Future of high speed 760 mph ground transportation

The rest of the World is taking greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution seriously and moving to less polluting modes of transportation.

 

BUT and this is a BIG BUT - NOT San Diego County! 

The County's new expanding McClellan-Palomar Airport (CRQ) Master Plan will dump tons and tons more GHG into our atmosphere?

 

Who's protecting our health and quality of life?

Not our County Board of Supervisors nor our City Council Members!

Contact your County Board Member and ask the hard WHY questions!

With the paradigm shifting in "Self-Driving" environmental friendly transportation,

San Diego County's reasons to expand CRQ are no longer valid!

Meet the Self-Driving Vehicle Future - Starting Late 2019 

Nov. 2017 - General Motors announced it's self-driving ride-sharing Chevy Bolt.   The self-driving service will  first arrive on the streets of San Francisco, CA beginning late 2019, followed by New York City, NY in 2020.

Why are automakers racing to develop fully autonomous vehicles and mobility services?  The simple answer is money.

 

In 2017, Goldman Sachs predicted the global ride-hailing market could be worth $285 Billion by 2030.  Removing the driver from the business model would improve the profit from $65 Billion to $220 Billion.  The Goldman Sachs article predicted automakers operating fully autonomous vehicles could see $14,000 profit over three (3) years or nine (9) time the average profit they make by selling a single vehicle.

Trucks

The Transportation World's future (including Regional Air Travel) is changing!  BUT, rather than looking into this future, San Diego County seems stuck in the past with its plan to expand McClellan-Palomar Airport into a lot, lot, lot more GHG polluting airport!  WHY?

Tax dollars are precious and the County Board of Supervisors has a fiduciary responsibility not to squander those dollars and protect its citizens health and quality of life.
