Energy Guru Amory Lovins' 50 Year Plan for Energy

In a recent intimate talk filmed at TED's offices, energy theorist Amory Lovins discusses a 50 year energy plan that can eliminate America's addiction to oil and fossil fuels as well as cut natural gas consumption by one third by 2050. The system would shift toward renewables and more efficient use of energy.

Lovins estimates this plan will cost $5 trillion less than current costs, and could support a 158% larger economy. Even more, this transition will require no new inventions, no new acts from congress, and no new subsidies. How is this possible?
