What's a "false natural tendency"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Copperheart0718 (talkcontribs) 13:50, 14 January 2010 (UTC) The NRDC does not publish peer reviewed material and neither does Dr. Jane Hightower. All material that that uses them as a reference needs to be removed from this posting Dsteiny (talk) 00:15, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Nonsense[edit]

"Coal contains mercury as a natural contaminant. When it is fired for electricity generation, the mercury is released as smoke into the atmosphere. Most of this mercury pollution can be eliminated if pollution-control devices are installed.[12]" < This isn't true, because they still will have mercury to get rid of, which will still end up in the ocean in how they "throw it away." If mercury is produced, and not used, then it still becomes waste that ends up being "tossed" somewhere. Much of our "garbage" ends up in the ocean, so it will therefore still go to the oceans. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.208.204.236 (talk) 00:34, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
