In the 18th century, water power dominated in Britain, most power came from watermills and canals were built to transport coal and other goods around the country. This age of water power was followed in the 19th century by steam power, railways were build the length and breadth of Britain. The 20th century saw railways become less fashionable and road transport dominated. Now in the 21 century we see recession, not just in the UK but around the world.
We look to nature to provide us with everything we need. Science and technology has exploited nature and we have transport systems and communications systems that would have been unheard of a hundred years ago. The technology that goes into the average car involves materials, fuel, electrical, paint, hydraulics and electronics. The technology gets more and more diverse and sophisticated. Soon we will have computer and communication links in our cars. We already tend to use satellite technology to find our way. Soon we will have far more information at our disposal and all voice controlled as we drive. Maybe one day we can travel without even driving? Beam me up, Scotty!
