Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox has developed a website (
www.stopasiancarp.com ) and is asking for your signature to put pressure on the powers in Washington D.C. to approve shutting down the canal system in Illinois to prevent the spread of the invasive  Asian Carp into the Great Lakes and eventually into the rivers of the state of Michigan (such as the Grand River, the St. Joseph river, the Detroit River, the Red Cedar river etc.).  Most of you have heard or read the testimonials from the biological experts who have stated if the carp make it into Lake Michigan it will devastate the fishing industry in the Great Lakes region and eventually do great harm to the tourism industry in this state as well as the other states which have shores on any of the Great Lakes.  

In December it was reported that DNA material from the Asian carp was found within 6 miles of Lake Michigan .  In today’s news (1/12/2010) more DNA material has been found within just a mile or two of the opening to Lake Michigan .

Cox is asking for all our help to go onto his site and electronically sign his petition to help put political pressure on Washington to take immediate action.  President Obama ran on a platform that he would be the “Great Lakes President” and was adamant that we could not allow invasive species, like the Asian Carp, into the Great Lakes .  But last week he announced he would not support the move to close the Illinois canal system.  He is facing political pressure from his home state of Illinois , the only Great Lakes state that is fighting the closure of the canal system.  Political pressure has to come to bear on Washington to change the Administration’s stance on this.

Would you look at the website listed above and if you are in agreement, electronically sign the petition?  Also, please forward this information to your friends, relatives and other contacts who live in Michigan .  Time is critical on this issue.  As Cox states on his website, once they get into Lake Michigan we won’t get a second chance to stop the devastation that will occur.
