Rail transportation reduces our carbon footprint? Yah right.
How the hell does transporting a handful of people at a time, by mega-ton, diesel-powered and spewing trains "reduce carbon footprint"?
Sure, trains in densely populated urban areas, that (if) are regularly filled to the max with passengers MIGHT - might, reduce the carbon footprint.
But rural/remote trains with occasional and very small numbers of passengers?
