Mercury Awareness Week: Get Active
Tip #2: Tap into your inner activist.
As President Obama prepares to approve the first nationwide protections against mercury emissions from coal plants, big-business lobbyists are working to block these safeguards. To show your support for the regulations — which would cut 90% of mercury from coal-fired power plants — consider coordinating or attending a rally, demonstration, or teach-in to urge the president to stand up to polluters and protect all Americans, especially children and pregnant women, from the harms of mercury. If you’ve only got time to quickly sign a petition, you can do so here.
