[image: Amory Lovins]Amory Lovins will be speaking in Portland at noon on
Friday, March 4 at Reed College in Vollum lecture hall. The lecture is
sponsored by Reed's environmental studies program and is entitled "Disruptive
Oil and Electricity Futures
The world’s mightiest industries—oil and electricity—now face grave and
potentially fatal disruption from many directions. Advanced energy
efficiency and renewable supplies are taking over the world market so
quickly that even more fossil fuel is becoming unsellable for competitive
reasons than will be unburnable for climate reasons. The pace of this
transformation is set not by incumbents but by agile and uninhibited
insurgents who leave the old industries no place to hide. For incumbents to
survive and thrive in the new energy world will take fundamental and
uncomfortable change. This epochal shift and its relocation of capital have
already begun and will only accelerate.
Physicist Amory B. Lovins—ex-Oxford don, honorary U.S. architect, Swedish
engineering academician—has written 530 papers and 31 books, taught at ten
universities, redesigned numerous buildings, vehicles, and factories, and
advised industry and governments for 40+ years in 60+ countries. A U.S.
National Petroleum Council member, he advises the Chief of Naval
Operations. He received the “Alternative Nobel,” Blue Planet, Volvo, Zayed,
Onassis, Nissan, Shingo, and Mitchell Prizes, MacArthur and Ashoka
Fellowships, 12 honorary doctorates, and the Heinz, Lindbergh, National
Design, and World Technology Awards. Time named him one of the world’s 100
most influential people; Foreign Policy, one of 100 top global thinkers.
Please RSVP to Amy Baum at abaum at rmi.org if you plan to attend.
