An alien creature invades a pristine environment. A green goop gobbles up a city's crown jewel. An unsuspecting populace braces for the inevitable. Sounds like a scenario for a horror movie. But it's also something straight out of one of America's mightiest rivers. In summer '05, a massive algae bloom, spiked with a dangerous toxin, covered Florida's St. Johns River for 100 miles.

And what happens if we do nothing? The Green Monster -- It Came From The River. Watch it. Then wish it was "only a movie." Written by
