Amory Lovins on revolutionizing our energy system

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.

This talk is an overview of his book, Reinventing Fire, which I'm now going to read. This talk provides a nice, positive, counterpoint to a doom and gloom we're going to crash before we can save anything perspective.  I suspect the truth is somewhere in between.
