Mercure

“Deep water’s ability to sequester mercury may soon be exhausted. Humans are on track to emit as much mercury in the next 50 years as they did in the last 150 years … increas[ing] the odds that mercury levels in key food species will rise, increasing humans’ exposure.” (http://www.nature.com/news/humans-have-tripled-mercury-levels-in-upper-ocean-1.15680)

Those of you ’emitting’ mercury will be made safe with duct tape (http://www.epa.gov/mercury/spills/#thermometer).
