Success Story
Mercury Controls at Last
In a major win for NRDC and our Members, the Obama Administration has issued new, lifesaving standards that will reduce the amount of mercury and other toxic air pollutants released from coal-burning power plants.

Mercury is a potent neurotoxin that damages developing brains in children and fetuses. But despite the devastating health risks, America's dirtiest power plants have been dodging mercury controls for years. With the new standards in place, these polluters will finally have to clean up their act. NRDC has waged a decades-long battle to get the government to side with the American people against big mercury polluters.
