There are on average three train derailments in the United States every single day. That’s more than 1,000 derailments every year. Some are disasters. Trains derail while carrying dangerous chemicals or petroleum products, catch fire, contaminate land and ground water, lead to the death of farm animals, and sometimes even railroad employees and the public. On this episode of the Whistleblowers, John Kiriakou speaks with Union Pacific Railroad locomotive conductor and engineer, Michael Paul Lindsey, about why the United States is so far behind in the locomotive industry and his own whistleblowing experience.
