Just another Energy rant.

High Flying Hybrid

This was a great article. Can you imaging a cross between a blimp and a plane. Something that is faster than a truck but still uses less fuel than either the same number of trucks or a plane. I hope that this technology proves that it's worth the cost. A company should be able to ship a lot more than they can with this method than they can with trucks now. It not only has the potential for the immediate national energy savings that can be imagined from the reduced fuel consumption, but it could reduce the number of trucks on the road. Who wouldn't want to have less semis out there to deal with during rush hour traffic? Now if we can just make trains faster and more efficient we could reduce the trucks on the road even more.
