      Dear Friends,

      Some of you have been seeing bits and pieces over the last weeks of elements
      of an open brainstorming project that I ham trying to help make happen,
      under the felicitous title, "Reinventing transport in cities".

      The latest example has been the excellent response and flow of comments that
      I have received from many of you in the last days on the topic of
      "Estimating CO2 impacts of transport innovations and changes". I hope to
      make full use of them in a final short note which reflects experience, view
      and competence that do way beyond anything that I might have to offer on
      this topic -- and I will copy in as well a full set of the comments and
      suggestions received so that you can see for yourselves the richness of this

      As of today, I think we have the next piece in this perplexing puzzle far
      enough along that I can take your time with it. For starters you have
      attached a short introduction to latest "collegial workpad" in this series.
      The key to what it is all about is right there on page 2. If it interests
      you sufficiently you can find the full report in both PDF and PPT versions
      (the latter being more versatile to work with) on the working site: New
      Mobility Climate Emergency Project at http://climate.newmobility.org .

      The next question is what if anything do we do with this. I am hoping that
      our friends on the Clinton Climate team will find some use in it, and above
      all that you may in your own work. You will note that, as almost always,
      this is proposed as a group thinking exercise, so if you have ideas,
      reactions, proposals, I would like to suggest that we share them in the new
      mobility Idea Factory, i.e., by posting your thoughts to
      NewMobilityCafe@yahoogroups.com .

      I look forward with real interest to hearing from you on this. It's amazing
      what can happen when a bunch of clever citizens put their heads and hearts
      together. And since it's 2007, we don't all have to be in the same room to
      do just that.
