Podcast: Ohio Train Derailment – why isn’t it getting the attention it needs?

On 3 February, a Norfolk Southern freight train derailed in East Palestine, Ohio. The train was carrying 11 harmful chemicals including  vinyl chloride, butyl acrylate, benzene, ethyl hexyl acrylate and ethylene glycol monobutyl ether.  Although these chemicals are known to have detrimental, and sometimes deadly, effects to one’s health no one knows what effects they have once they are burned and become a gas as was the case in Palestine. Yet the President and VP have not been there to meet with the residents of this area or give any major announcements and it took the Transportation Secretary a couple of weeks to arrive.
