    You've used "zero emissions" and "net zero" back-to-back. To use the earlier Air Canada example, in 2021 they committed to net zero by...

    More specifically, VIA has very little say and choice in how it will decarbonize because that will be dictated by the freight rail...

    Good grief. Nobody ever boils an ocean. You can however eat an elephant, if you do it one steak at a time. Driving change is a matter...

    Trains are probably more efficient up to 800 km. But this is not the discussion we had. ssiguy keeps mixing up net zero with zero...

    The problem is that ssiguy and others of his ilk don't understand the difference between "net zero" and "zero emissions". They are not...

    1) You don't seem to understand the difference between goals and policy. They are not the same thing. There is zero mandate on VIA to...

    The question is how much energy is required to make ethanol from organic waste (which is typically low energy)? While it might (I'm not...

    If anyone sees any value in having VIA‘s P42s, he can buy and rebuild them! However, for VIA’s purposes, they are useless, as they will...

    It's both fantastic and scary how bureaucrats pile on when the tides turn. Only a few years ago, passenger rail was a non-starter. Now...

    Interesting. Makes a lot of sense. For example, there is no point having a train run at top speed to a siding where it will have to...

    The scope creep is getting ridiculous. Now it's 1000 km? We'll see in 2025, if this survives an election. I doubt it.
