Jerry... I am interested in the quality of the water I kayak in, the more pristine the better. I am concerned about this meetup group turning into a political forum.

Mike-- how can you be a kayaker and not be interested in someone trying to pollute the water you kayak in ?  This is directly related to the sport/pastime/hobby  of kayaking...

Charlie,
   I appreciate your efforts to keep everyone informed on issues close to interests of this group. However, I would suggest we refrain from using it as a forum for political discussion or expression. I am certainly interested in a healthier environment for myself and my children, but I also believe that there are adequate opportunities to engage in environmental advocacy outside this meetup group, which, of course, I would encourage.

Sierra Club - Explore, enjoy and protect the planet

Last year, the EPA finalized strong fertilizer, sewage and animal manure pollution limits for Florida to protect our iconic lakes, rivers, springs, and bays.But now Florida's victory for clean water is being threatened by the state agency meant to protect it.Since 1998, the Clean Water Act has required that Florida have strong pollution limits, but the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) bowed to polluter pressure over and over again, requiring the EPA to step in. Now the FDEP want to weaken the EPA rules designed to keep our waters safe and clean.Tell the FDEP that should be enforcing the protections for our water and environment put in place by the EPA, not undermining them.FDEP has decided to develop its own faux pollution standards to replace the EPA rule. The proposed FDEP rule puts our waterways at more risk than ever! Big Polluters hate the new EPA rule, but they love the FDEP. If we don't push FDEP to drop its weak rule, Big Florida Polluters will get what they want: a free pass to use our waterways as garbage dumps.

Please add your name to the list of Floridians who will not sit idly by while FDEP dumbs down our new pollution limits.
Thanks for taking action to protect our waterways. Sincerely,Cris CostelloSierra ClubP.S. After you take action, be sure to forward this alert to your friends and colleagues!
