(WFLA) -- SARASOTA, Fla. -- Erin Brockovich is putting Florida's elected officials on blast over recent algae blooms that are killing off marine life and causing respiratory issues on the state's southwest coast.
The environmental activist has posted several times over the past week about what many are calling an environmental crisis in South Florida. In a post on Tuesday, Brockovich called for Governor Scott and all elected officials in the state to take action.
"What are you doing? What are you thinking? Are you just really going to stand by and stand down and watch this destruction?" she wrote. "You cowards! People are sick! The ecosystem, the marine life is dying! Do your damn jobs and get off your a** and help your people, your state, our environment. This is so wrong, at every level, that there are no words to describe it!"
