BP Spills Tar Sand Crude Oil Into Lake Michigan

The leak came from the big BP oil refining complex in Whiting, Indiana, near Chicago, and is the plant where, a few years ago, a plan to release more ammonia into Lake Michigan was stopped by protests.

But where regulators did allow more mercury to be discharged.

Take this as another warning about the added risk of building an oil shipping dock operation in Northern Wisconsin, at Superior on the Big Lake.

Like I said the other day, oil spills and other forms of environmental contamination are necessarily 'somewhere else' stories.
