Researchers found that global mercury emissions from man made sources has declined by 30 percent in 20 years (1990-2010).
It turns out that levels of mercury in dolphins are linked to exposure in humans. Scientists have found that consuming locally caught seafood may cause some major issues for humans.
Mercury is being pelted regularly by bits of dust from an ancient comet. Scientists have taken a closer look at the planet and have found that this bombardment has a discernible effect in its tenuous atmosphere.
Scientists have created a material out of industrial waste and orange peel that may be able to cheaply and effectively remove mercury from ocean water.
Get ready to see Mercury. In the early morning skies over the next several weeks you'll be able to glimpse the planet at around 5:45 a.m. in the Eastern skies.
Mercury pollution in California may be coming from a surprising source: elephant seals. Scientists have found that molting elephant seals actually shed considerable amounts of mercury into coastal waters.

On July 25, scientists discovered a mile-long asteroid that raced past Earth at about 45,000 miles per hour and a safe distance of 5.4 million miles away.
Mercury pollution has increased drastically over the 20th century. Scientists have studied a 600-year-old ice core and have found that global mercury levels have increased in the atmosphere quickly in the modern era.
Astronomers are learning a bit more about Mercury with the help of the MESSENGER spacecraft.
You may want to rethink ordering that tuna. Scientists have found that mercury concentrations in Hawaiian yellowfin tuna are increasing at a staggering rate of 3.8 percent or more per year.
