There's a huge swath of water moving through the Gulf of Mexico that's devoid of oxygen. It's known affectionately as The Dead Zone. Monica Bruckner created a great site to explain how we continue to find new ways to kill everything -- oh I mean a great site about dead zone causes (think fertilizer) and results (think suffocated fish).
The Gulf of Mexico Dead Zone is an annual event and this year it's bigger than last. How lovely. Are we really ok with this? Really?
