Comments Off on First China, US highspeed rail will connect Las Vegas and Los Angeles in 80 minutes flat

Travelers wanting to get from Las Vegas to Los Angeles – and vice versa – could see a drastic reduction in the amount of time needed for that trip, thanks to a high-speed train set to break ground next year . A partnership between a private US company and China Railway Group will bring a 150 mph rail that will carry passengers along the 230-mile journey in around 80 minutes. That’s a mega improvement over the four hours it takes to drive the same distance. Read the rest of First China, US highspeed rail will connect Las Vegas and Los Angeles in 80 minutes flat

Comments Off on Ford’s new smartwatch app lets drivers keep (very) close tabs on their electric car

While some automakers have released apps connecting owners to their electric cars via their smartphone, others are taking connectedness a step further. To people’s wrists. Ford has announced a new smartwatch app called MyFord Mobile that lets drivers check important data, like available driving range, straight from their Android Wear or Apple Watch .

Comments Off on Elon Musk announces plans to build a supersonic Hyperloop test track

When Elon Musk originally unveiled plans for the supersonic Hyperloop , he said that he didn’t plan to build it himself. Now the billionaire inventor has announced plans to construct a Hyperloop test track to help bring the next-gen transportation system to life. Musk announced the news on Twitter, as is his habit, saying that the test track will “most likely” be located in Texas. The Hyperloop is akin to a mega high-speed rail system, consisting of huge tubes mounted on tall pylons, with capsules to carry passengers at the speed of sound. The super high-speed transit system may one day provide stiff competition for airlines, because it promises to move people from Point A to Point B in about half the time it takes to fly.

Comments Off on New study finds life on Earth at risk as humans are “eating away” at the planet

An international team of researchers has identified nine planetary boundaries that must be maintained in order to sustain life on earth as we know it. Of those nine, we have already crossed the thresholds of four in such as way as to “fundamentally change the functions of nature.” By “ degrading land and freshwater systems, emitting greenhouse gases and releasing vast amounts of agricultural chemicals into the environment ” we are, the researchers say “eating away at our own life support systems.” Read the rest of New study finds life on Earth at risk as humans are “eating away” at the planet Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: agriculture , Biodiversity , biosphere integrity , carbon emissions , Climate Change , Davos , ECO:nomics , global warming , planetary boundaries , scripps

Comments Off on China Unveils Plans to Build an 8,000-Mile High-Speed Underwater Railway Line to America

It sounds like an April Fool’s joke, but from what we can tell, the Chinese government is completely serious about their latest high speed rail project. According to multiple news outlets, China plans to build an 8,000+ mile railroad (sounds plausible) connecting China, Russia, Canada, and the U.S. that includes a 125 mile undersea tunnel spanning the Bering Strait! The plan was announced in China’s state-run newspaper, the Beijing Times , and apparently Russia is already on-board with the plan. While it would be nice to travel from China to America in two days without setting foot in a single airport, engineers around the globe are skeptical.

Comments Off on Basque Activists Create Green Graffiti on a Hillside to Petition the Construction of a High Speed Train

Villagers in the French-Basque region have found a creative way of expressing their discontent with a new railway to be constructed on a picturesque hillside at the foot of La Rhune mountain. Residents “green graffitied” the words ‘EZAHT LGV NON’ (no to the LGV ) in an attempt to be heard and seen. The huge words are grown with grass right at the site where the new tracks for the high-speed train are to be constructed.
