Hailed by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as 'a must read for anyone concerned about environmental protection,' this challenging book provides a wake-up call for those concerned about the future of the Chesapeake Bay and other endangered waterways around the globe. While blunt in his evaluation of past and present failures to restore the Bay, Ernst believes that there is still time to turn around the restoration effort and sets out new dark green strategies to do so.
