Staff quoted: UMCES
Article Link Permanent Link

Some things apparently don't get better with age. On the eve of the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Chesapeake Bay restoration effort, a group of scientists, "policy wonks" and activists warned that the bay is getting worse, not better, and needs a new, more aggressive commitment to cleaning it up. I wrote a story about it in The Baltimore Sun.

Article Link Permanent Link

At this point it surprises no one to declare that, "after 25 years of effort, the formal (Chesapeake) Bay Program and the restoration efforts under the voluntary, collaborative approach currently in place have not worked. … (In) the face of significant population growth and expanding development, these efforts have been insufficient and are failing. Water quality is declining or not improving in much of the bay and its rivers, and living resources continue to decline."

If the Chesapeake Bay could be resuscitated by talking it back to life, it would be thriving by now, and the region's governors would be heroes. But, so far as we know, pollution has yet to be licked by political rhetoric.
