Washington Post Covers BP/Lake Michigan Story

The Washington Post reviews the uproar over BP's pollution plans at its Whiting, IN, refinery, highlighting the Illinois vs. Indiana angle.

With some participation by Wisconsin officials, the breadth of opposition and concern for the health of the Great Lakes could have been more regional.

Our state's silence on this issue is galling.

Some good news on this.

Many thanks. It does appear that BP, for now, is backing down. That's good. People and groups need to maintain their vigilance, as this is not the only refinery on the Great Lakes, nor will Indiana be the only state to drop the ball when it comes to aggressive Great Lakes protection.
