    Really liked the video. Go to the Saúde Mental of Ricardo Spinoza that brings information about aspects connected to the mind. The idea is to cover since issues such as depression to issues such as increased intelligence and nootrópricos the Link is this – There the public can give their opinions and discuss in the comments to take questions and obnter more information.

    Oil drilling in the everglades? Forget it! Who will be able to stop the greedy farmers and oil tycoons?

    I would appreciate it if Everglades Trust would remove the lies from their ads. 75% of the people who voted for Amendment 1 did NOT vote to immediately fund the everglades project. They voted for taking steps to remove sources of pollution from lakes and streams across the state.
    At that, those in the state senate who advocated this amendment were not truthful in their campaign. Senator Simmons (my senator) told us where the funds would be taken from but we could not find out what would not be funded due to the scalping of the doc stamp money.
    Additionally, if the 33% of the states population wants this purchase so badly, it would be an excellent idea if the Everglades Trust used the money from the false advertising to do a huge fund raiser and fork up 33% of the amount needed to purchase the desired property rather than bilking 66% of the residents for the purchase.

    @brandon Jackman. Pollution does indeed come from north of the Lake (where cattle farming is prominent) and surrounding areas, but until recently backpumping was allowed into the Lake (these things build up over time) and it is now limited, not completely stopped. But yes, most of the farm runoff is sent into the Everglades and causes havoc to the ecosystem. Everything works together so conserving just one part won’t help, we need to work on the entire system. Sorry if my previous post seemed hostile.

    I understand how the aquifer is recharged but to me the tv commercial is a little misleading with “saving the drinking water”. Also, what else is misleading, as I stated in my other comment, is the statement that polluted water comes from lands south of the lake. That is simply not true! No, water from ag lands on the south side of the lake flow into the lake.

    @brandon Jackman. The aquifer is continually fed by waters flowing south through the Everglades (which helps to clean water) for South Florida, perhaps you really must check your own understanding of science and how aquifers work. We need the land to hold and “clean” the polluted waters before sending it through the Everglades. We screwed an entire ecosystem we didn’t understand. We now have a responsibility to preserve and restore it before we lose and, or harm even more, the communities and property you care so much about. CERP is absolutely based on science and has already been working to help restore parts of the Everglades.

    @audrey Stehr. You really missed the whole point of why we need this land free for water to flow south to the Everglades, we never should have prevented that water from flowing southward in the first place. That land is and can be used to filter water through the Everglades again. The government of Florida has neglected its duties and cut funds to the act. They are once again going against the law and their responsibilities. It doesn’t matter if land is unused by humans, that’s the whole point.

    Firs,t off I am for protecting the Everglades based on sound science that doesn’t negatively effect communities or private property. Next, Where have you gotten your info? The Lake isn’t polluted with water from south of it, all water that flows into the Lake comes down from the Orlando area. The cities and theme parks contribute for most of the pollutants in the Lake. No, water from south of the Lake is allowed to flow into the Lake. Your tv commercial is based on saving our drinking water. Whose drinking water are we saving? I believe most of the Ft. Myers area and other areas get their water out of the aquifer not out of the Lake or River with the exception of the communities directly on the Lake like Clewiston. Which will be destroyed if US Sugar quits supplying jobs that fuel their local economy. I believe in helping the environment but not based on lies and agendas.

    I thought a number of sugar farms south of lake okeechobee was bought up around 10 years ago and never used…now you want to waste money owing it again

    Your ad on TV Does Not indicate to the general public that our present legislators are against the purchase of the land and the general public Must Notify them that they have a responsibility to the taxpayer to purchase the land and protect our water. REDO YOUR AD.
