It is very interesting to note that that everyone is concerned in this video about green house gasses from coal fired plants but nothing is mentioned of the 50 tons of mercury that these plants put into the atmosphere each and every year in the United States alone.
Coal plants put out lots of nasty stuff that have covered the globe but none as nasty as mercury.
Now that the greenhouse gas theory has been run down by increasing global cooling we do not have to worry about CO2 emissions, unless one wants to worry because one has nothing better to do, but we do have to worry about many of the other foul emissions, especially that of mercury.
After all without sufficient CO2
we would all be dead.
Visible above the horizon is what many plant specialists, environmentalists, and scientists believe to be the culprit:
Jim Berry, a horticulturalist who owns a wholesale nursery in Grand Saline, Texas describes a 30-mile stretch of Highway 21 as a place where,
Pecan grower Harvey Hayek said,
Coal is really dirty stuff and we get exactly what we expect in terms of environmental degradation.
Sulfur dioxide is just one of many
pollutants that degrade life forms but in terms of toxicity nothing
is as potent per gram as mercury.
Mercury-contaminated brains are
One does not have to be overdeveloped in the intelligence department to understand that a highly potent neurological poison can cause neurological problems in animals and humans exposed to it.
Hotwiring of neurological tissues with mercury leads to serious problems such as diminished sexual development and fertility - which covers only a sliver of the full range of pathology that can manifest from mercury contamination. Mercury can be contained in the smoke stacks but the government does not even bother to regulate the industry’s output of mercury.
They would rather spend billions of
dollars radiating or feeling people up at the airport than contain
the real threat of mercury pollution.
National Geographic published on December 3, 2010, Male birds that eat mercury-contaminated food show “surprising” homosexual behavior.
In a recent experiment with captive white ibises, many of the males exposed to the metal chose other males as mates.
The point of this research extends far beyond the issue of sexual behavior. I take great exception to Frederick’s assertion that this study has no ramification for humans.
Lou Guillette, a zoologist at the Medical University of South Carolina who was quoted in the National Geographic article said,
And truly, we need to stop, look at, and
reflect upon this study.
States that are reporting the highest
levels of mercury emissions
The news offered by Dr. Palmer from the University of Texas and a Harvard Research team is that the mercury in the air is having its direct effect on our children, playing its part in the devastating epidemic of neurological disorders including autism.
It is not just the fish, the vaccines or
the dental amalgam that are saturating our bodies with mercury.
Americans and people around the world are going to have to wake up
to the fact that mercury is in the air they breathe, in the soil
they plant in, and in the water they drink. Hundreds of millions of
people in the world are exposed to mercury contamination but our
government health officials are not really concerned even when
scientists speak up about how it is even devastating our children’s
mental and emotional health.
Pediatric neurologist Dr. Suresh Kotagal of the Mayo Clinic summed it up for the entire panel: “There is really no place for mercury in children.” Other panelists went on to explain that dental mercury is like lead. The panel urged the FDA to quickly contraindicate amalgam for these vulnerable populations and insisted that it provide consumers with labeling containing clear warnings.
Has the FDA responded as it should? No!
One more time they demonstrate is the last thing in the world they
are interested in is protecting people from serious harm.
Pediatricians deserve credit for
incredible cruelty and ignorance for injecting mercury into babies
on their first day of life with their totally unnecessary hepatitis
It is generally invisible in the
environment as are the mercury fumes released 24 hours a day from
dental fillings, which offer the worst type of chronic exposure.
Both tubulin and actin are critically
important for the growth of dendrites or maintenance of axon
structures of neurons. Exposing neurons to mercury rapidly results
in the stripping of tubulin from the axon structure, leaving bare
neurofibrils that form the tangles that are the diagnostic hallmark
of Alzheimer’s disease.
Depending on its precise chemical form,
route of exposure, and dose, mercury can damage the brain, kidneys,
immune system, nervous system, and cardiovascular system. It can
also affect the reproductive system and act as a mutagen.
At the beginning of the 21st
century, the EPA’s top mercury scientist found that 630,000 American
children - one in every six - are born each year with potentially
unsafe levels of mercury in their blood.
What no one has clearly communicated is
that those safe places have become extinct, especially in the
northern hemisphere, leaving us and our children with no safe haven
from a chemical onslaught that will only continue to get worse.
Awaiting each and every child born on the planet is a life doomed to being poisoned.
Doctors need to be advised that all efforts to derail the chemical buildup taking place in us have failed, and the direct effects of this chemical poisoning are resulting in more and more symptoms.
But doctors will not be told about any of this by medical officials from either the government or private medical associations.
The fact that toxic damages from the
Gulf of Mexico oil disaster are being hidden, denied, and covered
up, and the fact that the government is against natural chelation of
mercury, adds up to a one-two punch against trusting much of
anything from the official medical world when it comes to heavy
metal contamination - or anything else for that matter.
Parents must also be aware of powerful
poisons that can rain down on their children if they live too near a
coal-fired plant or any other point source of mercury pollution.
A Case in Point: Texas might be one of the nastiest places to live in terms of mercury contamination but Pennsylvania, one of the states at the center of the gas rush, is only partially treating substances that gush from gas wells, then actually dumping environmentally harmful liquids into rivers and streams from which communities get their drinking water.
Ever increasing levels of toxicity are
the main threat to humanity at this point (besides a possible coming
Ice Age and financial/economic collapse with an accompanying
collapse in agricultural production) and unfortunately there are
fewer and fewer places to run to for safety.
Chemical, heavy metal and radiation
exposures have been increasing dramatically through the years as
chronic diseases have surged, even among the young who are the most
vulnerable, and we have done absolutely nothing about it except to
worry about CO2, a gas very necessary for life.
I think the day is coming soon that this
denial is going to be crushed by events and life will no longer
continue to be the massive amusement park that we have made it.
