Tragedies happen in the quest to supply us with our power needs... sad but true.
It ain't like there is any going back, or solar power will save us either, at least for the foreseeable future.

The fact remains, this - overall - is a pretty safe method of moving fuel from one place to another.

Are you going to stop driving because of an auto accident, or flying becuase of a plane crash?
The crash was caused by the failure of the railroad to have the proper kind of parking brakes on their cars. The parking brakes are applied with air pressure and when the air pressure goes down, which happened in this case because someone shut off the engines, the brakes release. They are just the opposite of truck brakes, which are released by air pressure.

Please wait...
