      I don't have the time or resources to undertake such a project right now,
      but for anyone who is interested, one possible comparison would be with the
      recently completed Cairo metro system. Since Cairo is so badly polluted with
      vehicle emissions, comparisons of emissions savings would also be very
      relevant.
