Okay so, as a free-market thinker and retired entrepreneur I’m the final particular person on this planet who would recommend we’d like extra rules on trade or enterprise. Actually, I consider that's what’s inflicting the issue in the USA with the unemployment charges, and why our economic system is faltering. Neverheless, I do notice there are some actual issues with noise air pollution, particularly one noise which issues me is the vibrational power and squalting of railcars in the USA. Let me clarify.
First, do you know that a prepare with 100 vehicles on it absolutely loaded truly registers one level on the Richter scale? I guess you didn’t know that, or possibly you probably did, possibly you’re a seismologist. However why does this prevalence, the railway system in the USA is just about the identical because it was 100 years in the past, not a lot has modified, it seems that by now we'd've taken care of the noise subject, particularly after cities have been constructed up round railroad tracks as our inhabitants has elevated.
Now then, I’m not one to assist nationalized healthcare or socialism, nevertheless if we’re headed down that path, and my tax are paying for different individuals's healthcare, then I’m involved with the noise air pollution inflicting severe human well being points. If individuals don’t get evening's sleep, they’re extra apt to have seizures, get most cancers, and their immune techniques don’t run at optimum, and due to this fact all kinds of different issues can occur. If individuals don’t get evening's sleep, they’re extra simply depressed, and their productiveness at work slows down, together with their reminiscences.
Typically we don’t want extra regulation, however we do want an answer to this downside. There are a number of that I'd like researchers in the USA to contemplate. The Division of Transportation does fund analysis similar to the Division of Power's analysis funds program. We will repair this downside, typically by altering out the rails to carbon nanotube building, or these massive metal wheels. Typically we are able to create some form of buffering system that may accumulate the noise power and vibrations, and use it to energy up railroad crossings, lighting, or put that power again onto the grid.
You see, friction noise and vibrational power is wasted power, it’s a byproduct of that prepare shifting down the monitor. It took power to get that prepare going, and now that power is being wasted by creating sound and vibration. We purchased to be taking that vibrational power gathering it, and reusing it, there isn’t any want for the noise. From a philosophical standpoint, additionally from a primary physics standpoint, so my pondering right here is right. Certainly I requested her to please contemplate all this and suppose on it.
