How does Lewis propose to drain the lake? The Kissimmee River will still be flowing there.

I didn’t understand Dr Robinson was advocating draining the lake. I read it as highlighting the complexity of the problem.

That would be one heck of Band-Aid and it does absolutely nothing to address the cause.

There are too many humans polluting our nest people.

"Yes, drain Lake O, get rid of the polluted reservoir for blue-green algae" Pretty understandable to most rational readers without an agenda.

DOAkolov must have consulted some faith healer for that bit of idiocy. Typical thoughtlessness from an uninformed fool. Where would Miami and the rest of the East coast (the major generator of tax revenue) be without Lake O water supply? The entire economy of Florida is dependant on water, both salt and fresh, not to mention management of flood waters.

Like his Icon, DOAkolov obviously doesn’t read and is incurious. He prefers to go by gut feeling or rely on faith. I’ll give him this. It would head off the inevitable inundation from rising sea levels compliments of Global Warming.

Drought has a thinning effect on the population. It would give these Climate Refugees an early start.

Corporal mikey quote, "I didn’t understand Dr. Robinson was advocating draining the lake" Loopy Robinson Quote,"Yes, drain Lake O, get rid of the polluted reservoir for blue-green algae" Hello? Faith healer? for what? to translate your own words back to you, little mind... Faith based evidence corporal? Loopy said drain the lake..not me, boy. Pester him. Weird man, weird. What are you drooling about? You still haven't shown us your highly prized "evidence based facts" garbage concerning your quote, "All Republicans are Russian spies and racists" Can't u find another paper to haunt with your sick daily poison? THANKFULLY kicked off our local FM radio & the News Press for your low class obnoxious rudeness, sadly finding a home here, still broadcasting your hate from the hills of Tennessee. Somebody pass me a giant can of long distance Raid.
