Jerry Brown is building the ultimate thrill ride – a $70 billion 200 MPH train to nowhere, which crosses many major fault lines. Imagine the excitement crossing the San Andreas Fault at 200 MPH when they have a repeat of the 7.9 magnitude 1857 Fort Tejon earthquake, which caused 30 feet of horizontal displacement and ruptured the ground for 220 miles.
This was San Francisco after the 1906 low CO2 earthquake.
Southwest Airlines runs 500 MPH flights between LA, Oakland, San Jose, Sacramento and San Francisco about every 10 minutes, so I am sure the 200 MPH train to nowhere running every few hours will prove to be extremely popular.
And of course it is much better for the state to waste $70 billion of taxpayer money, than to let the private sector keep the money and create a million new jobs or so. Think of the children.
