After our last energy crisis, Amory Lovins described gas guzzlers and centralized electricity-generating facilities as the "hard energy path" for society. Especially concerned about committing to nuclear energy, Lovins knew it was a choice from which we could easily go back. Lovins knew there was no long-term solution for storing nuclear waste, and knew that probability and time only guaranteed future accidents at nuclear power plants. But he could not have imagined this country would be living with the threat of Bowser.

Never has the choice for efficiency and safe, renewable sources of energy been clearer.
