20new e group
- Jun 3, 2000To: all my contacts, and members of e-groups that I believe would
have an interest in a new e-group: Advanced Transportation
From: Daryl Oster (et3@...), moderator of this new group.
Together, we learn from, and contribute to each other's knowledge
experience. The Advanced Transportation (AT) e-group is the place to
learn and share information about advanced transportation
technologies. It is my desire to contribute to the advancement of
transportation in any way that I can. I live in Florida USA, I
desire to travel the world more. In the next few months I will be
adding files and links relating to AT.
Advanced Transportation is needed by all. Transportation is
fundamental to survival. If we can't get to food and water; or if
food and water is not transported to us; we die. Transportation
advances allow us to live the way we do. With every advance in
transportation comes a boost in the standard of living. The roman
road doubled the standard of living in the BC era. The sailing ship
doubled the standard of living in the 15th century. In the
early 1800s the steam ship doubled the standard of living for
Americans. In the mid 1800s the train; the automobile around 1890,
the airplane in 1903,the jet in the 1950s etc. all contributed to the
lifestyle we enjoy.
We are past due for the next advance. Without another advance, our
lifestyle will suffer. This is because our current transport systems
sustainable for all the worlds' population. Our existing systems
have taken us to the point where the cost is too great for the gain.
The cost of clean air, of clear water, the cost of lives of wildlife
and people. We must change, but the change must advance. Bicycles
are great for the environment, but think about it, they cannot
sustain the lifestyle we know is available.
Everyone relies on transportation for survival and communication.
Cell phones are great; "being there" is best. Television or
Internet cannot supply a warm hug, wet kiss, fresh mango, or bouquet
of jasmine. The world needs a quantum improvement in transportation;
so humankind may more fully experience people, things, and
Advanced Transportation is the only way, and it is available. It is
mostly in your brain, our collective brain, waiting to get out in the
form of a written idea. That idea may be the piece of the puzzle for
some one else's idea; the sharing of ideas creates better ideas.
Ideas form into plans. Plans attract action. We can and must take
the best ideas, and make plans to act to save and protect the
environment, and our wonderful lifestyles at
the same time.
The purpose of the Advanced Transportation e group is to improve world
awareness of all advanced transportation technologies. Any input is
welcome, provided it relates to the topic, and is uplifting. Other
related topics that are appropriate for discussion include energy,
environment, ecology, sustainability, manufacturing technology, etc.
as long as it relates in some way to the advancement of
