Stuart's latest PowerPoint presentation is "Oil, That Is". It explores connections between oil consumption, climate change, and transportation. This presentation offers some surprising observations, and then explores how we can dramatically reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, anytime we want to and without spending money. This is the companion presentation to the peer-reviewed paper, "The Challenge of the Oracle", available on the Writing page.

For those of you (admittedly few in number) who are looking at a traffic projection or estimate for a proposed transportation project, and wondering if it's realistic or not (hint: it's not), this PowerPoint presentation is for you. No audio or transcript available, but you can get the general message from the images. This is the companion presentation to the peer-reviewed paper of the same name, available on the Writing page.

Technical Support (I'm Stuck!)The PowerPoint presentations have a file type of "PPS" rather than the usual "PPT". This just means that the file can be viewed, but not edited.

The presentations require PowerPoint 2003 or newer. They will not work on older versions. If you do not have this software, you can get the free PowerPoint 2003 Viewer which will allow you to view these presentations. This only works on Windows-based computers. However, the video versions should work on any computer.
The presentations are not available in PDF format. They contain a lot of dynamic activity and overlapping images that get messed up in PDF files.
