The Darkness Keeps Up the Fight - Algae Blooms Continue to Spread
Monitor reporters have learned that the Darkness of Dumbness is furious
with his Clouds of Chaos. The Darkness had expected the planet to plunge
deep into a Climate Crisis that it wouldn't be able to dig out of. The Climate
Crisis continues, but thanks to the Idea Seekers and Allies participating in
King Daveau's Team Challenge Expeditions 6, 7 and 8, the situation is far from
of the fight against the Darkness have begun to take hold. Everyone on the
planet is paying attention to the lessons being taught to them by Idea Seekers
and Allies and learning how extra carbon dioxide in the atmosphere gets into
the oceans as well. Pleethars are driving their cars less, choosing to walk or
bike when they can. Sales of appliances with the Energy Star label have
increased, and people are taking shorter showers in order to use less hot
response, the Darkness is reportedly demanding that Sloth Cloud and Proud
Cloud double their efforts to convert Warrior Drones by convincing people
that the new lessons they are learning about energy efficiency don't really
make a difference. Despite news from the planet's scientists that these energy-saving
techniques are working, they continue to infect anyone who will listen with
Cloud Sickness, so it's important to keep up the fight. Be sure to keep
checking the Planet Status page to see how clouded thinking continues to affect the environment.
Algae Blooms Increasing in Number
Algae Blooms continue their spread through Sarillion's oceans. These large
concentrations of Algae look like a giant green cloud in Sarillion's oceans.
Some suspect that the Darkness is determined to keep the Algae Blooms growing
because they remind him of his Clouds of Chaos! The Darkness would like nothing
better than for every photo taken of the planet Sarillion to have a slimy green
reminder of how powerful his Clouds are.
Keep Playing the Team Challenge!
Idea Seeker Reminder Princess Kimma is urging Idea Seekers and Allies to continue
playing Expeditions 6, 7 and 8 of the Team Challenge. This week she is
stressing that members of Idea Seeker Teams remind their Team Fans to keep
playing the Expeditions as well, because when they earn Team Points, they are
added to the Team's overall score. Each step in the expeditions can be played
three times per day, so just because you've completed a step already doesn't
mean it can't be re-played. We all need to be constantly reminded of ways to
help reduce CO2 emissions, and repeating things we've learned already is the
best way to remember them. And be sure to keep your Plant Babies powered up,
and to keep using Dumonde's Gadget Maker to develop new Algae Bloom
Trackers! Check out last week's Monitor for a reminder of what an Algae Bloom
Tracker is and why it's important.
