LA used to have a great streetcar system, electric light rail, fast, clean, long ago, just guess what happened to it.

Yup... you got it, that.

And we are still paying the price in wars for oil today.

I was watching the launch of Tesla's tunnel and found it hilarious that all he's done is create a flippin guided roadway.

Adelaide has one with tunnels https://www.adelaidemetro.com.au/Timetables-Maps/Special-Services/Adelaide-O-Bahn

and  without tunnels in Cambridge https://www.thebusway.info/

And my home Towns Luton and Dunstable https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luton_to_Dunstable_Busway
(sorry - the local busway site does not work now - local council stupidity at it's finest!)

And he has a good point, all these 'gadgetbahn' proposals end up looking like trains, which is the supposedly 'obsolete' technology the new system will replace. At least with the guided busways in Adelaide they're still using ordinary service buses with that scheme and they've got a pretty good set up with the 'night bus' routes provided you get to the stops in time otherwise it's a long wait between buses.

It's also nice to see someone on that side of politics calling out nonsense like Elon Musks and Solar 'effing' roadways.
