California and HSR - Needed or NOT..
To answer why you in California will need High Speed Rail, your airplanes will be grounded in about 15 years or less, is the answer. The cost of fuel is already making most airlines unprofitable, and the cost is going up as more and more Chinese, Indians, Africans, South Americans, Asians, etc., get wealthy and purchase heaters, cars, etc. that use fossil fuels and is putting a drain on the supply, which increases the cost.
Most of the Oil today is in Russia, not Mexico or Canada, or in the USA or middle-east, and these countries need it for THEIR people. President Obama and most of the intelligent people in America see the writing on the walls and know our days of cheap and abundant oil are numbered. Railroads can run on Electricity which can be generated by coal, solar, wind, water, etc., and will be the ONLY inexpensive transportation by the year 2035. It will take much longer than that to connect most American Cities, even if we start NOW, so America should STOP delaying what will be needed, embrace it, be part of it, make money from it
Arizona, Texas, and California:
Arizona has started on a Phoenix to Tucson and back High-Speed rail line. California has embarked on a San Francisco to San Diego High-Speed rail line, and Texas announced in December of 2014 that it would create a High-Speed rail line between some of its major cities.
Each of these are Private / Public funded enterprises, the Corporate World has finally realized that High-Speed Rail is here to stay, and has found a means of making a profit from it.
