This would solve everything.


Video Rendering of the Maglev System

This is the Interstate Traveler Hydrogen Superhighway. This is a rail system of magnetically levitated containers that can carry people, cars, freight, and well, pretty much anything at high speed. The containers will travel like packets of data travel over the internet, mathematically spaced for optimal speed and efficiency. The rails will be built along America’s interstate freeway system, all 54,000 miles. Along the entire rail line will be solar panels and electrolysis stations that will generate “3.4 quadrillion Btu of power.” It solves the American energy crisis for the next 3 decades. Here is a cutaway of how the rail itself will be able to generate power, and carry data, fluid, and electricity across the country through its conduit cluster:

The rail system would be constructed of steel to save our wilting steel industry. Because these rail lines are built along the interstate, this inherently creates a charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.  And the system is capable of doing so much more than that. Here is the ITC website.

Still not convinced, listen to Timm Finfrock, chairman of ITC and PhD:

“You just go out and build it, and do it, and then let them try to stop you.” pretty good quote

Even better, this company is based in Detroit, Michigan, and I hear that city is looking for jobs.

  1. Right on! Well done, Dr. Finfrock! As a fellow partner in the Interstate Traveler Company, I concur with every word.

    Here’s what our friends can do right now: the presidential transition office has put out a call for ideas about the environment and economy. Send a quick email that you think that the Interstate Traveler Hydrogen Superhighway is a solid, readily available component in our larger national recovery. President-elect Obama already knows about the Interstate Traveler but needs a nudge in our direction to issue a public statement of support and to encourage his new cabinet secretaries, especially Bill Richardson at Commerce, to do likewise. Such a statement would free up investment capital to begin immediate construction of the prototype with full-scale implementation just a few months after that.

    We have created a new video to help raise awareness:

    You also may enjoy listening to my telephone interviews with Justin Sutton, creator of the Interstate Traveler Hydrogen Superhighway. They cover the vision and the ancillary benefits including the Triage Traveler mobile trauma center, the Hydroponic Traveler, the Grand Arbor Traveler and the ability of the conduit cluster to replace aging and inefficient high-tension power lines.

  2. This is great stuff…and let’s hope that the good Doctor has a better reception from the new, far more intelligent, administration. Growing up in Michigan and near Detroit I remember the rail system that spidered through the area toward the Ford Rouge plant. There was a lot of arched columns that Henry Ford planned to use for an elevated rail system of the future…but sadly he never saw that come to fruition. That was a glimpse into a future as is the mission of the ITC.

    We are supporting that mission and have a story and link to their site on our blog at Keep up the great work….build it anyway, find the money…in fact talk to Boone Pickens…he has mobilized a million people and could help.
