Mercury is a metal. It has the unusual characteristic - for a metal - of being liquid at room temperature. Mercury sees many uses, from dental fillings to fungicides to various industrial processes. Mercury is also poisonous. It is a neurotoxin and, at high enough doses, can damage the brain or even cause death.


We can either destroy the conditions for human life on the planet while clinging to free market fundamentalism or we can secure our future and create climate justice by requiring that commerce work within the laws ecological sustainability and within the laws of social justice.
