The Northwest’s Pipeline on Rails

Posted by Content Coordinator on Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

After the tragic explosions of a runaway train carrying crude oil in Canada’s Lac Megantic community, the US Pacific Northwest must look more closely at its own burgeoning oil-by-rail developments. In the first comprehensive look at all of the currently operating and proposed projects, Sightline Institute’s Eric de Place adds up just exactly what the Northwest faces as the region invites the same oil trains that devastated Lac Megantic into its own backyards. He summarizes his findings in this video, and the full report is available at
