“To the historian studying this tragic period of human history, the most astounding fact is that the victims knew precisely what was happening and why.  Indeed, they chronicled it in detail precisely because they knew that fossil-fuel combustion was to blame.  Historical analysis also shows that Western civilization had the technological know-how and capability to effect an orderly transition to renewable energy, yet the available technologies were not implemented in time.”

– From Avery Lovins, Reinventing Fire: Bold Business Solutions for the New Energy Era
