It found a mature high speed rail system would use less energy and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions.</p><p>Researchers accounted for more fuel efficient cars and planes in the future. And they looked at different levels of ridership when calculating greenhouse gas emissions.</p> Thu, 26 Jul 2012 22:31:36 +0000 Amy Quinton 1287 at http://kvpr.org Study Suggests Environmental Benefits From High Speed Rail
