“There is No Planet B”
Earth is the only possible Home to Mankind. It is not a good idea to poison ourAtmosphere with CO2.
The VacTrain can help to reduce the Carbon Emissions of Transportation by over 20% (1’000’000’000 tons annually)
Whilst simultaneously improving the Speeds (travel time) and the Quality of Service for the General Public.
The VacTrain is environmentally friendly, climate neutral and fully sustainable. It does not use Lithium, Cobalt, etc. and it does not impact the environment during construction or operation. It is expected to draw Traffic away from Short-Haul Aviation and Intercity Highways and this can reduce the CO2 Emissions of the industry by over 20% or 1’000’000’000 Tons annually (NB: Aviation accounts for 11% / Cars 40% / Trucks 34% / Shipping 11% / Trains 4% of CO2 Emissions of Transportation). Oil consumption will be reduced in a similar magnitude. Getting passengers on a competitive CO2-Neutral system like the VacTrain is the most effective way to reduce transportation related emissions. In contrast, it makes little sense to pollute the atmosphere and then promise to clean it up with Carbon Capture, CO2 Compensations, Carbon Taxes, so-called Biofuels, etc. These are questionable and it can be proven with some simple Maths and Physics that they cannot possibly resolve the Climate Crisis.
Our systems and technology will be made available to all countries of the world. Immediate global action is necessary and Switzerland is leading the way with SwissMetro-NG (see next page). Initiatives to increase the market-share of Public Transportation as a means to improve Services and reduce CO2 Emissions were already successfully launched in parliament:
Switzerland and most Countries of the world (total 197 parties) are already committed to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change (UN-FCCC) and are thus expected to adopt similar legislation and realise corresponding construction projects.
With the VacTrain, Sustainability and Carbon Neutral ultra-fast Intercity Travel can become a reality sooner rather than later.
