Double-Checking The Facts on Amory Lovins

After giving an interview with the Toronto Star, Amory Lovins of the Rocky Mountain Institute is starting to kick up some dust again. And as any reader of NEI Nuclear Notes remembers, whenever Lovins makes his case against nuclear energy, we warn folks to double-check his data.

Below I've listed a selection of entries from our archives where we've dealt with his claims in detail:

Rod Adams vs. Amory Lovins
Bad Data Leads to Bad Conclusions
More Bad Data From Amory Lovins
Revisiting RMI's Bad Data
Revisiting RMI and Amory Lovins

I'd also suggest you take a closer look at some of the more recent work by Rod Adams of Atomic Insights.

Lovins math continues to confuse me
Are these examples of the "micro" power that Lovins likes?

And here's a doozy you shouldn't miss:

Happy reading!

In the middle of all the confusion that Lovins causes there is a message that tne pronuclear people should hear: Big Is Slow. The nuclear industry needs to revitalize its thinking by developing much smaller systems that can be put into position quickly. The regulatory regime used today stifles this kind of innovation.
