I've been wondering about the Amtrack train, and all the wrecks it gets involved in. I also know that we have a lot of faith in Chinese technology. That is where our money goes when we want the best.

 

Our Amtrack train has a top speed of 150 mph, but is dangerous at that speed. 

 

Nevertheless, the Chinese travel twice that speed, and experiences a lot less wreckage. 

 

It's no wonder we like Chinese stuff.

Not all trains are created equal. :)  Some are far safer.  I like safer, myself! 

 

 

 

While I am nervous about high speed or driverless trains, maglev might be the safest, in spite of what happened in this video.

Automobiles and their use are responsible for more pollution and other environmental destruction, including the largest share of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, than any other human pursuit in the world. Cars also cause 40,000 human and 400,000,000 animal deaths every year in the US. Cars lead to suburban growth (= natural habitat destruction) and social isolation.

Our oil companies make more money than the Chinese, and another high-speed train developing countries while holding technology back in the United States, Ivy!

 

Decil engines power an electric system for the Amtrac train to run on. Big oil, in this country, is going to get their share of sell no matter what.
