2 Responses to Saving the Salton Sea, one field of algae at a time

    The Salton Sea is an interesting issue. It’s not natural, but was made when a man-made aqueduct burst almost a hundred years ago. It also adds humidity to the surrounding desert’s 120 degree summer temps. If you’ve never been there in the summer, ask the prisoners at nearby Calipatria State Prison how that is.

    So is the Salton Sea a habitat that should be saved, or is it a man-made aberration that should be allowed to disappear?
