Oil & Water Don’t Mix: A Rally for the Great Lakes
Part of the Kalamazoo River was ruined when a million gallons of poisonous tar sands oil spilled from a poorly maintained pipeline, owned and operated by Enbridge Energy. Enbridge, the company responsible for more than 800 oil spills since 1999, has also been pumping oil through two 60-year-old pipes that run through the Straits of Mackinac. Now the company plans to increase their capacity drastically, pumping even more oil through the Straits - including the toxic and corrosive tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada.
