The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration this week announced that this year’s dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico is the biggest one ever measured, covering 8,776 square miles. The announcement is adding fuel to the debate whether state and federal governments are doing enough to cut pollution coming from farms, despite voluntary efforts from farmers to curb nutrient runoff.
