In the right place.

Books I recently checked out from the library for research:

Informal Transport in the Developing World
Paratransit in America
Urban travel and sustainable development
Transit Oriented Development
Sustainability and Cities
Rural Transport Policy

I am so totally in the right place. I actually want to read these books.

This is what I see as being (one of the many things) wrong with our society.

(This image is taken out of context from an article on energy efficiency of set-top-boxes. Striking, no?)

Been around a long time.

In reading articles on sustainable and climate change, I am struck by how far back they date. I often see papers from the early 1990s. The "Green Revolution" may have become popular around 2004, but even the philosophy of corporate sustainability took shape many years before.
