Lovins on Baseload Power: What I Would Have Said on Bloomberg TV....Given the Chance (Video)
This week, Amory Lovins, chairman of the Rocky Mountain Institute and author of "Reinventing Fire: Bold Business Solutions for the New Energy Era," appeared on Pimm Fox's "Taking Stock" on Bloomberg TV along with Gordon Johnson, an analyst at Axiom Capital Management Inc., to talk about the outlook for shares of solar energy companies.
See how Lovins would have responded to Fox's baseload power question--if he had the opportunity to respond.
