Mindlessly speeding ahead with the bullet train

It never fails to amaze me how many major projects are approved with little or no awareness of the actual impact of the project.

The proposed Palmdale-to-Burbank link of the bullet train traverses several known earthquake faults — and likely many unknown, unmapped faults.

The proposed route will negatively impact production at the Disney Ranch with noise and vibration. That expansion has recently been approved by the county supervisors to help keep an iconic California industry in state.

The route will not stop in the Santa Clarita Valley, so we have the problems of the bullet train with none of the benefits.
Voters did approved construction of the bullet train, but the cost has increased exponentially since that vote. That is called a material difference and should void the contract.

It amazes me that government, on all levels, pays little or no concern to those of us who actually pay for these fantasies!
