GOING DOWN THE ROAD
Most things in our world have an industrial history. Behind the computer, the T-shirt, the vacuum cleaner is an industrial infrastructure fired by energy (fossil fuels mainly). Each component of our car or refrigerator has an industrial history.

Mainly unseen and out of mind, this global industrial infrastructure touches every aspect of our lives. It pervades our daily living from the articles it produces, to its effect on the economy and employment, as well as its effects on the environment.

Most of us don’t thnk about the road we are on. It is just there unless it has huge potholes or other problems. It allows our mobility from home to work to shopping to play or even to the hospital. It allows us to visit friends and relatives near and across the country. Huge trucks criss cross this country on this dark ribbon bringing goods and food. It allows us to drive to the airport. It allows the planes to take off and land.

ASPHALT IS EVERYWHERE AND WE DON’T REALLY SEE IT.
