Since you trust the EPA so much

Thanks to loopholes in the Clean Air Act, cement plants are poorly regulated. The EPA was sued four times in the past ten years by a number of states and environmental groups for failing to regulate mercury emissions from coal-burning industries. North Carolina ranks in the top ten states with the highest mercury releases. In 2006, EPA toxic release data ranked New Hanover County with the sixth highest mercury releases in the state.
