Amory Lovins and RMI Paving The Way For 10 Billion Billionaires
Amory Lovins is the cofounder, Chairman and Chief Scientist of Rocky Mountain Institute (www.rmi.org), an independent, market-oriented, entrepreneurial, nonprofit, nonpartisan think-and-do tank that creates abundance by design.
Mr Lovins gave his Keynote address to the Virtual Energy Forum held 24th and 25th of June ’09 (on-line at www.VirtualEnergyForum.com) and gave some startling facts and figures, which he’s very good at, that show an emerging brilliance of the use of technology to bring about massive energy savings and efficiencies that will see a rapid reversal of the green house effect and global warming.
In complete alignment with Buckminster Fuller’s philosophies and predictions of a comprehensive design revolution Mr Lovins shared how many major corporations were implementing new design strategies that returned massive savings in energy usage, often producing major savings in coal generated power and oil usage.
In his book GRUNCH of Giants – Gross Universal Cash Heist Buckminster Fuller says that the very same entities (multinational giants) who are controlling the economic and political future of mankind to the extent of causing massive economic hardship and collapse, can also be the same entities who create a green and healthy abundant future for everyone on planet earth.
Mr Lovins mentioned a $1billion investment in energy savings by DOW that returned $9billion. He mentions carbon fibre as the future of vehicle manufacturing, vehicle design through reduced weight and better ‘slipperyness’ plus the use of diesel and biofuels incorporated with hybrid ‘plug ins’ achieving massive improvements in fuel efficiencies … and it is already here.
He mentioned a $30billion carbon fibre automotive parts plant being built in Japan to supply Toyota, Honda and Nissan. The carbon fibre components being much lighter, more that ten times stronger than their steel predescessors and only marginally more expensive.
Boeing were the first aircraft manufacturer to properly design their new aircraft and consequently have achieved substantial advantage over Airbus. Then Ford Motor Company appointed the ex head of Boeing to oversea the transformation of the Ford Motor Company recently, and as you may have seen the other two US motor giants didn’t.
Wow … Mr Lovins is like a stream of ever flowing good news and positivity.
His company’s focus is on design to achieve the best possible results at the least cost (to humnanity) … and is 100% aligned with Your Healthy Planet.com’s philosophy of promoting and marketing the positive aspects of your product or service, to let the world know first of all that you exist, and secondly why they should invest in your product or service.
