Therefore, regardless of the rejection of Phillips 66’s crude oil trains, we must remain educated about potential threats. Click on the link below to read the latest MRWG newsletter, which includes …
► How Kern County followed in SLO County’s footsteps … saying “NO!” to crude oil trains.
► How the federal government used flawed data when canceling improved brakes for trains.
► How railroads have yet again missed the deadline for installing new safety technology.
► How Canada is expanding their production of dangerous tar sands and investing in crude oil trains.
► Why Phillips’ former claim of needing oil trains to gain “energy independence” was simply misleading.
► Plus — dozens of recent examples of serious railroad and oil industry safety problems.
