"Chesapeake Past, Chesapeake Future." Written by a diverse group of environmental researchers and scientists from around the region, the Chesapeake Futures Report takes a close look at the scientific, cultural and biological elements behind the Chesapeake Bay's decline over the past 25 years. The report paints a grim picture for the bay's future if little or nothing is done to amend current policy, sprawl and lifestyles within the watershed. The authors counter the bad news with recommendations on how to stem the spiraling effects pollutants and overfishing have had on the bay, once known as the world's most productive estuary.
