It’s that time of year. Nothing arouses more hope than
the first hours of a diet. And we are hopeful that EPA’s
new pollution diet (page 10) will give the Bay states the
resolve to foster the Chesapeake back to health.
Our 2010 State of the Bay report (page 12) provides
encouragement that we are starting off with some positive momentum. And, the energy doesn’t stop there.
The economic argument for cleaning up the the Bay
(page 19) shows us that the cost of saving the Bay truly
is worth the investment. In fact, the advent of oyster
aquaculture (page 27) is allowing some watermen to
make a better living. And, even a coal miner can see the
long-term financial benefits of clean energy (page 30).
It’s time to make some changes. Here’s to a healthy future
for us and the Bay.
Consider the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as a beneficiary in your estate plans.
