The bad guys in the mercury-battery imbroglio are NOT the politicians.
Nor, for once, are the Evil Men the !@#$%^&*()_+| bureaucrats.  The EPA
wanted to set up an exchange programme for mercury batteries.  It was the
photo stores who refused, through their various trade associations.  They
killed the idea dead in the water, one of the many, many short-sighted
policies which highlight a rather regressive industry.
