One of the most telling aspects of America's declining standing in the world is its lack of progress on high speed rail. The United States is falling way, way behind China--who's building a high speed rail system that will make it the envy of the world. President Obama's administration realized this and has unveiled a multi-phase plan to link every city in the country via bullet train by 2030. The national system channels the same vision that saw the US create the world's most intricate rail system in the 1800's, laying the foundation for the economic dominance we still feel today. If we can complete this ambitious plan by even 2040, we'll have created the clean energy transportation system that will carry us well into the 22nd century.
