    Sounds like another case of, "Everything's fine, nothing to see here, move along"
    Yes, and that happened when we had cryptosporidium poisoning in Lake Michigan water years ago. Only when people began to die were eyebrows raised, and officials finally got to the bottom of it.

    One would be Citgo in Lemont, Illinois.

    I purchase Citgo most of the time.

    So you have no clue. Like I said Citgo can buy BP crude from Gulf of Mexico, or even BP Canada.

    As I understand the stats and reports, BP is about the worst offender to our environment. But, it wasn't Citgo that leaked oil into Lake Michigan, it was BP.

    I doubt the report said that or they're just flat out incorrect. The article you linked said that the US Coast Guard and EPA will oversee the cleanup, which is what they typically do for an oil spill.

    BP would have a oil spill response organization on retainer. They're the responsible party, they pay for the clean up. The government monitors the clean up and ensures its complete. This is standard for any oil spill.

    Thankfully, global cooling saved the day.
