state of the Great Lakes

wjames - January 11, 2009

Hi fellow members:

The Jan 3 issue of The Economist:

http://www.economist.com/printedition/index.cfm?d=20090103

has published quite a worrying Special report on the sea. Also published are comments by readers, some of which quickly hone in on global “popullution” problems.

I think the piece is relevant to but does not specifically cover our Great Lakes, and I draw the report to your attention for its intrinsic interest.

In case the ostensible deterioration of our global and local sailing environment is a legitimate concern of our club, I checked our website and by-laws and drew a blank. Do we as a club we have an established position and/or process for dealing with ecosystem issues?

Thanks
