How much mercury is in our oceans?

    Researchers lead by the US Geological Survey have found that in two decades, mercury levels have risen by 30%.  Predictions are that the level will continue to rise, becoming twice as contaminated as they are now, by 2050, unless emissions decrease.  Scientists have discovered that absorbed industrial, anthropogenic emissions transform into mercury (through bacterial processes) in the deep ocean, blowing the theory that mercury came naturally from the ocean out the window.
