The problem is that there is a disconnect between the regulators and the regulated. As we can see in the following article by Curtis Tate copied from The Oregonian today (January 28, 2015)
"Washington officials initially not told of oil spillWASHINGTON — State and federal officials are investigating an oil spill from a railroad tank car atWashington state’s largest refinery last November, but key agencies were kept in the dark about it for at least a month.
I didn't summarized the article because I think it is bringing important information that I wouldn't like to be out of context. My previous blog was about a pipeline now is about trains, it doesn't make any difference.
But the main point that I want to make is: If the people who don't want regulations are not able to regulate themselves, how can we as a society survive within a system in which the bottom line is profit, and not the wellbeing of the citizenry?
