As summer arrives, debate over Jet Skis rages on

(CNN) -- The personal-watercraft battle is being fought in and out of the water.

Environmentalists long have considered personal watercraft -- often called Jet Skis, the brand name of a Kawasaki model -- to be a nuisance because of noise and pollution that accompany their use. Some national parks have banned the craft from their waters, and other parks are prepared to follow.

CNN's Bruce Burkhardt examines the noisy debate.
