Tell Congress Mercury Pollution is NOT Good For You

Anti-environment forces in Congress apparently want you to believe mercury pollution is good for you.

How else do you explain that one of the first bills introduced in Congress would block new toxic emissions standards for cement plants – the third largest manmade source of mercury pollution in America? 

These standards are essential to protect public health and, in particular, the health of developing fetuses and young children.

This is the first salvo in a continued assault on America's clean air and public health protections by this Congress, and we need your help to beat them back.

Please send an email right now to your members of Congress urging them to oppose this cynical attempt to allow big polluters to continue to poison Americans.
