Weaning America from the Oil Teat
I just got the February issue of Discover in the mail today. One of the featured stories this month is an article by Amory Lovins, who has a lot of sound, practical suggestions for reducing our dependence on fossil fuels.
This isn't a tofufest either -- it's very pragmatic stuff that doesn't rely on either exotic, undeveloped technologies or unrealistic changes in the way that we live. Rather, it's a lot of small, workable suggestions that add up to big differences in a number of different arenas.
The February content isn't out on Discover's website yet, but you should be able to pick up a print copy at any newstand now. Do check it out; it's worth a read.
