The risk of catastrophic derailment of the trains necessary to feed the proposed Bulk Export Terminal cannot be ignored.
We have seen that through four anniversaries:
-- Two years ago, the Williams Gas Pipeline Explosion & LNG Risk
-- Three years ago, the destruction of Lac-Megantic, Quebec, by Bakken crude oil
-- Ten days ago, the Bakken crude fire from the UP derailment in Mosier, Oregon
-- Three centuries ago, the last rupture of the Cascadia subduction zone.
