Asian Carp in Great Lakes

Seems very likely that Asian carp are now in the Great Lakes. By most accounts they will destroy the current eco-system. Why has this happened? Because Illinois refused to close the lock system to the lower rivers. Why? Money and very high level Chicago politics. Loopers will no doubt be pleased.

This will do almost as much damage long term as Chinese Gov hacking.

I have never doubted if it would happen, only when. As Laurel and Hardy would have put it "That's another fine mess you've gotten us into".
