. . . compared with that already affecting the biosphere. The Earth is suffering from a continuous onslaught, the likes of which humans have never experienced.

Around £30,000,000,000 has been ear-marked for road-maintenance and road-extensions. Both private and commercial vehicles pound these tarmac-surfaced networks across the country; the means of transporting people are both inefficient and effective. Inefficient --vastly so-- in that many a car moves one person: imagine a delicate dolly-bird of 50 kg using her 2,500 kg-car for driving around. Looking along the lines off traffic crawling along a motorway, each car inevitably carries one person.
**Let us say that the average proportion in terms of weight person-to-vehicle is
100 kg per 1,500 kg vehicle. In any scientific discipline, that is a 'device' that would have been discarded long ago on grounds of inefficiency.
But all vehicles for private or commercial use are effective. They spew obnoxious stuff out of their rear-ends: this virtually invisible cloud is sucked into cars and lorries; into road-side houses; and pedestrians with children on road-side pavements breathe this stuff. Daily.
**The stuff contains a range of nano-particles, the smallest of which can enter the blood-stream and even the brain - and other organs.
**Worse, are the range of nano-particles that result from both tyre-friction with road-surfaces and from brake systems. All toxic stuff.
**Very effective in polluting the environment.

With 'C O P 26' due to be hosted by the U. K. government, it is vital that we take drastic steps in counter-acting our destruction of the place in which we live. To this end, a comprehensive network of public transport has to be developed: trains, trams, buses interlinked in a system where one can call for short-distance or long-distance journeys.
Fossil-fuelled transport will be replaced by an array of people-transport modules.
Private cars will be the exception, rather than the rule: children playing on the streets again!
Heavy batteries for power? Our grid would be up to a challenge!
**Hydrogen will be the power-source for all road vehicles. After all, this has currently 60% efficiency; petrol 25%.
>>We must ensure that fossil fuel is not used to make hydrogen! Wind and/or tidal energy would be the friendliest to the environment.

**Hike up car tax annually to pay for this public, nationwide transport system.
A system for the public and belonging to the public and not to a group of private owners sucking money into their own personal coffers (as is the case for many of the U. K. utilities.)

Far too long. Can you summarise in 5 sentences?
Can't you handle a well present topic bobbs?
// Hydrogen will be the power-source for all road vehicles. After all, this has currently 60% efficiency; petrol 25%. //

not yet, there needs to be an alternative storage method before that happens. it may be more efficient, but the amount of energy stored in any given quantity of fossil fuel requires a volume many times less than the equivalent volume of the same amount of hydrogen energy. at this time, any hydrogen powered vehicle will require to tow a huge trailer just to sustain itself.
Well present?
The final paragraph says it all.
How do you deal with the elite super rich?
You mean the share holders like are pension schemes glitter & theland?
i switched off when i got to "delicate dolly-bird"
I switched off when i got to biosphere
Skimming through, it looks like a recipe for riots to me.
The real issue, as is often the case, is overpopulation.
