Pearl Jam Says “Don’t Go To BP Amoco”

The MidWest is pissed at BP, and so is Pearl Jam. British Petroleum is often looked at as one of the “better” oil companies…one that actually has the environment on their mind.

The BP Whiting Refinery in Indiana has secured a new water permit that “allows BP to dump an average of 1,584 pounds of ammonia and 4,925 pounds of suspended solids into the lake every day,” says the Chicago Tribune.

BP has written their own statement to say that the ammonia levels are still at 50% of the federal standards, and that the change in their output is due to having to process a totally different, and heavier, crude oil.

The public, the environmental groups, and even some politicians aren’t convinced. Pearl Jam even wrote a song about it and performed it at this year’s Lollapalooza. Watch a bit of their “Don’t Go to BP Amoco” protest song below, or listen to the entire bit here.

Thanks for the tip, Kimberly!

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
