The Rocky Mountain Institute's Amory Lovins has won this year's Volvo Environment Prize. Or, at least, he will do so when the award is given out on Thursday in Stockholm. Each year, the prize is awarded by a selection committee of scientists and researchers from an independent foundation and comes with a 1.5 million SEK (about $230,000) purse.
Amory Lovins - co-founder and chairman of the Rocky Mountain Institute was interviewed by Newsweek columnist Fareed Zakaria last week. Lovins and the Institute he helped create have a very good reputation. They sit up on their mountain and think big thoughts, thoughts that we should be thinking for ourselves.
