Cool, this sounds really good and It's kind off a bit like the UK's version the HS2?

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”

Glad to see a new public project for once like this. Acela is also upgrading systems between Boston and DC to get speeds closer to 200 mph (322 km/h).

"Since we first emerged, a few million years ago in East Africa, we have meandered our way around the planet. There are now people on every continent and the remotest islands, from pole to pole, from Mount Everest to the Dead Sea, on the ocean bottoms and even, occasionally, in residence 200 miles up - humans, like the gods of old, living in the sky."

Update: California's high-speed railway has become a punchline for government waste, duplicity, and incompetence.

So, what would be necessary to actually make this happen?

Skynet resumes work on the project in 2090, using a 100% machine work force.

Can't we raise IQs before that point in time?

If Californians had higher IQs, they never would have allowed the rail line project to begin.

Assuming it's self-sufficient, the project will be completed within a matter of weeks if not days for next to no cost (other than resources, of course).


What are you without the sum of your parts?

California High-Speed Rail is a project I've watched for years. It's a real pitty how goverment waste and corruption have cast doubt on High-Speed Rail. It only needs to be finished and come online to prove its enormous potential.

 

High-Speed Rail is a proven method of transportation, implemented in many countries, that ease congestion, reduces emissions, provides quality service. High-Speed Rail can definetely work in California, where economy, population and growth can both sustain and support a High-Speed Rail system. I hope there will be a new agreement between State and Federal goverment in order to secure funds necessary for the project.

For better of for worse, my California tax dollars at work, or not.
