Siemens and the South Coast Air Quality Management District have partnered together to build a $13 million experimental overhead centenary system that will run for one mile with the aim to reduce carbon emissions/pollution. The experimental system is being built along a mile of the Alameda corridor to test how highly polluting diesel truck traffic could instead run on emission-free electric power.

Yep, there's already a thread open here on the topic.

Truck Electrification System to be Tested at Ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach

I don't see much interest being shown in the subject, which is why you may have overlooked it.

It may cut down on air pollution... But it will sure increase eye pollution.

If you put "e" in front of something, you can get support from a lot of people who never think past the immediate result nor how that result was obtained.

Just look at how many projects and so one were failure at face value and later proved so but nevertheless burned through billions of taxpayer money under the excuse that doing something is better than nothing.

Doing the right thing is better than nothing. Just doing something without considering that is just wasted resources. Those who waste the billions, enrich themselves on the backs of those who blindly support anything and everything called "green" or "e" are rarely held accountable.

Why is that?
