Boycott!

July 15, 2007

I’m not a boycotter, but don’t mess with our lakes, BP!

It’s a shame that practically all the intersections of major roads in the UP have a BP at them, and they’re run by real salt of the earth folks too.

Basically, to create 80 new jobs and refine Canadian crude, Indiana state regulators are letting BP pump 54 percent more ammonia and 35 percent more toxic sludge in to Lake Michigan. Double you tee eff? Not only that, but the entire “We’re BP, we’re going green” thing? Total crock. BP is one of the largest (if not the largest) polluters of the Great Lakes.

This goes against YEARS of efforts to clean up the lakes to their pre-industrialization qualities.

As of today, no more BP gasoline for me and my car! Not until BP starts doing what they say. Twofaced liars.
