What is the largest source of mercury pollution in the world?

    The worst polluter of mercury in addition to the worst polluter of green house gasses are from the coal fired power plants that are located all across this country. This mercury has decimated fish populations in almost every state in the country. And many warnings have been realized in communities warning about high level of the neurotoxin in the fish.

    From the 2nd link below: “More than two-thirds of fish tested by the federal government between 1998 and 2005 are contaminated by mercury at levels exceeding EPA standards according to a recent report.”

      Its amazing to me how much a coal plant actually pollutes. Its a shame that so much of the United States and the world for that matter is powered by coal.
