Transportation Efficiency v. Safety: The Debate on Oil Transportation Continues

The transportation of oil, gas, and other hydrocarbons certainly has sparked debate.  All methods have its own sets of benefits and safety issues and concerns.  Arkansans are certainly familiar with the Mayflower pipeline break and spill that occurred earlier this year. Alabama citizens now are watching the last of the flames from a oil rail line accident and spill.  Efficiency, safety, and cost certainly play into the debate in some way.  

 
I would be interested in hearing reader opinions on the hotly contested issue related to the transportation of oil and this article on rail transportation and the recent derailment in Alabama will set the stage.  Is pipeline transportation safe, or just relatively safe compared to the alternatives?
