Most of the developed world deserves an F. We need to find ways of living with the planet and not destroying the world with have to live with.

Shocking lack of action!

When is the government going to crack down on dumping and making our waterways unhealthy. Our bays, our oceans, all full of waste, deadly waste. Instead of wasting money on wars in countries who have no part in our free world, use money to clean up America, not help, byy warring, in some Middleeastern nation who has been in 1 war or anohter since Christ.

Scares me cause my oldest daughter moved to the Chesepeake Bay area due to a job change.

Come on Maryland. Tell your environmental people to get with the program and fix this mess.

As a Maryland resident, it both saddens and infuriates me to see that the Bay is in the shape it's in and worse, that there's so little that people are doing to change that. I live in Washington County, which is the easternmost county in the Western Maryland region, and many people up here flat-out refuse to accept that we are just as much a part of the Chesapeake Bay watershed and our actions DO impact the Bay!

We humans are legally and morally obligated to clean up our act-literally.
