What's So Bad About Mercury?
Why should you care about Mercury from, say, compact fluorescents or coal-fired power? You might have picked up pieces of info about high levels in fish but still are floundering a bit in the "how?" and "why?" "so what?" departments. The Blue Ocean Institute's quick and very watchable "Mercury: Not the Planet" video fills you in and provides ways to take action. Also check out its Guide to Ocean Friendly Seafood. If you're already an ocean issues expert, these are good links to pass along to uninitiated friends and family. Even if you are in the know, check out Blue Ocean's innovative approach to inspiring new relationships with the seas through art, literature and science.
