I live just a few short miles from the Potomac River and not all that far from the Patuxent River. It's widely known here in the Maryland/Virginia area to not eat anything out of those waterways, for many reasons. Now add Mercury to that. I've noticed the commercials recently about how much land coal mining destroys, I always thought coal mining was underground. I believe we need to make mandates to outlaw historical practices and force the industries to move to cleaner sources of fuel. The bad part is there will be a cost, and as we all know, right now people as a whole are not open to anything that will cost them more to maintain their lifestyle. Let's hope we don't destroy ourselves before we get smart about what's right.
