Federal highways subsidized replacing 400+ ton-mpg railroads with 25 mpg roads.

The unintended consequence was a loss of half the railroads, a century with the highway efficiency of the Model-T, Climate Change, and oil-wars.

The unintended consequences of Federal highway programs are:

  • Resource depletion, US Peak Oil was in 1970.
  • Foreign oil addiction that eight Presidents warned was a direct threat to national security.
  • Perpetual oil-wars since 1991.
  • Oil-dollar funded terrorist attacks on America, 9/11.
  • Nation debt increasing in tandem with oil imports between Peak Oil and the 2008 forclosure collapse of the banking system.
  • Climate Change.
