L.A.W. editor Bridget Tingley has reported to you on the recent plan to allow British Petroleum to increase its discharge of waste into Lake Michigan from its refinery in Indiana. She followed up with both British Petroleum, local elected officials, and the candidates running for Grand Rapids mayor to solicit their comments about this controversy and reported on that, too. See previous articles for full details on that end of the story.
In keeping with that, we are making available British Petroleum's FAQ about the matter, which you can read here as a PDF file. BP provided this fact sheet to us direct. We agreed to air all sides to the story - including their explanation of the facts as they see them. We may disagree with what they say versus what they do, but we are always open to explanations by all parties. You, our readers, get to make your own decision on issues at that point. Read on.
