As you may be able to tell, Mapawatt is a big fan of Amory Lovins. He talks the talk, and walks the walk. Not only that, but he has been walking the walk for more than 30 years.
His energy efficient Colorado home was built in 1982 and the conservation technologies he used back then were many of the same ones you can use today in your home.
You may have never heard of TED (no, not The Energy Detective), but they have some amazing speakers. You can really get lost for a day just perusing their website and watching the presentations.
Two of my "sustainability all-stars" have spoken at some of their events and I highly recommend watching their talks.
