Welcome to one of the Great Lakes region's first environmental issues blogs. The North American Great Lakes contain 18% of the world's available surface freshwater and are a source of beauty, spiritual renewal and livelihood. Keep track of Great Lakes news and comment or disagree politely to frequent posts.
This will go down as one of the lamer defenses of environmental agency inaction in Great Lakes history. Again, the Post-Tribune and reporter Gitte Laasby are to be commended for their dogged journalism on this one.
