America needs Maglev trains!!!!!
I've been doing more and more reading on this technology and I think we need to envision a country where instead of flying from LA to NY you hop on a high speed maglev train that spirits you there at over 300 mph.
They use electromagnetic energy so they are clean and effecient when compared to jet travel. The airline lobby must be scared to death of this technology.
Below is just a snipit of the article, click the link and read the whole thing
Maglev is a completely new mode of transport that will join the ship, the wheel, and the airplane as a mainstay in moving people and goods throughout the world. Maglev has unique advantages over these earlier modes of transport and will radically transform society and the world economy in the 21st Century. Compared to ships and wheeled vehicles—autos, trucks, and trains—it moves passengers and freight at much higher speed and lower cost, using less energy. Compared to airplanes, which travel at similar speeds, Maglev moves passengers and freight at much lower cost, and in much greater volume. In addition to its enormous impact on transport, Maglev will allow millions of human beings to travel into space, and can move vast amounts of water over long distances to eliminate droughts.
