Thank God for Obama and the Democrats. They are all that can save communities along the Ohio River from having kids and grandkids with three eyes and webbed hands & feet.

The 1 percent 'we create jobs' crowd. Unfortunately, those 'jobs' kill the rest of us.

The 1 percent wants to dump more and more poison into the River but the EPA is watching.

Mercury is super bad stuff. Ever hear of the Mad Hatter disease? In the middle ages hat makers used mercury in the manufacture of men's top hats, They literally went mad from the effects on their brains. Mercury can have toxic effects in very small quantities. It can particularly negatively impact children.

If the waste going into the river from those plants has a concentration of mercury lower than the concentration of mercury in river water that waste would actually be reducing the concentration of mercury in the river. But I’m sure Wheeldog and rover would still be babbling about the plants putting mercury into the river. Do either of you have any idea what the term concentration means?
