July 2, 2008 Leave a comment
The legendary Swamp Thing finds himself on the run after fomenting rebellion amongst algae colonies off the coast of Qingdao, China.
According to this story from the BBC, “Algae invade China Olympic venue”, Qingdao is to host the sailing events for the upcoming Summer Olympics in China.
To get the venue ready in time a massive number of people (10,000) have been put to work in the clean-up of the more than 5,000 sq. miles of scum.
This from the article,
Coastal areas and lakes in China see frequent algae blooms, often caused by the discharge of nitrogen-rich chemical pollutants, sewage and fertilisers in the water.
