But this isn't an isolated incident. It's part of a pattern of disaster that has seen more oil spilled in the past few months than in the previous 40 years combined -- and earned trains carrying crude oil a dirty nickname: Bomb Trains. There's only one real solution that works for the planet: Leave the tar sands and other extreme oil in the ground. So just like we're working to shut down Keystone XL, we need to shut down the bomb trains to stop the dirtiest oil from threatening the safety of our communities
But President Obama and his Secretary of Transportation, Anthony Foxx, have been dragging their feet on regulations on Bomb Trains -- bowing to industry pressure that says it's "too expensive" to protect people and planet. With final regulations due in just a few weeks, we're running out of time to convince the president's team to take action. Sign here to add your voice, and ban the Bomb Trains for good.
