Mountain of Tar Sands Waste builds in Detroit

The Koch Brothers are building a mountain of tar sands waste in Detroit. [NY Times]

Detroit residents are now see a three-story pile of petroleum coke covering an entire city block on the other side of the Detroit River where they used to see lovely views of the Ambassador Bridge and the Detroit skyline. 

Detroit's ever-growing black mountain is the unloved, unwanted and long overlooked byproduct of Canada's tar sands boom.

And no one knows what to do about it, except Koch Carbon, which owns it.
