Amory Lovins Has a New Blog on Yahoo! Green

Steve Puma | Thursday May 31st, 2007 | 3 Comments

amory_lovins.jpg “Enough about the climate problem. Let’s talk climate solutions.” Thus begins the new blog by Amory Lovins on Yahoo! Green. Prepare to have your assumptions turned on their heads as the co-author of Natural Capitalism and founder of the Rocky Mountain Institute shows us how “protecting the climate is not costly but profitable.”
Mr. Lovins has done pioneering work in the field of radical resource efficiency, which he sees as the first step towards a sustainable world. This YouTube video gives a great overview of the man and his work.
I think we are going to see some very insightful and optimistic writing here, and I’m very interested to see if he mentions any upcoming plans for his ultra-efficient Hypercar becoming a reality.

    Hi, I have an idea about making cars more efficient. I am not sure if my idea is new or really useful. I think if a steam turbine is added to gasoline electric hybrid car, the turbine can produce additional electricity and it could significantly increase the efficiency of the car. There would have to be a heat exchanger added to the cylinder block of the car to create the steam and the steam can be used to power a turbine that would produce the electricity.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    Dan,
    Has anyone done any research about using the kind of technology that you are talking about?

    Hi Steve, I can’t wait for electric transport to become mainstream, but I also feel that in these economically crushing times, costs will prohibit uptake. However, there are 2 retrofits currently available that can dramatically improve existing transport. I’ve tested both and measured efficiency gains of 15-30% and emissions reduction of 50-65%. If this is of interest, I would be happy to share what I have learned.
    Regards,
    Paul
