Animal Agriculture Pollutes Chesapeake Bay

Animal agriculture is polluting and destroying aquatic life in the Chesapeake Bay. The many nutrients brought into the Chesapeake drainage in the form of grain to feed cattle, pigs and poultry in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia are finding their way back into the bay. Farmed animals only convert about a quarter of the nutrients in the grain into meat, milk and eggs, and the remainder is left in their manure in the form of nitrogen and phosphorous. These elements fuel explosive blooms of algae that prevent sunlight from reaching the bay's bottom and absorb virtually all oxygen available in the water.

Animal agriculture is taking a heavy toll on God’s Creation. The environmental devastation humanity is causing for profit and taste is causing misery throughout the Earth. While most humans continue to ignore the plight of God’s animals, the planet is showing clear signs of trouble, that unless a change of heart and consciousness is evident through actions, it might be too late for the generations to come.
