Light bulbs not the only mercury hazard
I agree that mercury from broken fluorescent bulbs can pose a hazard. Thank you, George Will, for your concern [“Mad rush to save the planet not such a bright idea after all,” Opinion, April 3].
However, I have yet to read of your concern about the tons of waste mercury dumped into our waters by industries over the past decades.
Perhaps you were OK with that since it was just corporate America successfully externalizing production costs. And the corporate directors weren’t raising their kids on or about those toxic sites.
