Watching the deadly spread of red tide on the west coast of Florida you can see it as emblematic of what people’s heedlessness can do to our only inhabitable planet.  It’s bad for us and the all the other living things that cannot prevent people’s destructiveness.

“Red tide is a natural occurrence that has been reported in Florida as far back as the 1800s. Warmer temperatures and nutrient pollution from agricultural and urban runoff are blamed for the severity of this year’s bloom.”

Dying are many fish species, sharks, sea turtles, dolphins and the already endangered manatee.
