In this intimate talk filmed at TED's offices, energy innovator Amory Lovins lays out the steps we must take to end the world's dependence on oil (before we run out). He shows how to get the US off oil and coal by 2050, $5 trillion cheaper, with no Act of Congress, led by business for profit. The key is integrating all four energy-using sectors—and four kinds of innovation. Some changes are already happening -- like lighter-weight cars and smarter trucks -- but some require a bigger vision.
In his new book, "Reinventing Fire," Amory Lovins shares ingenious ideas for the next era of energy.
