We need to transport oil somehow

Regarding your article, “Trains carry oil and risk,” [May/June 2014]: Out of one side of protectionists’/preventionists’ mouths we hear: “Oh, we must break our dependence on foreign oil.” “Oh, we must learn to use more renewable energy recources…”, “Oh, etc., etc., etc.”

On the other side we hear that we cannot transport oil by pipeline, train, ship or truck. Do you recommend a bucket brigade? As to renewables, we hear, “Don’t build wind farms, solar farms, burn wood or, heaven forbid, hydro plants.”
