That thing is very cool. I read about a hydrogen powered plane that can
stay aloft for something like 96 hours. Perhaps a solar and microwave
powered high altitude drone used as a communications relay instead of
erecting immense antenna towers? The solar drone can fly high above any
weather and stay aloft indefinitely. I think it would be a slick way of
getting cellphone service to developing countries plus wide open parks
and wildlife preserves. ^_^

I do believe sat-phone service is quite a bit more expensive and doesn't
compare with cellphone service. ^_^

We'll just use progressives like harry for the biomass.
There is a plentiful and self-replenishing supply
And they're so full of shit, that they're already half-processed.
And considering how stupid and unproductive they are, no one will miss them.
We move plenty of freight by rail and I agree trains are not the way
to move anything you can pump. It is just passenger rail that doesn't
work for big areas in the US.
You still can't really get a grasp about how big this place is and haw
spread out the cities are.
England, Scotland and Wales is about the size of Florida with 3 times
the population clustered in cities that are within bicycle distance of
each other (or less than 2 kilotons apart in NATO terms)
