dead fish are washing ashore more quickly than crews can gather the carcasses. Workers have picked up 477 tons of dead marine life from the coastline in recent weeks, according to Mayor Rick Kriseman. That accounts for the overwhelming majority of more than 600 tons picked up across Pinellas County. Scientists continue to detect high levels of Red Tide through much of the bay, with no sign of immediate relief on the horizon.

Ahhh Beautiful Tampa Bay.

Looks like I got out at just the right time. It sucks because I always thought I would retire there once all the idiot old Repubs died off, but it's just a magnet for younger, and more idiotic Repubs.

Happy extinction Florida!

Florida has 25 years before sea level rise starts really
making itself felt. Global Warming will be the fight of
our and our children's lifetimes. And corporations MUST
be held responsible.

I wonder if "c-c-conservative" governance will take credit for their achievement?

Also, nice to see in some ways were no better than China ...

Are the scientists sure the red tide wasn't caused by the jewish space lasers?

One part of Florida I have not lived in but I have a sister who does so I have visited quite often. This is a shame, if that company did dump this waste which caused this they should be bankrupted paying for the damages.

If I remember the piney point story accurately, the company already went bankrupt and so the lands are under state care :/
