There's Oil on Main Street
Lovaas writes that "An aggressive expansion of transit in cities and suburbs, for example, could save us almost 4 million gallons of oil each day by 2030."
Lovaas takes a closer look at a new, more energy-efficient light rail currently being tested by Dallas Rapid Transit (DART):
"This prototype can run on overhead electrical lines as well go five miles on a rechargeable battery. It also uses regenerative braking technology, which conserves power by channeling braking energy back to the battery."
