Some correspondence between Trevor and Alan Preece initiated by Trevor I believe.
We can discuss tomorrow.

Dear Both
After the weekend a few thoughts.
If we want the evocative, populist (but non-scientific) we could go for:
Gemini Project
Libra Project
Aquarius Project
or a bit more thoughtful:
40/20 Vision
A play on 20/20 vision (perfect sight) but standing for 40 percent
reduction by 2020.
Project Remission
Overtones of forgiveness and diminution
CAP - Cutting Air Pollution
RAP - Reducing Air Pollution
There are probably dozens of acronyms we could use with a bit of thought
(but should avoid Community Reduction of Air Pollution;-)
We probably still need some other brains on it. May I share the notion
with my team for their views?
They are all air signs of the Zodiac. Libra is probably best bet because
it has the sign of the scales - judicious balance of man's needs and the
environment etc.
