The EPA's proposed new regulations on mercury emissions from cement kilns are just that: proposed. They aren't law yet, so if you care about reducing levels of this potent neurotoxin, please take a moment to sign this petition drawn up by Friends of Hudson:
The cement kiln lobbyists have already started telling the EPA what they think. It is imperative that we also tell the EPA that we care about a meaningful reduction of mercury and other toxins from cement plants and support their efforts to put forward these new regulations. Please sign on - it only takes a minute and it will make a difference. Every signature counts.
