12-10-10: Does It Take a Fox to Clean Up the Bay?

December 10, 2010 at 8:05 am Leave a comment

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Chesapeake Bay “czar” announced this week that he’s leaving his post. Chuck Fox is moving on from the bay restoration effort to help launch an international ocean conservation organization.

Fox was in the role of czar for just 21 months. He’s leaving at a crucial moment in the cleanup: bay-area states are creating plans to go on what’s called a “pollution diet,” which will reduce the amount of nutrients and sediment flowing into the bay. The state plans were due last month, and the EPA’s final plan is due at the end of the year.

Today, Sheilah asks Chuck Fox about his career change.
