Al Franken and David Sirota talk about mercury pollution during March 22, 2005 'The Al Franken Show' radio broadcast

Al Franken said yesterday that companies "have no right to pollute...they should clean up their act."

decreased health for adults
decreased health for babies
higher health care costs
fewer lands, rivers, and lakes people can enjoy

Al Franken was talking to regular guest David Sirota by phone about Bush's lax regulation of mercury.
