Mercury Pollution

Supreme court weighing rules to limit pollution from US power stations (An article from The Guardian.)

If this concerns you please voice your concern to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Here’s what I just sent:

Please side with human and environmental health and vote to support the rules to limit the release of mercury and other toxins unnecessarily emitted from coal-fired power plants and other sources. I support these rules because the intelligence of children and the health of the population in general is far more important than the profits of a few companies.

Thank you for considering the broader and long-term implications of this issue and remembering just because you aren’t receiving many emails like this from young mothers and their young children I assure you they would also support these rules as would the vast majority of the U.S. and global population had they been better informed and more involved so amongst all the corporate lobbying please keep the silent majority in mind when making your decision on this important issue.
