Coal-fired power plants, boilers, and cement factories contribute to half of all the mercury air emissions in the United States. Mercury is a highly neurotoxic contaminant that gets deposited in oceans, lakes, and streams where it accumulates in fish, wildlife, and humans when we eat contaminated foods. Nearly every US state has measured unsafe mercury contamination in fish.
