I’m thinking about high-speed trains and the benefits it would provide the society. The last three days of plane less skies and volcano ash shows just how vulnerable we are when we rely on one primary way of transportation. Having high-speed trains between the major cities in Europe would make the infrastructure less vulnerable when natural catastrophes happens, because we would have more means of travel. Environmentally it’s also a great benefit, though the politicians might not see it that way since they would have to pay for it.
I would really like the debate about high-speed trains to come back now.
