PRI: conservative christians support EPA mercury rules


Public Radio International has begun airing the report of a stunning alliance:
Research suggests one in six U.S. babies are born with dangerously high levels of the neurotoxin and the Christian groups are linking that with their staunch support of the unborn to encourage elected officials to back the EPA's effort. "Coal burning power plants in our region have helped raise mercury levels in our waters, threatening the unborn with permanent brain damage. That’s why I am counting on Senator Alexander to defend the EPA’s ability to protect the unborn from mercury pollution," said a woman identifying herself as 'Pastor Tracey' in an ad that aired in Tennessee.
Hosted by Bruce Gellerman, "Living on Earth" is an award-winning environmental news program that delves into the leading issues affecting the world we inhabit and airs Fridays on Yellowstone Public Radio.

Update, 24 December: Don Pogreba at Intelligent Discontent follows up with Montana's version of red state failure.
