Gov't considers 7 states for mercury site


news.yahoo.com

RICHLAND, Wash. – The federal government is trying to find a location to store the nation's excess mercury deposits, with seven states being considered. But the government is quickly finding out that very few people want the stuff.

A Colorado woman who showed up at a public forum on the issue last week had this to say about the plan: "No, no, no, no, no. No mercury." The Idaho governor was equally emphatic in his opposition, saying "not gonna happen."

Sometimes called "quicksilver," mercury is a dense, metallic element that occurs naturally in the environment and has been used in gold mining, manufacturing chlorine and caustic soda, batteries, thermometers and other uses. Its use has been in decline in this country since it was linked to health issues, including pulmonary and neural disorders.


I guess the have to put the stuff somewere but seriously could you live around this stuff? knowing all the health disorders it can cause?

If you're wondering what states they are:



Officials are considering sites in seven states: Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, Texas, Missouri and South Carolina.


Glad mine's not on the list!

If you can keep from eating it you will be fine!! We used to play with this stuff as kids! It is great.

Pop open a thermometer and you have a little liquid ball! Better than a slinky!

Missouri or Kansas will take it. We don't mind. Picher, OK was destroyed by a Tornado a couple of years ago, it was already in the middle of a SuperFund site. Eagle Picher battery plant is right next door, so put it there!

Can't they just call up a vaccine manufacturer to buy it all up? The H1N1 should use up quite a bit.

Damn, My state is ALWAYS in one of the "recommended" states to dump crap in; Nevada.
They better check themselves 4 they wreck themselves. We have enough of toxic crap out here to feed a couple states. Take that stuff elsewhere!
We dont need any more.
