That is because any government activity CAN be turned into a pork barrel. The issue of AGW or rail transport has NOTHING to do with it.

The answer is public participation in the role of government behind non government organizations such as the Sierra Club that can monitor and blow the whistle on government waste.

That said, the major 'pork barrel' risk is from the PRIVATE companies selected to build and run the thing. THEY are totally concerned with the pork..
