    Just thought I'd share this story... I knew these refinerys polluted but read how many pounds per day they will now be allowed... sickening.

    For those that don't want to read the article:
    The company will now be allowed to dump an average of 1,584 pounds of ammonia and 4,925 pounds of sludge into Lake Michigan every day. The additional sludge is the maximum allowed under federal guidelines.
