The Sierra Club is using the $50 million it received from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to run the ads on the Washington D.C. Metro system beginning today.
The Sierra Club claims that fetuses are “full of mercury,” “reservoirs” of mercury and that all mercury emissions from power plants wind up in newborns are twisted.

Moreover, U.S. power plants are responsible for only about 0.50% of global mercury emissions while Mother Nature is responsible for about 70%.
If mercury has harmed anything, it’s enviro credibility.
