Self description: "'China at the Crossroads: Energy, Transportation and the
21st Century,' by INFORM's Senior Energy Consultant, James S. Cannon,
describes the implications of the vast increase in the number of vehicles
on the road in China. Translated by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and on

Administration, the report is available for free downloading from INFORM's

change."
