EurActiv - Letters to the Editor


Regarding ‘Barroso II must turn carbon cuts into growth‘:

You say climate campaigners are arguing that the European Commission must support energy efficiency and renewables rather than nuclear and clean coal.

This is true of some climate campaigners, but not all. Some of us now accept that the climate crisis is so great that we need all of them.

However well we do on energy efficiency, Europe will not be 100% renewable until 2040 at the earliest, so we need low-carbon bridge technologies, including nuclear and carbon capture and storage (‘clean coal’ is not a good name for this, as it won’t be totally clean, but it will be low carbon.)

    Traffic Engineering our future – Economic Forecast Maglev –
    Growth – Infrastructure – Logistics – Environment – Labor IAT provide more thousand new jobs !
    “Double Transrapidsystem IAT- MAGLEV-TEAM” 300,000 m2 of solar cells

    Chance at a new beginning
    Dear Sir or Madam,

    welcome to IAT-Maglev, the new doubledecker maglev-system.

    if you are interested in a more environmentally friendly transport system in our new future in whatever form, to work with,
    and possibly a network of promoters to build, we would return to a brief expressing very grateful and pleased.

    Our contact and the demand of a possible cooperation in the matter of “Traffic Engineering our Future” offers you the chance to
    use your personal commitment to you and your institute / company with as much as prestigious institution in a world economic project.

    Innovative Access Team have further developed Germany‘s Transrapid system.
    Undoubtedly, maglev trains have the potential to solve future transportation problems.
    Maglev means clean technology at affordable prices, quick transportation solutions and a prestigious undertaking.
    The new IAT-maglev saves space, time and energy due to its construction and innovative energy supply system powerd by solar energy.

    Here, you can learn about IAT‘s new vision of a maglev that has significant advantages over its predecessor. Issues, such as advanced safety, minimisation of noise pollution, the parallel transport of people and goods, lowest usage of energy possible add to a high economically efficiency. Costs shall be kept at the lowest level possible.
    Here on our site, you can learn everything about our vision of environmentally friendly transport.

    New development of the Transrapid-System

    Maglev is a profund innovation for the transportation of the future and has long been established. We took the idea further in order to make everything more efficient and effective, whilst trying to minimise costs.

    Our tracks will be able to accompany some 300,000 m2 of solar cells within every 100 km length.

    In addition to the standards of the existing maglev-system, IAT has developed a range of new ideas:

    1. Minimisation of noise pollution
    2. Increase of safety through unmanned drones
    3. Carriers will be able to transport goods.
    4. Our systems protects the environment
    5. Lowest use of energy possible
    6. Great economic useability through reducing amounts of investment
    7. No crashes through single direction tracks
    8. Coaches can easily be changed without additional tracks
    9. IAT‘s double decker maglev is a prestige object!

    Our environmentally friendly approach and the double decker system are both novelties and will add to the existing prestige of a functioning maglev system.

    Therein, we try to give you an overview of our idea. Travel with us into the future. Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    The paths were thus preparing for a second time, the polics must now decide how the choices they will make.

    Please let us know whether you are interested in participating, in case of a positive reply your supportive attendance during the
    presentation would be valuable and desirable.

  2. carbon capture and nuclear to save the climate?? welcome to lobbyland!

    to know more about nuclear energy, please watch these few and recent videointerviews with international specialists about the myths of nuclear energy (in france and elsewhere).

    (Interview with Andre Lariviere, member of Reseau Sortir du Nucleaire)

    (Interview with Mr. Tanay Sidki Uyar (TR), President of EUROSOLAR

    Both interviews were made in Svishtov/Bulgaria, at the Pan-European energy Summit, in late August this year.
    Svishtov is located near BELENE; the construction site of an unnecessary, expensive and dangerous nuclear power plant in Bulgaria. Watch a video from a visit on the spot:

    thank you!
