Saying goodbye to Lee Schipper

Very sad news. Lee Schipper, physicist and researcher with Lawrence Livermore and then founder of the sustainable transport research program at the World Resources Institute, passed away from cancer yesterday. He was a great speaker, a terrific role model, and wonderful writer on transportation and energy, and he will be missed.

Here is a link to his obituary at the WRI site.
