Pretty unsettling news out of Michigan this morning on the Asian Carp front. The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the request by the state of Michigan backed by five-states (plus Ontario) to force the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the state of Illinois and Metropolitan Water District of Greater Chicago to close the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, which would ultimately form a barrier between the Great Lakes and the infested waters of the Illinois River. Asian Carp would wreak complete havoc on the Great Lakes ecosystems. More of the story on asian carp here and here and here
