The Chesapeake Bay cleanup has foundered on the shoal of good intentions. Bold promises were made, but it's not happening.
What's wrong? Lack of political will, an unwillingness to change...basically people don't care enough to do the job right.
This is a sad story for a clean up effort that was supposed to be a national model and an inspiration to those of us hoping to see improvements in Puget Sound.
Is there still hope for the Chesapeake? Yes, so long as there are brave activists and watermen left alive. Read about the bay and become a supporter of restoration, because what we do to the bay we do to ourselves.
