Boracay's environmental woes
MetadataShow full item record
Some dimwits online and elsewhere are trying to make light of Boracay Island’s environmental problems by spewing fallacies. One hilarious fallacy or lie is that lumot or green algae that bloom in the island’s shoreline are a good indication and essential to the beach area because it is the main source of the famed white sand. What?! Any kid in elementary or high school will tell these dimwits that lumot or green algae serve as food for marine life and an indicator of ecological balance or the lack of it.
