E-M:/ RE: / Lake study says to leave the dead

Enviro-Mich message from "Wil Cwikiel" <wil@watershedcouncil.org>

Hello All,
Although the findings are relevant to Great Lakes systems, it is
important to note that this Wisconsin study focuses on the importance of
woody debris along the shorelines in inland lake systems. For those of
us who work on the protection and restoration if inland systems as well
as Great Lakes systems, the research being done in Wisconsin is some of
the best and most useful.
Also, let's be careful about pinning the SOS debacle on the Republicans.
Remember that the beach dooming bill was introduced by a Democrat in the
House, supported by the Democrats in the house and senate, and of
course, signed by Governor Granholm. And, by the way, the bill sitting
in congress that would change the Clean Water Act to mimic Michigan's
foolishness was introduced by a Democrat. 
Protecting the environment has always been a bi-partisan issue. In order
to keep it that way, we need to hold our elected officials accountable
for their actions--regardless of their political stripes.
Take Care,

	This is a Wisconsin article that directly relates to our
Republican SOS destruction of the Michigan Great Lakes shorelines. 
	Lake study says to leave the dead

	"A messy desk is a sign of productivity," or "Clutter is a sign
of a creative genius." Whether that's true for office desks is
debatable, but a team of researchers from the UW-Madison Trout Lake
Station is working to prove a comparable analogy in nature - that
"messy" lake shorelines with downed trees all along their rims are
nature's sign of productivity and creative genius.
