Like I said over on PAUSE google, this is an excellent video for awareness of the problem. Unfortunately, they allude to the solution being safer rail cars when that won’t stop run away climate change at all. We need renewables for a real solution.

If you want to know why PAUSE is fighting so hard on this issue, watch this video. If the devastation was this intense in a small town, imagine what the effect would be in Albany, Syracuse or Rochester. As you see here, our government is not concerned and it’s up to us to protect our communities. Join our fight

Don’t get lost in what car is “safe” “safer” “unsafe”… find meaning in the fact that $/power for a few is far more significant than human life and that this could happen anywhere in the United States of America where many would be murdered (yes, murdered – see depraved indifference – 2nd degree murder in NYS) and many more would have their lives and history destroyed.
