Dear Pierre,

This all sounds excellent.

I was initially thinking of doing small projects around key datasets
related to various aspects of CO2 emissions and climate change (perhaps
along the likes of our Europe's Energy project [1]).

But your suggestion sounds great, and I look forward to hearing more! :-)

All the best,
