China’s high-speed trains are envied by many countries, providing efficient mass transit across the country via a largely electrified network.

But with higher speeds, it’s a bit of a bumpy ride, right? Well, one Redditor posted a video showing how smooth a bullet train ride can be, even while traveling at high speed.

person in The video explains They can balance a coin on its edge on a windowsill next to where they’re sitting while the train hits 154 miles per hour. The millimeter coin hardly moves.

The footage drew some amazing comments. “Meanwhile in Canada we’re shaking like a champagne bottle going 80 km (50 mph),” one Redditor notice.

Another Redditor was Floors By another feature of the Chinese train: “I am most amazed at the legroom.”

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change proposed in a a report that, in order to reduce our dependence on the planet’s frenzied dirty energy sources such as jet fuel, intercity trips often covered by shorter journeys could instead be made via high-speed electric railways powered by renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind.

Of course, this would require significant investment in railway infrastructure in a number of countries, and construction alone would result in a lot of pollution. However, the long-term impact of increased electric rail travel would reduce harmful gas pollution and outweigh the short-term problem.

One notable problem with China’s high-speed electric railways is how to appropriate its power.

Research from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, it reported China Dialogue, found that pollution from China’s railways may be higher than expected because coal is mostly used in the country to generate electricity. However, China also continues More than Its ambitious clean energy goals By adding more renewable energy to its power grid, the level of pollution should become less of a problem.

Either way, high-speed electric rail travel should be the future of transportation for countries around the world that want to reduce planet-warming gas pollution in order to cool our planet.

Let’s just hope that, like China’s high-speed rail, it will be a smooth ride to get to that point.
