What You're Saying

@BobMetcalfe: "From EG Monterey, @AmoryLovins enlarges energy problems to solve with systems thinking, e.g. virtuous cycle of ligther, slipperier cars." 

Michael S Uhl: "Negawatts was one of the many paradigm shifting ideas that germinated at RMI and reached young engineers, financiers, environmental scientists, and dreamers. These ideas committed me to a career in efficiency and sustainable development."
