PRT Hucksters Infiltrate 350 Movement

The mission of 350.org:

350.org is an international campaign that's building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis--the solutions that science and justice demand.

Our mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis—to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet.

On another 350.org page:

The Advanced Transit Association group in northern Califonia (ATRA-NorCal) is sponsoring this event as an opportunity to stand up for a U. S. implementation of Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) which promises an efficient, demand-responsive public transit network with automated non-stop service available 24 hours a day. PRT systems are as easy to use as an elevator, and cost a fraction of Light Rail construction. The event will be used to highlight PRT advances and the upcoming Podcar Conference in San Jose(10/27-29). The event will be held at the park adjacent to the proposed PRT crossing of the railroad tracks in Milpitas (Parc Metro East). For details of the proposal, see http://www.electric-bikes.com/prt/ferry.html

And it gets worse...


The Jpods team will have an example of their cab and rail for people to ride. Learn more at jpods.com

That's right, Bill James and his JPOD, fresh from his hilarious performance at the Hennepin County Government Center a few weeks ago. Let's watch it again:

Here's Bill James pitching Jpods in Cupertino, California:

And each JPOD comes with its own "Support the Troops" ribbon:
