Instead of banning bomb trains or demanding safety improvements senior Obama staff sat down with Big Oil and railroad CEOs for a chat about why better breaks and slower speeds are a bad idea because they would cost Big Oil too much money.

The worst thing about the vote to lift of the crude oil export ban last month is that it puts dozens more towns and communities in the path of dangerous bomb train shipments of crude oil by rail.

Now that Big Oil companies can sell the more-explosive Bakken and Tar Sands crude anywhere in the world, they're rushing hundreds of new shipments of this dirty stuff towards our coasts every day.

Noted & signed. TY, Dandelion!Perhaps if we protest, clamor & forestall enough everything to do w/ production & distribution of dirty fossil fuels; then energy sources could progress to being renewable clean energy for everyone. The only reason it hasn't happened thus far is bc that Big Oil bomb train is transporting huge loads of profit; & the large corporations care nothing about the potential disaster that is @ hand.. just their bottom line.

LEAVE ALL FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
82% of Fossil Fuel Reserves must be LEFT IN THE GROUND - 82%! -
if we are to avert Climate CATASTROPHE due to Global Warming.
NO MORE drilling, coal mining, FRACKING,
and transporting, leaking and spilling and exploding,
and BURNING and spewing into the Atmosphere.
NO MORE exploration for new sources!
This should be Environmentalists' MANTRA:
LEAVE FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
==========
Leave the OIL IN THE SOIL
Leave the Coal in the Hole
Leave the TAR SANDS IN THE LAND.
Eliminate ALL use and extraction of Dirty Fossil Fuels for Energy, NOW! ASAP
=========

The very NATURE of Corporate Capitalism -
is to LEAVE NO POTENTIAL SOURCE OF REVENUE AND PROFIT$$$, UNTOUCHED.
To actually IMPLEMENT Leaving Dirty Fossil Fuels in the Ground -
will take MAJOR CHANGES to Corporate Capitalism. MAJOR. Like, eliminating it.....
