What Professor Robert P. Mason Believes...

*It is important to realize that achieving a 20% decrease in mercury deposition will require substantial cuts in current anthropogenic emissions, given the already very sizeable build-up of mercury in terrestrial environments and ocean waters,” said Robert P. Mason, Ph.D., professor of marine sciences at the University of Connecticut.

*He means that mercury is damaging, and could increasingly become the main damage of the marine waters.
