Friday, August 27, 2010
During this hot summer of 2010, algae warnings have been posted along several western Lake Erie beaches -- believed to be the first such warnings since the 1970s. What is causing the massive algae blooms? What other environmental issues are in the news this summer?
David Baker, founding director of Heidelberg University's National Center for Water Quality Research, Gary Silverman, Program Director for the Environmental Health and Sustainability Programs at Bowling Green State University, and Tom Henry, staff writer for The Blade, are this week's guests on Deadline NOW.
