Jess Dervin-Ackerman on Oil Trains in the Bay Area

Description 
"We actually shouldn’t be investing billions of dollars in new infrastructure that’s not safe or that will cause harm and it will also contribute to climate change," said Jess Dervin-Ackerman of the Sierra Club.  "That’s just a completely false choice and I think we should actually be inverting these billions of dollars in local renewable energy, energy efficiency, you know, other lower carbon fuels."
