well dori i have a pretty easy conversation breaker for the holidays where i live.

just in the last week or so democratic gov ed rendell of pa pushed through an environmental initiative that will make it a reqirement for all 36 coal fired power plants in our state to upgrade thier mercury emissions standards by 2010. this standard is over and above what the federal guidelines call for.

we recently installed a test system for mercury removal on 1 of the generating units at homer city station and ran the thing for 2 weeks. we also took baseline readings for a comparitive of the other 2 generating units. after the test was complete it was determined that mercury emissions from the test unit were successfully reduced by 80%.

looks like a lot of good paying living wage jobs are going to be created as the intense scope of work begins to take place across pa to bring all power plants into compliance.

sounds like i'm going to be busy for the next few years.

plus the harmfull effects of mercury to our children and their families is going to be greatly reduced.

quality of life......................just another great example of why the dems need to be in power.

a great idea for my state by a forward progessive thinking gov. glad i voted for him.
