    Too bad new materials, "lighter weight" and "smarter" can't do much for cruisers on the water as for cars and trucks. Or ...

    I haven't seen it - lack of bandwidth - but still, why would Amory Lovins be right? Unless he's learnt some science and humility over the years, which I suppose is possible. Atypical, but possible.

Those old magazines are a treasure trove for stuff like that. As there are also lots of good practical 'how to do it' articles, I still have my collection.
