California oil train risks worse in minority areas: report

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 06/30/2015 - 19:08
By Terry Wade HOUSTON (Reuters) - Californians most exposed to the risks of oil train derailments or fires overwhelmingly live in poorer, minority neighborhoods, two environmental groups in the state said on Tuesday. The report, the first of its kind to explicitly link issues of class and race to the ongoing oil train safety debate, urged state regulators to ban oil imports by train into California and reject permits for several projects refiners have proposed to expand oil-by-rail cargo capacity.
