After watching Jurassic World, the much-hyped sequel to Jurassic Park, Brian Scheid and Herman Wang break down the administration's recent crude-by-rail rule, especially the braking requirement, which has generated some of the most heated protest from the oil and rail industries. The new brakes might be better than the classic brakes, but the industries say the administration should have just left the original alone.
