Op-Ed by Tami Davis Biddle
Pennsylvanians face a continuing risk from mercury pollution. The Keystone and Conemaugh coal- fired power plants, both in Pennsylvania, are the second- and fourth-highest mercury emitters in the nation. In addition, Pennsylvanians feel the effects of other mercury polluters in neighboring states, including Ohio and West Virginia.
More than one-third of all the mercury pollution from power plants in the U.S. comes from plants in Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. All this puts our state residents at risk of exposure to mercury, a substance that the American Medical Association has called “a global pollutant, a major contaminant in the marine food supply, a serious neurotoxin, particularly in the developing fetus and possibly a promoter of cardiovascular disease.”
