And you listed two rail accidents, neither of which really provides authority for your headline, do they? One was a collision, the other a derailment. Are rail cars carrying Evil petroleum products somehow more likely to fall victim to common rail-transportation mishaps, or is something else going on, like rising traffic on particular rail lines increases the statistical probabilities of mishap generally? Given your supporting evidence, a better headline might be "Some things happened, there is a tangential connection to an energy source I am philosophically opposed to, so here's some politically biased correlation masquerading as journalism."
