Signed of coarse. Until people vote in true environmentalist our elected officials will keep voting on the side of this fossil fuel continuation. Between trail derailments, broken pipes, oil well explosions, and foul air this will be a living nightmare for us with no end in sight until either we kill ourselves off completely or the fuel runs out, and maybe a few humans may of survived.

I could use a sheriff myself; I live in the blast zone. But, of course, that is a "maybe" and people who are breathing and drinking poison are a "for sure." So they need one first. Heidi, I'm so sorry you have to suffer that. It makes me ashamed of our state.

Signed Cal. Joanne, that smell was horrendous for hours. I can't believe the city of Greeley allowing much more, it smells whose than Swift Meat Packing plant does. And it does get bad.

You know how the "old" auto repair shops had smelled? Of grease, oil, and gas, that's how it smelled.

Could not sign as not American. when will people realize that there are no more excuses for "Big Oil". We can have clean energy and electric cars which now truly can do the job. All that is lacking is the political will to do it.

Absolutely signed and noted. Thank You Cal. Although I live in Canada, we have a CN rail line behind our property. For years there was not too much traffic on these lines, mostly shipping wheat and other crops, and lumber coming out of the North. One afternoon, while sitting on the patio I started counting oil cars - there were 90 + 2 propane cars, the rest being for crops. We now get trains coming through at a usual rate of 4 per day. There have been a few trains, derailed and spilling oil , one accident into Lake Wabamun. These in no way compare to some of the tragic accidents, but now it does cause some worry. Port Metro Vancouver is getting coal from Washington state, and railed in from the east, and now more oil is going by rail. Certainly hoping the Keystone never goes through!. Way to go Maine for all the people doing the right thing!!

Purtroppo non un problema che si viene a verificare solo negli Stati Uniti. Spero che i governanti di tutto il mondo ne prendano atto e comincino a preoccuparsi della salute dei propri cittadini

More restrictions must be placed on all aspects of oil, fracking and coal including transportations,
