National Geographic : 1974 Apr
General Telephone & Electronics, One Stamford Forum, Stamford, Conn. 06904 Mass transit. 1974. Car pools, of course. Public transportation, certainly. And a third, important way to save energy in getting from place to place. Yes, the telephone. Used with common sense the telephone can be a big energy conserver. It can, for example, spare you the fuel (and frustra tions) of driving 20 miles to surprise the folks, when the surprise is on you because the folks have gone away for the day.
