Amory Lovins, co-founder of the environmental think-tank Rocky Mountain Institute, offers his very compelling thoughts and arguments regarding just how much both Republicans and Democrats are dropping the ball on renewable energy in this great piece from Discovery magazine.

The topics include include energy/electricity, oil, new plastics, hydrogen and wind. KEY: his writing is simple, easy to understand and a very good “starting point” for anyone who’s either too overwhelmed by the glut of information out there or just starting to realize how important this is. Even if you’re not interested in this stuff, the content in this article is very, very interesting.
