Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Saturday round up

I am overwhelmed today by the number of potential “bloggable” items coming to my attention.

There is a distinct limit that I need to recognize, to the amount of time I spend at the computer. So I am not going to write at length about any of these issues – even though they are all worthy of a lot of attention.

is an online exhibition about energy & transportation curated by Claude Willey and Ryan Griffis.

Mother Jones has a very comprehensive special on The Future of Energy – and in particular a long and very thoughtful, even handed piece on nuclear power. It is well worth your time.

And finally sad news from my homeland. Gwyneth Dunwoody, chair of the transport select committee and Parliament’s longest-serving female MP, has died age 77. The link takes you to the tributes. She was one of those very rare politicians, who deal with issues in their own way. She was a great champion of public transport and railways, but she always stood her ground and thought for herself.
