Interesting, but not very informative. What were the findings??? This is like reporting a car wreck, with no other information as to who, where, why and when.

With all of the dangerous emissions being put in the air, why are we worried about small dairy farms?

Let's get rid of all the dairy cows and find a country where we can import milk. Before the United States will not produce anything. Solve this problem by getting rid of the EPA.

I'm sure malfeasance on the part of RWSA's waste water treatment system has a much more worse effect effect on the bay than a bunch of cows over the mountains.

Yea, we don't need regulations. Let's be like China. They can do whatever they want. Put melamine (poisonous to humans) in the milk to allegedly give it more protein. If a bunch of infants and kids die, so what?

Look, this country is replete with examples of why we need rules and regulations. The problems facing dairy farmers have to do with the dairy aggregators like Dean Foods, not with the EPA. But you blowhards just repeat whatever the Republican corporados tell you to. So the CEO of DEAN foods keeps getting MILLIONS while dairy farmers struggle to make ends meet. And you all just keep repeating the broken record like zombies: "it's the environmentalists, it's the EPA, it's liberals." The farms get bigger, small dairies are out competed and Dean Foods grows.

A word of advice: If you don't know what you're talking about, keep your comments to yourself.

Name calling, love it. First I do my research and make my own decisions. Second, I am very capable of choosing one brand over another and I do not need any government agency to tell me one product is better for me or one product is bad for me. I can choose. With a free market the "bad" companies will eventually close down and the better products will survive. Now tell me again how a cow in the Shenandoah valley can harm the Chesapeake bay? Guess we will have to get rid of the deer next.

Dairy farmers are in a paradoxical economical cycle they themselves created trying to maximize their per cow production with increased feed intake. How ever the Obama administration was directly responsible for increases in ethanol for fuel which drove the cost of feed up by a factor of two. Ethanol is one of the worst environmental threats since it depletes the land and there is nothing left to replenish it when food production is needed. To make matters worse the price of food also increases.

As far as the Bay; it is well on its way to becoming healthier. This past spring a large fish kill occurred in the bay, reason; too clean/ healthy the fish over populated then starved. Now for political input Obama was not responsible for the cleaning up of the bay but he is responsible for curtailing several programs to assist farmers in keeping manure out of the waterways through rain water runoff controls and fencing out streams.

So now what are the facts?

Perhaps the EPA should investigate the contribution to Chesapeake Bay nutrients provided by ChemLawn via the storm drains? How much does that corporation, along with Dean Foods "contribute" bribes to both political parties?
How about if Congressional representatives face charges of treason when they abdicate their responsibility to represent their constituents and instead represent the will of corporate lobbyists who in many cases actually write the laws that are passed in Congress? Similarly, agency officials who represent the will of former and future employers deserve the same. It is traditional to punish treason with a firing squad, there would be a lot of mid term replacement elections, wouldn't there?

Coming soon to a grocery store near you -- Gallon of milk:$25.79. If the EPA had been around in the Cretaceous, the dinosaurs would have been FORCED into extinction much sooner. Can you imagine the lacy-panty-hissy-fit they would have had over dinosaur manure?!

So you want more regulations including taking a axe to freedom of speech? If you knowledgeable about the issue why don't you enlighten us instead of condemning us? Or is that too much bother?

Actually no. The dinosaurs would have been given endangered species protection, and they would still be around today. Unfortunately they would have decimated the human race, and we would not be here.
