The pile I reported on a while ago is still growing.
The refuse of tar sands mined 2,000 miles from here, is being dumped next to one of the most precious water sources in the world.
Mostly in retaliation for Moroun's loss of a new bridge contract. ( Koch front groups at one time had tacked fake eviction notices on doors in the neighborhoods, in a scare tactic).
He still lost and now cost's everyone money as he appeals.
So he allowed the Koch's to dump this stuff on his property near the existing bridge.
It appears that others are beginning to notice.
And no one knows quite what to do about it, except Koch Carbon, which owns it, and Matty Moroun, who owns the property.
The company is controlled by Charles and David Koch, wealthy industrialists who back a number of conservative and libertarian causes including activist groups that challenge the science behind climate change. The company sells the high-sulfur, high-carbon waste, usually overseas, where it is burned as fuel. "
It's bring yet another slice of libe(R)topia to Michigan
The GOP usurpers of elected officials, haven't said a word, from their seats in a city in disarray.
"“What is really, really disturbing to me is how some companies treat the city of Detroit as a dumping ground,” said Rashida Tlaib, the Michigan state representative for that part of Detroit. “Nobody knew this was going to happen.” Almost 56 percent of Canada’s oil production is from the petroleum-soaked oil sands of northern Alberta, more than 2,000 miles north. "
The states former Democratic governor, put an end to Canadian trash imports to Michigan trash dumps.
But our new GOP governor, being in the pocket of the Koch's has allowed this to continue.
