CNN recently broadcast a compelling news program that describes how EPA’s plan to save the Chesapeake Bay is being jeopardized by agricultural industry lobbyists and other special interest groups that have challenged new pollution limits in court and Congress.
Check it out by clicking here or above. The video features CBF President Will Baker and EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, who make powerful cases for upholding the new Bay pollution limits and state blueprints for meeting those limits.
Jackson tells CNN that some progress has been made in cleaning the nation’s largest estuary, but not enough. “Now is not the time to quit,” Jackson said. “We are so close to actually turning the corner, but it’s going to require all of us…to keep contributing our share.”
Watch the video and then share it with your Facebook friends and others.
