It has been asserted by those on the Left, that simple transportation of energy resources offers unacceptable risks to the community-at-large.
Here is an article that underlines that assessment. (From The Chronicle, August 22, 2008.)
Fortunately, the device obviously fizzled. But that does not let off the hook those who were responsible for transporting this dangerous energy source in the first place.
The lessons here are evident: thou shalt not attempt to transport any form of energy. (Now I am waiting for the creation of a police state.)
This should point out for baby-boomers--or wannabee boomers--just how dangerous this energy transportation thing is. That the person(s) attempting this crime failed, I am sure that the American "Can Do" spirit will raise its head, until either we are left to pick-up the pieces, or simply to pick up pieces of the Left. To show us how dangerous the transportion of energy resources really is. To warn us. To instruct us.
