Trust Everglades Trust

For decades, pollution has been pouring into Lake Okeechobee from multiple directions, including the south. We have to stop it from heading east and west. The Everglades and Florida Bay (The Keys) desperately need this water - cleansed and plentiful - heading south.

There is a solution. Buy the land in the EAA. Build the reservoir. Stop the discharges east and west. Restore the flow of clean, fresh water into the Everglades and get it down to a starving Florida Bay. That is the undisputed environmental science of the Everglades.

There is the political science of the Everglades, too. This is what Everglades Trust is all about. We inform you when trust is broken by politicians not focused on the critical issues of the collapsing Everglades. We hold them accountable. We won't stop. We won't back down. Message to our elected officials: No more excuses. Just fix it.

    THE EVERGLADES FOUNDATION: The Everglades and King Tides

    THE EVERGLADES FOUNDATION: October 14, 2016. Written by Stephen Davis, Ph.D., and Edyna Garcia. This year’s arrival of the King Tide generated quite a bit of traction due to the impressive flooding seen in low-lying areas of South Florida. If you were to login to Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and search the hashtag #KingTide, you would find photos and videos of “sunny day flooding” of seawalls, docks, yards and streets. Impacts to developed areas from King Tide flooding are readily observable and of great concern for many municipalities across South Florida. What is less apparent are the impacts of King Tides on the Everglades and the growing need for Everglades restoration. In order to understand King Tides, we need to take it back to 8th grade Science class, as the connection between the moon, sun, and ocean is fundamental to understanding the growing contribution of sea level rise on King Tide-induced coastal flooding. The short of it is that tides and oceans are much more complex than we think! Continue reading "The Everglades and King Tides"

    OCALA STAR BANNER: Joe Henderson: Environment top issue in gov's race

    OCALA STAR BANNER: October 16, 2016. Written by Joe Henderson (Editorial). I think we have one of our first major campaign issues for the 2018 race to succeed Rick Scott as Florida’s governor. Any serious candidate who doesn’t come out strongly in favor of beefing up the state Department of Environmental Protection will miss a great opportunity. In just the last couple of months alone, an understaffed and likely overwhelmed DEP has had to deal with the algae bloom that threatened to trash summer tourism in Stuart and surrounding areas. Recriminations are still flying back and forth in the sewage overflow in St. Petersburg and the surrounding area in the aftermath of Hurricane Hermine. DEP was called in to investigate.
