The pollution issue in California is a function of the coastal geography so a local solution is the most logical. Light weight electric velomobiles could help address the congestion and pollution problem if they could be taken aboard mass transit. So far no one has built one with AC that I have heard. Secession talk is alive and well here in upstate NY. Several counties along the PA border have expressed interest in joining PA over the fracking ban. A Canadian civil servant I met told me their single payer system would not work in the States- our administrators don't carry enough about the people. Electric vehicles may be twice as efficient but cost twice as much and go half the distance. A fill up at a gas station takes about 10 minutes. We can cast iron and machine parts in our basements and barns if we have to.
