Bomb Trains in Syracuse?- What You Need to Know

Independent Media CNY | May 12, 2015 | Video by TheIndyCNY

A presentation on Bakken crude oil trains with Sandy Steubing, an activist and organizer with PAUSE, People of Albany United for Safe Energy.

“Every week trains loaded with volatile crude oil “fracked” in North Dakota’s Bakken shale travel through Syracuse. With very little public awareness and no study of environmental impacts, the gas & oil industry has made our region a dangerous hub for highly flammable oil using these “bomb trains.” The rail system was never built for this kind of dangerous cargo, yet these trains travel through population centers and next to schools, homes, and businesses.”
