  •  Great diary; fresh water our greatest asset (15+ / 0-)

    The health of the Great Lakes are ignored at great peril to our country. I don't think many people realize the uniqueness of the water itself as a resource to this country -- we have the largest reserve of fresh water in the world, and in the 21st century, that's going to be the world's largest reserve of wealth. We've already, as outlined so well in this diary, squandered so much of the bounty of the lakes, and we damn well better get much smarter about managing the waters if we're going to retain the benefit of the clean supply of water (which itself depends on the lakes' natural biosystem to keep the waters clean and balanced chemically).

    Thanks for this diary.
