    Your website recommends; get involved. Are you able to make any endorsements for the Nov. 6, 2018 elections?

    This is great content. My background is in Chemical Engineering. I think there are some other industries at play that affect the ecosystem. Please look into Mosaic, a company that mines for phosphate in Florida. I believe the mined phosphate may be getting into the water supplies. Phosphate is a food source for algae. Also, the mining destroys those areas and is a nonrenewable resource.

    One terrifying theory as to what’s really is happening in Florida.

    One terrifying theory as to what’s really is happening in Florida.


    (Editor’s Note: This story was taken from David Letellier’s public Facebook page and has been cited below, his Facebook page is also linked below.)


    “My sister and I were both raised in South Florida and we love our State. We have come up with a hypothetical theory that creates a perfect storm for this recent ecological disaster… Florida is going to be used to create future oil fields right under our feet. Deep injection wells are already pumping untreated sewage and Ag waste water 3,000 feet below our fresh water aquifer into the bedrock for making biofuels/alcohol, that they can pump out of the ground at a later date use to make gasoline, diesel fuel and natural gas to sell on the world markets.


    To make alcohol you need lots of water, a mash or organic material (human sewage, Ag waste, even dead sea animals), sugar which is grown right at Ground Zero and the starter or (yeast) which is the Cyanobacteria or (blue/green algae) made by Argenol in Ft. Myers. They want to start processing and pumping the Cyanobacteria into the ground at the north of Lake Okeechobee where they can hold it in the bedrock. It will be just like brewing a huge batch of whiskey/alcohol but in just a fraction of the time that the Earth needs to make oil.


    The north end of Lake O is where we believe they had their first major spill of this super- algae Cyanobacteria. The State of Florida was in the process of drilling 50 deep injection wells to contain it but they somehow lost control of it and had to dump and pump this toxic crap into the rivers on the top of the lake to the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico simply to get rid of it. The starter stew they created from the Cyanobacteria was so toxic that it killed every fish, turtle, bird, dolphin and manatee that came into contact with it. They’ve been using the annual Red Tide event as a cover to blame this hazardous spill on a (naturally occurring event). It all adds up to a big money involvement and I’m sure anyone (politicians included) connected with it are keeping it super secret which also explains the news blackout.


    The Mosaic sinkhole which happened in May, 2017 was filled with grout to seal it up but where did those 215 million of gallons of toxic stew go? I believe this toxic water has had a chance to migrate underground through the aquifer and come up at the heads of the Peace and Myakka rivers which also ends up flowing into the Gulf of Mexico.


    If you follow the money and the stench, it should lead to the answers explaining everything. Remember to vote tomorrow (Tuesday, August 28th) for environmentally friendly political candidates.”

    I’m saddened and surprised to see Andrew Gillum is not on your list. Your recommendation

    should not be based on ‘water’ along. I have fought for Everglades restoration and preservation for 30 years. I was a volunteer driver for Margory Stoneman Douglas whenever

    she was going to NPR in Miami. And now, I am fighting for Andrew Gillum. And I am

    equally saddened that Philip Levine is on your list. I wish you had been a resident

    of Miami Beach when he was Mayor.

    Hello ,

    I would like to give a donation but on your website, you don’t accept PayPal ???

    I don’t feel safe giving my credit card information over the internet and I’m sure that I’m not the only one. I think you should consider making an update to your website to make air easier to donate. I love your cause.

    Kindly,

    Mihaela

    Whatever became of your letter to governor Rick Scott dated July 16, 2016, regarding the purchase of land south of Okeechobee? I understand that prior to that date Governor Scott was against the land purchase. I have been a supporter of his run for senate, but do not wish to do so anymore if he has been against the purchase of this land. If he had acted early on we might not be in the predicament we are now. It is heartbreaking. Thank you

    I am writing to you for more clarification of your position to endorse Gwen Graham. My confusion is a result of how you arrived at this decision in view of her family’s involvement in the Mega Mall. Ms. Graham has not really provided a satisfactory answer. She has been a strong advocate of the environment, I agree, up until now where she stands to benefit financially from a destruction of 197 acres of wetlands. She has indicated that she will recuse herself and her investments are in blind trust but the expected millions of dollars that the family stands to gain will still find its way into her blind trust.

