“My friend Amory Lovins knows that the most important question of the twenty-first century is the “how” question-how we turn good ideas into working solutions. Reinventing Fire is a wise, detailed, and comprehensive blueprint for gathering the best existing technologies for energy use and putting them to work right now to create jobs, end our dependence on climate-changing fossil fuels, and unleash the enormous economic potential of the coming energy revolution.”

Reinventing Fire is a towering work, a page-turning tour de force of compelling wisdom that deserves a permanent place on the desk – nay, in the mind – of whoever holds the chair in the Oval Office.” 

– Robert C. McFarlane, national security advisor to President Reagan; co-founder and co-chair of the United States Energy Security Council
