On The Horizon
Time Magazine declares “… high-speed rail is an idea whose time has come… According to Environment America, high-speed rail uses a third less energy per mile than auto or air travel, and a nationwide system could reduce oil use by 125 million bbl. a year. In addition, high-speed rail represents the kind of long-term infrastructure investment that will pay back for decades, just as the interstate highway system of the 1950s has.”
In January 2010, President Barack Obama announced $8 billion for development of high speed rail in designated corridors throughout the country. California, Nevada and Florida, using a mix of public and private funding sources, appear poised to break ground in 2013, while other states are readying plans to follow suit.
