Being entirely fair

If it is a failed continent, it's in part because the US has been fucking about the place for ages and messing it up for their own profit and political goals
There's a lot of bad shit down there, but it's at least got potential to become good with some effort. Unlike Africa or the Middle east that will always be shit, or India which needs a lot more effort

It's still cheaper, or more 'economical' to just make a shitload of single use plastic shit

And a lot of people still believe 'economy' more valuable than anything else in life
I'd call it insanity, but society has determined that these people are 'sane'

They could throw a thousand statues covered in lead paint every day for the next 50 years and the environmental impact would still be negligible compared to a continent-wide reduction of plastic waste.

Occasional-Cortex wants to ban air planes for the environment and replace them with high speed trains

How am i gonna take a train to puerto rico dumpass

I guess that's what happens when you let someone whos lived in a major metropolitan city their whole life try to come up with a transit plan i mean it only takes 2 minutes between subway stations in NEW YAWK how much longer can it be to get from NEW YAWK to LOS ANGELES

god

the city council where I am have caved to the fucking green party over the idea of a tax on parking spaces for employers and they're going on about it being good to "encourage" people to use public transport more

sucks for people who work night shifts or sundays when the public transport isn't fucking running but they've never worked anything other than a 9-5 weekday job in their lives so they assume that's the universal case

HURF DURF LOOK AT THIS ROAD PACKED WITH CARS NOW LOOK AT HOW MUCH LESS SPACE IT WOULD TAKE UP IF ALL THOSE PEOPLE GOT ON A SINGLE TRAIN because of course when I see a road full of cars I too assume that every single person on that road is going from the same place to the same place

b-b-b-but public transport is perfectly fine for ME therefore it's perfectly fine for EVERYONE ALL THE TIME

Probably

I actually love the idea of public transit being made more efficient, more encouraged, more used
But at the same time
I've been on LA buses, I've been on the NY subway
There is no dirtier place on this Earth than in public transit vehicles

Hire some fucking janitors, fuck

The problem is that they come at it with the stick approach instead of the carrot

I'd absolutely get rid of the car and save myself all the associated costs of keeping the fucking thing on the road if the public services were actually viable. Like if I've just come off a run of nights and I'm awake at three in the fucking morning and need to get my groceries in for the week, it'd be fucking stupid to lay on a regular all-night bus service for like the three guys in the entire town that would ever use it, but it'd be equally stupid to completely prevent the use of private vehicles to the point where they need to run a bus service in case someone needs to get somewhere at 3am.
Same with sunday timetables, they run a reduced timetable on those days for a fucking good economic reason, don't go pulling bullshit that makes it necessary to run a full timetable because whoops you've banned people from using their cars during the times public transit doesn't cover.

tl;dr if public transport actually covered everyone's circumstances more people would use it, but attempting to cover literally everyone's circumstances would end up being less efficient and more polluting than just letting them use their fucking cars

Over here, public transport works fine
Or fine-ish anyway. It's been getting steadily worse for decades now

But of course, to encourage public transit use the gov raises vehicle and fuel taxes
And then the next government decides to encourage vehicle ownership by raising tax on public transport fares
Repeat every time a new government gets in

Italian deputy prime minister met with a known French revolutionary and military coup advocate in the last of a long string of shows of support for the yellow jacket movement. France reacted by recalling their ambassador and diplomatic relations are as bad as they can be. The last time France did that it was 1940 and we had just declared war on them. Creating a foreign enemy is nationalism 101 and I guess we have one now.
