I'm Lovins It

Bad pun, but do read what energy guru Amory Lovins had to say to the Senate Energy Committee yesterday.  The upshot:  saving energy is far cheaper than importing it; and there are novel policy tools that (at least in theory) could break the current gridlock over energy conservation.  To wit:

Size- and revenue-neutral feebates  could speed the adoption of superefficient cars far more effectively than gasoline taxes or efficiency standards, and would make money for both consumers and automakers.

We like feebates.  A lot.  And we're always delighted when Lovins gets a chance to tout them to a high-profile audience.
