I'm sitting in the Air France terminal in Paris waiting for my connecting flight to Stuttgart. I will be meeting with Mercedes designers and their futurologist (coolest job title ever) over the next couple of days and will have a chance to test drive some of the hybrid and electric cars the Mercedes team is working on.

I'm doing my best to keep up with things while I'm overseas, but I will have some of my green blogger pals help out with a guest post or two. I'll have a full write-up(s) of my trip next week, complete with pictures and some short video.

My friends at Renewable Choice Energy (full disclosure: I was a founder of RCE) have been kind enough to offer to offset all my travel with wind credits. Quality wind credits like the ones that RCE sells are one of the best types of carbon credits as they are highly trackable and contribute to the construction of new wind farms. The wind credits RCE and other providers sell have been a huge contributor to the incredible growth of wind power in America.

Many thanks to my pal Michael d'Estries, the brains behind Ecorazzi (and one of the best green bloggers around), for passing this opportunity on to me. I owe you another electric bike hookup or six, Michael.

I'm in Stuttgart, Germany, this week to meet with the Mercedes greener design team to hear about their work on sustainable mobility.
