A 3,800-square-mile algae bloom in the Pacific Ocean off Canada's British Columbia has been traced to a California businessman who promised a local tribe he could help their salmon runs by fertilizing the ocean with iron.

WTF??? Seriously,WTF!!!??? This is out of a bad Clive Cussler book....I guess money talks...or buys complicity and silence....So much for "First Nation" care for the ecology, I guess we're all "whitey oppressors " under the skin.....I'm not surprized if the BC govt. knew about this;they smile and give head to anyone that lines their pockets..........
