The amount of human waste gunking up the water in San Francisco is thought to be one of the primary triggers for a massive stinking algae bloom that's killing off all the fish.

Just letting you know, in case the Golden Gate bridge was on your vacation list.

You might want to avoid Nancy Pelosi's home base until the sludge clears up - although it's hard to know when that will be, given the toxic dump that is this Northern California bastion of leftist glory. According to the Blaze, the algae bloom was first discovered in July after thousands of dead fish started washing up on the shoreline. On top of being deadly to fish - and incredibly unsightly and smelly, to boot - the algae is also problematic for people, and contact with it can "cause skin irritation and burning eyes to humans and can cause more dangerous effects to dogs," according to the Alameda County Public Health Department.

It's said to be the worst algae bloom in more than a decade, with residents saying they can literally see the sludge as they drive across the bridge and look down into the water.

Of course, the leftists who run the city - also known for the piles of human poop and used syringes that litter the local streets - are blaming the algae bloom on "climate change." Because, reasons.

But experts say another major contributing factor is the dozens of plants that dump about 80 million gallons of treated human waste into the Bay every single day.

Eileen White, the executive officer of the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board, explained, "When you flush the toilet every day, you're flushing nutrients down." When those nutrients - namely nitrogen - get pumped into the Bay, it feeds the algae, causing it to bloom out of control.

To mitigate this problem, The Blaze reports that the regional water board plans to upgrade its treatment facilities to curb nutrient dumps - to the tune of about $14 billion, the cost of which will almost certainly filter into residents' water bills.
