What I don't agree with is the money being spent on a ridiculous bullet train that is going to have no impact on reducing emissions from automobiles.  That has been proven.  The project needs to be stopped immediately and the funds need to be diverted to building as many desalination plants as possible.  We're in a drought and we have the largest body of water in the world right next to us.
