If It's True, The Carbon Argument May Be Moot

Cheryl sent me this one:

China Claims Fusion Breakthrough

Now wouldn't that be something if we really did get reliable, cheap energy like that? I think it would be a major-league world-changing event.

And hey, I might even withdraw my objections to maglev, although I still think that conventional electrification gets you most of what you'd want from high speed rail anyway.

Kevin of the Phone Force Strikes Again, Unfortunately

Just before leaving my office this evening, I checked traffic reports and found that it was wall-to-wall and <25 MPH nearly all the way down the stretch of US-101 over which I was going to drive due to a couple of accidents. So I decided to go have dinner at a Mexican restaurant in Belmont that I like and take my time about it to let the traffic clear out. An hour or so later, I headed home.

So while I wasn't involved personally in the accident, I was stuck in the back up, and was able to provide eye-witness news for KCBS traffic again. I hope some people heard the report and went the long way around or took the San Mateo Bridge instead. I was only delayed maybe 20-30 minutes, I guess.

Edit, 23:05: Corrected at which end of the bridge the accident happened.
