BP Spills Tar Sands, or Heavy Crude Oil, into Lake Michigan

Today, BP is calling the particularly nasty tar sands they spilled into the lake “heavy crude”. Like the Kalamazoo spill that’s still not cleaned up , the Lake Michigan spill will prove tough to straighten out, since- indeed!- the “heavy” crude is heavy, and will sink to the bottom of the lake, choking off life there that feeds the life on the surface . It’s terrible, in other words, and I bet none of these manipulative big-oil execs will end up being prison bitches because of it … which is a shame.
