    A problem with the infrastructure in the US is that it is interdependent and not energy efficient. When one part of the system fails, the parts nearby and connected to it can fail as well. So, instead of only repairing one part of the system, extra money and resources must be used to repair additional parts.

    The current infrastructure facilities in the US use 40% of produced energy and also emit 40% of the country’s total carbon dioxide emissions.

    The pieces of the infrastructure needs to be more resistant to disaster. Although this may be impossible unless more money is allocated to infrastructure, this may encourage the development of more efficient and longer lasting and sustainable technologies.
