CTC: Interesting and related presentation (THURSDAY, February 12, 5:30 p.m. – S.F.)

February 11, 2009

To all:

Here is information on an event that just came in from my contacts at UC Davis. Clearly, transportation is a key component in our economy and society.


Dear NCA ITS-Davis Friends,

Please join us this coming Thursday evening at 5:30 p.m. at the Commonwealth Club (Blue Room) in downtown San Francisco where Dan Sperling will discuss the main themes of his new book with Deborah Gordon Two Billion Cars.  This event will be a wonderful opportunity for the ITS-Davis community to gather.  Please pass this on to others, bring a group, etc.  Arrive early and stay late and catch up with others in our great circle of clean transportation and energy experts.  Students, alumni and other friends will attend; we hope you make it.  Sign up directly with the Commonwealth Club.  See below to register and for directions.

AND, on Wednesday night, before the Commonwealth Club event, watch (or record!) The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  Dan will be the guest; don’t miss it.


Joe Krovoza,
(I’ll be there!)


THURSDAY, February 12, 5:30 p.m.

Dan Sperling, Founding Director, Institute of Transportation Studies; Board Member, California Air Resources Board 
By 2020, the number of cars on the planet will double to two billion. Without big changes to our cars, fuels and personal habits, the carbon footprint from transportation will rise above its current 25 percent of total emissions. Can   we break the cycle of “shock and trance?” Join energy expert Sperling as he reveals what is at stake if we refuse to move quickly, and what opportunities exist if we act now.

Location: Blue Room, Commonwealth Club/Club Office
Time: 5:30 p.m. wine and cheese/networking, 6 p.m. program
Cost: $12 members, $18 non-members
