Only $40k/mile. Graffiti artists will have a field day and I can't wait for the unintended consequences.

meanwhile their dams collapse and bridges collapse but painting a street that will be defaced immediately and the paint will not last near as long as predicted if the street has any traffic. I assume wheel spinning on the street is against the law as it would make it black again..... racist!!!!!

Wonderful idea :roll: maybe they can get some welfare kings and queens jobs to do this. I doubt there’s much traing to spread paint.

I have a friend who had a family cabin deep in the woods. They had no hot water heater so they put a black pvc pipe on the roof, pumped water into it, and it heated the water enough for showers.

So, I guess this means I understand the power of color on heat, but unless all the car tires were white I think they will be dark gray soon.

FWIW, I've never seen a white street in LA. Not sure how many of these actually exist. In our neighborhood, if the streets get to hot, we just open up the hoses on then and let 'em rip. Water shortage my butt.

That can't possibly be a net win for the climate, can it? The trucks they are hauling it in produce pollution. They probably produce greenhouse gasses when they make the stuff. And there's the potential of runoff on the rare occasion it rains. This just doesn't seem like a net win.

It's not actually paint. It's a sealant. Asphalt has to be sealed on a regular basis, so they are using this product instead of standard asphalt sealant. The CoolSeal they are using is water based, while most sealants are polymer based, so the runoff effect is more environmentally friendly. No net impact from the trucks since they have to haul whatever sealant they're using anyway. Same with the production, no net impact.
And by using reflective surfaces, it reduces ground temps, which means less heat coming from the ground at night, which lowers A/C bills.
It's a trial to test the actual impacts, I don't see why anyone has an issue with testing out things like this.

Most asphalt paved roads are not sealed.

The whole thing is probably just a crony kick-back to the friends/family of bureaucrats.

My question is how this can be safe? If the paint isn't porous, it will become slippery as hell when it gets wet. If it is porous, it will become stained in no time (waste of money).

yes people seal their driveways as they do not get the wear and tear roads do and do not have to be re-paved as normal roads do. Roads and streets do not get sealed, they pave them, then the wear and tear create problems and they are re-paved, never sealed. My issue is the wasted dollars spent for it, total waste. The earth is changing, painting some roads white at a large dollar expenditure will do nothing to stop the planet from changing

I don't see how a water soluble solution would be better as it'll dissolve and run into the water system where as an alcohol based one won't.

Oh good- it's free right? doesn't cost the taxpayer a dime? I'm sure. And you ask why "anyone" would have an issue wasting a colossal amount of money. Think about that when your state taxes get raised to pay for this disaster.

I'm not pretending, or claiming anything. It's a trial. If it works, and they produce in larger quantities, price goes down.
It's supposed to increase the durability of the roads, and it is skid tested.

I'm definitely skeptical, but it's funny watching people get their panties in a wad over a trial. I know, California. It's a huge trigger for some folks.

Trial? Give me a break. How are they going to judge effectiveness at combating goreball whining? :lol:

That must be some good kool-aid.

I know you have to actually pay taxes to be irritated when they are wasted, so it is good to know that you are a taker, not a giver. I have to prepare for your detailed response now.....
