      gas emissions over the next 10 to 15 years."
      - William Jefferson Clinton, 1 August 2006


      As many of you in our several New Mobility programs and discussion groups are aware, we have been enthusiastic supporters of these goals of the Clinton Climate Initiative (http://www.clintonfoundation.org/cf-pgm-cci-home.htm ) as set out in the opening statement of President Clinton back in the summer of 2006. In this spirit here is the latest information that we have from them their first report on their collaborative transportation program event with the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (http://www.c40cities.org) that took place in London in the first week of this month:.
