Can We Fix Everything? Should We?

In the words of the Eleventh Circuit in Florida, the generic answer to those questions is "No."  The Sierra Club sued the USEPA for delisting seven bodies of water as impaired under the Clean Water Act. 

Let's be perfectly clear here:  the seven bodies of water are contaminated above several of the total maximum daily loads (TMDL) pollutant levels of the Clean Water Act, it's just that the contamination is caused by nature, not man.  The opinion addresses other issues, but this one seemed to rise above the others.

June 16, 2007 Update:  Despite this ruling, however, Florida is in dutch for violating the Clean Water Act.
