“Everything You Need to Know about Toxic Algae Blooms” featured an interview with Don Anderson. The story, published in the Los Angeles Times on August 14, 2019, focused on toxic blooms of cyanobacteria and algae and the harmful effects associated with human and animal exposure. In oceans and freshwater lakes and streams, harmful algal blooms are becoming more frequent, driven in part by higher water temperatures. “We’re seeing that these problem organisms are changing the ranges in which they occur because of climate,” Anderson said. Here is a link to the story: https://www.latimes.com/environment/story/2019-08-14/everything-you-need-to-know-about-toxic-algae-blooms
