Sunday documentary film: Great Lakes, Bad Lines (2016) AND The Whale

20 Aug 2017 15:00

The film concerns the inevitable erosion and malfunction of Enbridge Line 5, a Canadian-owned pipeline that stretches across over 500 miles and transports 23 million gallons of oil through much of Michigan's Great Lakes on a daily basis. The line was built over 60 years ago, and is in urgent need of repair....

Empire Files host Abby Martin visits the scene of the crime in Chevron vs....
