We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas, and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the

We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to a Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal.” We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Finalists, and vote during the public voting period to help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal to those contests as well. Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. Sincerely, Contest Fellows If there are additional comments from the Judges & Fellows, they will be included below.

This proposal is incomplete in many areas. Key questions, such as what the expected impact would be, are not addressed. The idea has merit to it, but the proposal does not outline a feasible and realistic way to get from the highway system we have now to the envisioned system with linear motors. The cost (both in $ as well as in GHGs) is not addressed.
