Claim: New EPA Rules to Reduce Mercury in Fish

How? less than 0.5% of atmospheric mercury os from U.S. power plant emissions. Seventy percent (70%) are from Gaia — which EPA is not regulating.

  1. BTW… where did those stats come from? Particularly the 0.5% figure? No disrespect but I have been way more aggresive on checking numbers of late. Too many magic number being bandied about. If you would email me at untrusted3(at)chuckandwarlita.(cee-ooo-em.). [sorry about the address silliness but I’ve be bot scraped and blasted before on other blogs]

  3. I grew up in a building that was heated with a coal furnace, and stored coal in the basement. I’m just fine except for a large disdain for all things EPA.
