News bites: Lawyers ask judge to reel in Feinberg’s rhetoric, revised Michigan oil spill numbers, and more

The owner of an oil pipeline that burst in Michigan earlier this year raised its estimate of how much oil spilled.

“The revised spill estimate was 20,082 barrels (843,444 gallons) of crude, the company said in an e-mailed statement. That’s up 3 percent from the initial spill estimate of 19,500 barrels,” Bloomberg reports.

And the Baltimore Sun reports, “Conservationists filed suit Wednesday to block the start of Maryland's first industrial wind project, contending the turbines built atop the state's highest mountain in Garrett County threaten to harm federally protected rare bats.”
