    Victory for the United States

    Quote from the local paper. "Mercury limits treaty rejected. In a victory for the United States, world environmental leaders Friday rejected the idea of a binding treaty to curb the use of mercury....When released into the air, mercury spreads globally, contaminating fish and other seafood."

    This is a victory? A defeat means that health risks are diminished. A victory means that health risks are increased.
