Mysterious death of 500 fish in German lake blamed on urinating swimmers.
that’s a world-wide headline that resulted from urinating swimmers blamed for the death of 500 Carp (fish) in Northern Germany’s Eichbaum lake.
the cause of death was apparently (I refuse to use the word, evidently) increased phosphate and algae production that dropped oxygen-levels in the sizable lake. so, ironically, the fish died of asphyxiation. this essentially means water-breathing creatures drowned due to a lack of oxygen while submerged.
…that’s how my mind works. and, yes, I do, and often, feel quite lonely over here. rather along the lines of relative thinking, which follows the view of the Heterodox and the Authentic Life.
…talk about “global warming”.
this might really piss people off. but, the fish were only carp. so, there were a lot of dead carp floating around – which is better than a bunch other stuff floating around with the same letters, and numbers of letters, but in a different order.
all that said, I’ll circle-back to global warming. if one hundred swimmers in a lake can create that much phosphate, create algae, and upend an entire lakes ecosystem, what is happening around the rest of the planet?
and, this is why I prefer surfing in the ocean than boating on a lake.
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
