Journal or Magazine Article, 2013
On April 24, 2013, The Atlantic ran a cover feature by writer Charles C. Mann, “What If We Never Run Out of Oil?” The piece contained a number of inaccuracies, to which Rocky Mountain Institute co-founder and chief scientist Amory B. Lovins responded in a rebuttal the magazine posted on May 13, 2013. One day later, Mann offered a counter of his own, but perpetuated a range of errors. In this definitive reply, Lovins sets the record straight.
This piece by Amory and Judy Lovins was written in response to an article in The Wall Street Journal
about the design, construction, and renovation of the Lovins' home. The Lovins' response draws economic conclusions opposite to those of the original article.

In this invited testimony to the US Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources (SD-366, 0930-1130), Amory Lovins explained how innovation in business strategies, technologies, and policies can lead to energy independence, energy security, and prosperity. Lovins argued that the surest path to an energy policy that enhances security and prosperity is free-market economics: letting all ways to save or produce energy compete fairly, at honest prices, no matter which kind they are, what technology they use, where they are, how big they are, or who owns them. That would make the energy security, oil, climate, and most proliferation problems fade away, and would make our economy and democracy far stronger.
