Default Amory Lovins on TED : A 50 Year Plan for Energy

Gents,

I just finished watching this talk by Amory Lovins. He is an American Physicist, an Environmental Scientist and the Chairman and Chief Scientist for the Rocky Mountain Institute. He is also a 1993 recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship and finally in 2009 was named by Time Magazine as one of the 100 World's most influential people.

This is a long talk at 30 minutes but well worth it and if he is even close to being correct then there is a chance that our future looks far better then we have perhaps believed.

Fred

Thanks for the link, Fred. It was definitely worth the 30 minutes. The best part of this plan is that the Government will have a hard time screwing it up, because it isn't involved (except maybe that there will be lost bribes and campaign funding that can't be recouped).

Charles,

You are welcome and I could not agree with you more. The Government would be hard pressed to mess this up.
