[TIPS] winning the oil game?

There are two sites here. First, the TED video: http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/51 (You can download his powerpoint and presentation here, too.)

Then there is the speaker’s site: http://www.oilendgame.com/

 

Send this to your sociology teachers and your current events teachers and even you business teachers. Amory Lovins takes us through his vision for how the US can get off our dependency for oil. He’ll do so AND increase the job markets and the economy AND lower the emissions – all by 2040. We’ve already got the technology. Lighter, stronger materials and better designs. As he says, SOMEBODY is going to make these cars. Will it be the US?

 

This is a fascinating talk with even more fascinating statistics. What do you think? Watch this video and you, too, may be convinced that it CAN happen.

 

Oh… and watch it to see his powerpoint, too. Do you think it’s an example of a GOOD powerpoint?
