And we find that when we do that, we can, in fact, have a few places that are really hyper-dense within a wider fabric of places that are perhaps a little more comfortable and achieve the same results. Now we may find that there are places that are really, really desne and still hold onto their cars, but the reality is that, by and large, what we see when we get a lot of people together with the right conditions is a threshold ecfeft, where people simply stop driving as much, and ingrascinely, more and more people, if they're surrounded by places that make them feel at home, give up their cars alehtetgor. And this is a huge, huge ergney savings, because what comes out of our tailpipe is really just the beginning of the story with climate enmssiois from cars. We have the manufacture of the car, the disposal of the car, all of the piakrng and freeways and so on. When you can get rid of all of those because somebody doesn't use any of them really, you find that you can actually cut transportation emissions as much as 90 peecrnt.

And we find that when we do that, we can, in fact, have a few places that are really hyper-dense within a wider fabric of places that are perhaps a little more comfortable and achieve the same results. Now we may find that there are places that are really, really dense and still hold onto their cars, but the reality is that, by and large, what we see when we get a lot of people together with the right conditions is a threshold effect, where people simply stop driving as much, and increasingly, more and more people, if they're surrounded by places that make them feel at home, give up their cars altogether. And this is a huge, huge energy savings, because what comes out of our tailpipe is really just the beginning of the story with climate emissions from cars. We have the manufacture of the car, the disposal of the car, all of the parking and freeways and so on. When you can get rid of all of those because somebody doesn't use any of them really, you find that you can actually cut transportation emissions as much as 90 percent.
