I took the time to reflect upon my previous thoughts pertaining to the train derailments in Ohio, Florida and Greece. With the respect to the destructions upon human life, habitats and species, the many other psychological impacts as well as psychological, point to the similarities of the chemical spills to that of oil spills in the oceans, waters and so-forth.
I know that the natural resource of oil has received criticism – especially of its effect upon climate / environment., but I think the train derailments and chemical spills are really trying to tell us that what is most criticized can often be sought of as good, and what we have thought of as safe and good can also become harmful, thus; to note if oil was the only natural resource that one was able to utilize, then I am guessing it would also be appreciated more.
As per previous writings I have often noted that the World’s natural resources such as oil, woods / trees, minerals are precious, to connect with history and current events, where individuals and groups sought to explore the abundances found within the Earth, Seas, Sky and Space. To also connect with the Ukraine / Russia invasion and the Nord Stream Pipeline (please see blog-posts below).
I have often argued for the better practices and productions of oil / crude oil, especially for health and safety. But the truth is that I am not a professional environmentalist / oil / natural gases / resources specialist. Given the need for expertise and advices from specialists and skilled workers. But I am able to write upon with a philosophical view as a concerned individual.
But even if we draw parallels of the harmful impacts / effects of oil / chemical spills. I think that the proud histories of railway formations, the ability to travel back and forth via rail is important to include. This also connects well to the development of roads, the automobile, bikes and all methods of transportations.
