I don't understand why they left this to last minute when it was tested in May and no one did anything about it. So really they shouldn't complain about it and rushing around to fix a problem they had ample time to do something about from the beginning.

It's good that people are still booking but also not good to hear that these businesses may need to layoff their workers. If I owned a business where it was affected cause of the algae I would call, write, and send letters to the person(s) who deal with that, not allow it to "it should go away before July 4th weekend" because it's been May since it started to cause issues and now, businesses are most likely going to struggle cause of that, it's not fair to those who are at risk for losing there jobs.

Would pumping water in those areas would actually change or make a difference? To me this is like an oil spill, they need to clean it up not pump water in hopes to rise the water levels.

Florida has tons of bad news all the time, to the point that it's actually considered a meme. I think some of it is spreading further because of recent events.

As far as the algae goes, I don't know enough of the science to know really what the best course of action would have been. However, I do know that Rick Scott is a shit lord who makes shitty decisions. While losing business is a very real concern, a lot of places are booked months in advance for 4th of July and I'm sure most of those people aren't going to cancel last minute.
