Cooling the planet with development and transportation?

I've written a little before about the proposal for the old J&J factory site on Route 1 in North Brunswick. Well, NJ Future is hosting an interesting meeting this Wedensday evening at that site:

Growing Cooler: Using Development and Transportation to Address Climate Change
Development patterns are both a key contributor to climate change and an essential factor in combating it. Meeting the growing demand for conveniently located homes in walkable neighborhoods could significantly reduce the growth in the number of miles Americans drive, shrinking the nation’s carbon footprint while giving people more housing choices. We invite you to join us for a presentation of the national study, Growing Cooler, which quantifies the connection between land use and greenhouse gas emissions, as well a discussion of the role of the state and local government in being part of the solution.
