      I thought this might interest some members of Carfree_Cities:

      >Subject: [wtpp] new e group
      >
      >To: all my contacts, and members of e-groups that I believe would
      >have an interest in a new e-group: Advanced Transportation
      >
      >http://www.egroups.com/group/advanced_transportation
      >
      >From: Daryl Oster (et3@...), moderator of this new group.
      >
      >Together, we learn from, and contribute to each other's knowledge
      >and
      >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
      >are not
      >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
      >the
      >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
      >environment.
      >
      >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
      >transportation.
      >
      >If you are not interested in this group, don't worry, I am
      >sending it
      >to moderators for possible forwarding to their group. I do not spam,
      >either I or your moderator thought this was appropriate for the
      >stated purpose of your group. I am only sending this message once,
      >and only to those on my personal contact list or e groups that I
      >belong to. Thank you for your consideration.
