Why choose a trail at Train Wreck?

On June 22, 2013, a train carrying crude oil derailed and exploded near the town of Lac-Mégantic in Quebec, Canada. The disaster killed 47 people and destroyed much of the town. Less than two years later, on July 6, 2015, a train carrying crude oil derailed and exploded near the town of Mosier, Oregon. The disaster killed none but caused extensive damage to the town’s infrastructure.

These disasters are just two examples of a larger problem. In the United States, there have been more than 1,500 railroad accidents involving crude oil since 2006. And in Canada, there have been more than 1,000 such accidents in the same period.

What is causing these accidents? A large part of the problem is that trains carrying crude oil are travelling through populated areas. In addition, many of these trains are being operated by companies that have a poor safety record.

The solution to this problem is not to stop transporting crude oil by rail. Instead, we need to find ways to make this transportation safer. This will require better regulation of the rail industry, and it will also require investment in new technology and infrastructure.
