Website of the Week: Institute for Transport and Development Policy

Telling people not to destroy the planet is an oversimplified way of describing what people working on climate change issues often do.

I think that everyone realises that this isn't an effective approach and a fair number of organisations have taken this to heart. Setting out a clear vision of a low carbon future is a valuable thing to do.

Major changes are ahead and if we are to develop our vision we need to understand how climate friendly policies effect the wider social agenda. There is perhaps no clearer example to this than restructuring cities and developing new models of urban transport.

A book on this very topic, removing cars from cities, has just arrived at my doorstep today. I`m yet to start this formidable looking text as i`m to busy reading 'Homage to Catalonia' and 'The Price of Fire'...neither of which have anything to do with climate change but a fair bit to do with revolutions (the Spanish and the Bolivarian).

Ahh...back to the point i found a facinating website with loads of reading for anyone interested in transport and the myriad issues that this borders on.

Take a look and learn something about the cities of the future.
