Texas is building ports and infrastructure for moving fossil fuels while California failed in attempt to update 19th century transportation
Texas industries and governments are combining to build an engine of trade to deliver oil and LNG in huge quantities to the world and to the US. Texas companies would build even more infrastructure to deliver natural gas to chilly northern states if Big Green was not blocking the effort. In California, with few people blocking a rail line it got bogged down in regulations and cost overruns that it could not overcome. It was a project that Sarah Palin correctly labeled the "bullet train to bankruptcy."
