"Report Links Mercury on Cape Cod To Global Pollution"
"Unlike many other states, Massachusetts significantly reduced mercury emissions coming from electric power plants and incinerators in recent years.
According to a study by the Environmental Integrity Project, mercury emissions in the state dropped from 292 pounds in 2000 to 97 pounds in 2008.
Now, Massachusetts is about to embark on a second phase to bring mercury emissions down by 95 percent from 1999 levels by 2012, but it could have little impact on the Cape and Islands."Source: Cape Cod Times, 11/02/2010
