|We are not the only ones advocating and looking forward to weaning ourselves off fossil fuels. This very accessible talk shows us the way forward – but a way forward you will only see soon by voting Green. The cost of delay will haunt us all and be to the detriment of future generations.
Watch and learn!
In this intimate talk filmed at TED’s offices, energy theorist Amory Lovins lays out the steps we must take to end the world’s dependence on oil (before we run out). Some changes are already happening — like lighter-weight cars and smarter trucks — but some require a bigger vision.
His new book and site, Reinventing Fire, offers actionable solutions for four energy-intensive sectors of the economy: transportation, buildings, industry and electricity. Lovins has always focused on solutions that conserve natural resources while also promoting economic growth.
