If I were young, motivated, and wealthy, or even a politician, I would be trying to implement a coast-to-coast monorail much like the great railroads of the past.
I believe we could use the existing interstates and run right down the middle. We could use the electrical pulse method or the magnetic push method. We could actually try to catch up with Europe and Japan in this method of transportation.
Let's step into the future by using the sun and wind. Let's gear golf carts to run 40 mph and use them as transportation locally and reserve our big SUV's and cars for the interstates.
What the heck, let's start by building a monorail from Augusta to Atlanta.
