Amory Lovins, of the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), one of the anti-nuclear industry’s leading mouthpieces has produced another diatribe against the use of the cleanest, cheapest, most abundant, and most reliable energy source available both now and in the immediate future.
You can find this document at http://www.rmi.org/sitepages/pid1154.php. During the next couple of days, I will pull out key passages for analysis and discussion.
Here is some background about RMI from their own web site:
Research & Consulting: A Proven Track Record
Since 1982, RMI has worked with corporations, governments, communities, and citizens to help them solve problems, gain competitive advantage, increase profits, and create wealth through the more productive use of resources.
RMI’s Research & Consulting team provides a broad range of consulting services to businesses and organizations of all sizes.
What began as a small group of colleagues focusing on energy policy has since grown into a broad-based institution with approximately forty full-time staff, an annual budget of nearly $6 million (over half of it earned through programmatic enterprise), and a global reach.
Participation in the anti-nuclear industry can be a pretty lucrative way to make a living. Maybe I should change sides? Not. Stay tuned.