    How does Everglades Trust reconcile this conflict in view of your endorsement??

    Are you really endorsing Gwen Graham? If so-why? Do you know she is part of a corporation building what is advertised as the Largest Amusement Park in the world- in the Everglades? The water is for 8,000,000 Floridians- not to mention what it will do to the Wildlife.When asked about how she thinks this would be environmentally safe-her answer was “I have to check into that”.

    Your organization must be commended for the outstanding work done informing the myopic Floridians of the current state of affairs affecting their health and the River of Grass. How little would be known statewide if you and “bullsugar.org” had not sounded the alarm of the catastrophic events taking place from Orlando south. How sad the State and City Politicians remain unconcerned and voiceless as are ALL Businesses. Thank you for having 💖

    I have to question. Why do we need to purchase more land to hold more toxins? Why can’t we STOP the chemicals that are causing the destruction? More lakes to hold more poison is insanity. I will not support this plan. Stopping the refineries from using these chemicals in our state is the only way to save the Everglades and our waterways. Buy making more holding tanks for these toxins is simply inviting the refineries to continue using them. It’s disgusting and criminal.

    I don’t understand this article. How can you say you like all five democratic candidates if Mr. Gilium will not commit? Why did Gwen Graham take money and then return it; was the receipt a mistake or did she have a change of heart? Please clarify. This is an important issue and I want to cast my vote for the candidate most likely to turn this around.

    I want to write an article about protecting and cleaning the water inputs to Lake Okeechobee, Everglades, and the Indian River Lagoon.


    Can you give information about what Senator Nelson has done for Florida’s water bodies?


    I also am gathering information about the programs that Gov Scott has stopped and staffed with non-environmental people. I want to get dollar amounts about the money he took away from Florida Forever, Amendment 1, and other Everglades programs. I am also getting information about the Land purchase for Everglades cleanup from Big Sugar that Gov Scott cancelled.


    I do not want to see Gov Scott in any more Government offices.

    May I ask my FB water and algae FB readers to tell me any answers you have to this question from Dr Ney a published chemist who ask me these questions for which I someway sometimes find answers.

    To: Leonard Wheeler

    From: Ronald E. Ney, Jr., Advocate for Validated Science

    Subject: Phosphate in fertilizer and feces; and nitrates and nitrites

    I have asked the following of FDEP, FDACS, many in UF, The Scotts Company LLC, Fertilizer Association, Sugar Cane Growers CO-OP FL, USDA, USEPA, USGS, American Society for Microbiology and many agriculture universities and others and it is amazing that no one to date can answer my questions but some referred me to search the internet which I have and got no answers except what I already knew. Maybe you can provide me with answers. They appear to have no idea what phosphate compounds caused the algae bloom if they even cause the algae bloom and one would think they would want to know.

    What is the chemical formula and chemical names of phosphate ionic compounds found in animal feces, sewage and non-manure fertilizer?

    ALSO: Fertilizers can contain phosphate as P2O5 (P4O10), phosphorus pentoxide a dehydrating agent and hydrolysis to P4O10 + 6 H2O → 4 H3PO4.

    Does phosphoric acid degrade in the environment and if so to what?

    My (OUR )question is when phosphorus pentoxide is applied to soil what are its degradation products, the final product and this also applies to water. Is the final product degraded by microbes (aerobic and/or anaerobic) and if so to what?

    Nitrates and nitrites in fecal matter, sewage and in fertilizer can be transformed into N-nitrosamines which are carcinogens and this never mentioned, why? Please email me studies on this.

    A few days back I followed your directions and phoned Gov. Scott’ s office. I left a message with an aide saying he should make sure the reservoir is larger and enough to clean much of the current polluted water. I was told he’d get the message.
