Posted Fri Nov 21 2008: from Indianapolis Star:
Indiana lands on group's Top 50 list of mercury emitters
Three Indiana power plants have landed on an environmental group's tally of the 50 facilities in the nation that emit the greatest amount of poisonous mercury into the air and water. Together, the 50 plants last year released about 20 tons of mercury, which can cause permanent damage to brains, kidneys and developing fetuses, according to a report from the Environmental Integrity Project, a nonprofit that advocates for stricter enforcement of environmental regulations.... Indiana has no restrictions specifically addressing mercury emissions from power plants.... Environmental activists would like the state to do more to reduce emissions from power plants.

Maybe Hoosiers ought to get some of them restrictions!
Here's an ApocaDocs' pet peeve: "Environmental activists would like the state to do more to reduce emissions from power plants." Just "environmental activists"? Don't regular people breath, too?
