New Hampshire Shows the Way on Mercury Reduction

If New Hampshire is out to make North Carolina look bad, they're doing a fine job. A few days ago I noted that NC is on its way to a near total abdication of its responsibility to protect citizens, in this case from power plant mercury emissions.

Today I see that there's a mercury fight in New Hampshire as well, but with two important differences: (1) they are arguing over whether to cut mercury emissions by 80% or by 90%; and (2) the 80% bill has already passed one house of the state legislature. Gosh, it's almost as if the government in New Hampshire cares more about citizens' health than about maximizing power company profits.
