COMMENTS: Yacht Obstacle Race
NBC may have chosen a double-barreled kick-off on the California wildfires with George Lewis near Santa Barbara and Mara Schiavocampo in Shasta County but Nature Gone Wild in the Yellow Sea made for yet more startling visuals. The Yellow Sea has turned green, carpeted by a massive algae bloom in the city of Qingdao--that is Tsingtao for us beer drinkers. The algae is newsworthy because it is clogging the course for the sailing competition in next month's Beijing Olympics. Thousands of volunteers are working by hand to clean up the green glup. NBC's Mark Mullen and ABC's Stephanie Sy (embargoed link) tagged along to document their efforts.
