Detritus from the Gold Rush is heading toward America’s food basket

When gold was discovered in California in 1849, the miners were confronted with a problem: there were huge amounts of the precious metal in the foothills of the Sierra and the only way to get it out was to blast it out of the soil with high-pressure hoses.

The resulting mud containing the gold was run through sluices and mixed with mercury so the gold would settle to the bottom. The remains of the 19th-century practice are still visible in the area, and the poisonous mercury is now slowly making its way toward the fruit and nut orchards, and the rice fields of California’s lush Central Valley, America’s food basket, according to new research by a team of British and American scientists.

Not to mention a just published study of mercury in fish from CA was not shown to be any sort of danger in the consumption of said fish. Besides all that bad boy mercury occurs naturally in numerous locations in California.......

Just more Junk Science.. When we open up a Open pit mine and the exposed sulphur makes sulphuric acid it's a Crime. Yet it has been there for millions of years and it was no problem.

The world as we know it can't live without Co2 . Plants Need it to do there life cycle. Yet Al Gore says it's killing us and the Atmosphere only has less than 300 PPM of the stuff that keeps plants alive. More Junk Science. Of course he Held the wires with his teeth and made the Internet. First Packet Switching was done by Ham Radio but if you look it up Darpa made the Internet.
